'Strictly Come Dancing' professionals Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec's Christmas celebrations last three days because they are "mad about" the festive season
Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec's Christmas celebrations last three days.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' professionals are "mad about" the holiday but this year's festivities will be very different to 2015's as they are off to sunny Miami, whereas last year they enjoyed snow in Slovenia.
Janette said: "When Aljaz and I first met, we'd spend Christmas separately, with me in Miami and Aljaz at home in Slovenia. But we missed each other way too much.
"After a gorgeous white Christmas last year with his family in Slovenia, this year we'll be putting on sandals and shorts to spend it with my family in Miami. We're all mad about Christmas. It's a three-day event for us, with huge Christmas dinners and fun and games for everyone."
And it's not just Christmas the pair are looking forward to, as the couple are also trying to put the finishing touches on their wedding plans so that they can tie the knot next year.
She explained: "We're on the verge of finalising the venue and are about to compile our guest list. As for my wedding dress, I haven't even looked for one yet. I still don't know what I want."
Aljaz added: "Whatever Janette wears on our wedding day, she will look beautiful. And whatever Janette likes, she can have."
Janette concluded: "He's been like that since we met."
The loved-up dancing duo first met at a dance studio in London in 2010 but it wasn't love at first sight for both of them as Janette resisted Alkaz's advances at first.
She recalled: "When he walked in, everyone went, 'Oooh' and started giggling. Although he kept asking me out, it took me a year to give in and go on a date with him, I couldn't say no to that beautiful face anymore because he's so handsome.
"Normally, that means trouble to me but then when I got to know him, I realised that although he'd gorgeous on the outside, he's a thousand times more beautiful inside."
