We all know about that blasted Strictly curse, so it’s actually really nice to be able to report that two of the stars of the glittery show have tied the knot.

Janette Manrara and Aljaž Skorjanec are now officially married!

The loving and rather striking couple tied the knot this weekend in front of fellow Strictly star Lousie Redknapp, who made her first appearance since it was revealed she was splitting from her husband Jamie.

It was a shock when the headlines came out. The couple had been together for almost 20 years. Louise was on holiday with her kids when the news broke but she quickly flew home

Before the wedding, Janette gushed that she was lucky to be walking down the aisle to meet her "best friend".

She told OK! magazine: "I’m not feeling nervous – I’m really excited that I’m marrying Aljaz. When we were at the end of our tour, my make-up artist Marcos asked me about the schedule for the day.

"As I started to write it down I felt tears in my eyes. I looked at Aljaz and said, 'I am so excited for us to get married'. That’s when it hit me for the first time."

Janette went on: "We’ve only spent two days apart for the stag and hen and I have lost track of the number of times I’ve said that I really miss him. We spend all our time together."

The pair got engaged in 2015 at Dance Attic, an iconic dance rehearsal studios in Fulham.

Aljaz got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend to marry him. It’s a romantic choice of venue because that’s where they met in 2010.

After the wedding, Janette and Aljaz took their sparkling guests which included Susanna Reid, Zoe Ball and Deborah Meadon to Bath House in London.
