“He literally just ignores me so I have to text his wife and say, ‘Janet, Aljaž  hasn’t texted me back’.

“Then he’ll text me back but I don’t want his second hand texts!”

The two appeared on the 2014 series of Strictly, and made it to week seven.

How did Aljaž respond?

Aljaž looked a bit sheepish when Alison put him on the spot.

But the Strictly joker responded in fine style.

Unzipping his jacket, he said: “I’ve been doing one thing in lockdown…

“If you can see I’m starting to sweat it’s because I’ve been wearing this T-shirt throughout the whole of lockdown.

Today is the time when I can finally reveal it. It’s been a year, Alison.

“Today is the time when I can finally reveal it. It’s been a year, Alison.”

Printed on the t-shirt was a picture of Alison.

The presenter burst out laughing.

It looks like the two are friends again!
