Strictly’s Aljaz Skorjanec reveals rehearsals are ‘starting very soon’ for upcoming series and reveals he and wife Janette Manrara are broody

Aljaz Skorjanec has revealed rehearsals for the upcoming series Strictly Come Dancing will ‘start very soon’. 

The professional dancer, 30, spoke to FUBAR Radio’s Access All Areas on Thursday about how this year’s show will be very different due to strict safety procedures amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Aljaz also admitted that both himself and his wife Janette Manrara, 36, are broody after his sister Lara announced she was pregnant with her second child.

Talking of the new series, the television star revealed the team are ‘slowly getting ready for it’. 

Aljaz said: ‘Obviously things are going to be very different this year. More than anything, I’m so happy that the season is going ahead. 

‘I feel like people would be even sadder if there was no Strictly on.

The professional dancer also shared his thoughts on the potential for their being a same sex couple, after Dancing On Ice made history by partnering up Ian ‘H’ Watkins with Matt Evers in the series earlier this year.  

Aljaz said: ‘I’ve thought about that and even watching Dancing on Ice, they did such an amazing job. Even around the world, not just Dancing on Ice, they’ve had same sex couples.’

When asked if he’d be up for the challenge he said: ‘You could do so much! So many cool lifts, so many cool tricks that you couldn’t do otherwise. I don’t know, never say never. 

‘If the producers do decide to go that way, never say never!’

A few weeks ago, Aljaz excitingly announced that he was going to become an uncle again as his sister Lara is pregnant with her second child. 

When asked if he was becoming broody, the dancer revealed: ‘I am.

‘Janette and I can’t wait to have kids but so far the life has been, pre corona obviously, been so busy that we didn’t have time to think about anything else, with tours and Strictly. 

‘But yes obviously, hopefully, hopefully, not obviously, hopefully in the future! But whenever, I’m going to be so happy. I’ll tell you both, I’m going to be chuffed to bits.’

 The couple have been married since 2017.
