Janette Manrara has insisted her husband Aljaž Škorjanec will not be leaving Strictly Come Dancing anytime soon, after speculation he may be leaving the show.
Over the weekend, many viewers thought Aljaž could quit the BBC prom show for good, after a comment he made when he and Sara Davies were knocked out of the competition.
” I will miss you so much. I will miss dancing with you, ”he told his dance partner, before adding,“ I will miss everything in this show.
“Thank you all and thank you for supporting us. “
The fact that his comments aired shortly after a report in The Sun claiming that he and Oti Mabuse would both be leaving strictly at the end of the current series has raised concerns among many fans that Aljaž’s days as a professional on the BBC’s hit dance show could be numbered.
Luckily, his wife Janette has now said this is not the case.
Speaking to Zoe Ball on her Radio 2 show, Janette said, “He’s not leaving! I will put an end to the rumors, it does not happen.
“He is too much in love with the series [to quit]… I think he was so happy with Sara and they just made an amazing bond, an amazing friendship.
She added: “He fell in love to go to Newcastle and be with his family and meet everyone over there up north. So I think he was just upset that the show ended for him.
Aljaž and Janette both joined Strictly in 2013, when he was partnered with Abbey Clancy and won the show.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Janette would not be returning to the Strictly dance floor after landing a new role featuring spinoff show It Takes Two.
