Janette Manrara discusses her landlord, Strictly co-star Craig Revel Horwood.
JANETTE MANRARA made an appearance. Craig Revel Horwood, the judge on Strictly Come Dancing, used to be more than just a friend to her and her husband Alja Korjanec, as he was also their landlord.
Janette Manrara, 37, confessed that she and her husband Alja korjanec, 31, rented their Strictly Come Dancing co-star Craig Revel Horwood’s flat in London while they were seeking for a new place to live. They were both “very lucky” to have him as a landlord, according to the former professional dancer.
We were extremely fortunate to have him as our landlord.
Janette, who will return to the show as the new host of It Takes Two, detailed how the opportunity arose in a recent interview.
She explained, “Alja and I were looking for a new home to reside in London.”
“We were talking about it with Craig on the Strictly tour, and he said, ‘Well, I’m looking for someone to rent out my apartment.’
“For nearly two years, we rented his flat between Camden and West Hampstead, and he came in all the time.”
Despite how he seems on camera to those watching the BBC show at home, she went on to characterize Craig as a person with “the biggest heart.”
“He is really the finest, loveliest, friendliest person,” the dancer exclaimed.
“I know he’s Mr Nasty on TV, but he’s got the biggest heart off camera!”
“Having him as a landlord was a wonderful blessing.”
The surprising revelation comes just a few weeks before the 16th series, which will air later this year.
The first four celebrity contestants were announced earlier this week, and fans are excited to see who else will be making a mark on the dance floor this season.
On Wednesday, Tom Fletcher, AJ Odudu, and Robert Webb were revealed as the first 2021 contestants.
On Thursday morning, 2012 Bake Off winner John Whaite was announced as the fourth contestant.
He told BBC Radio 2’s Matt Lucas that it was a “honor” to compete, and that he would be following in the footsteps of last year’s boxer Nicola Adams, who was the first to have a same-sex partner.
He called the collaboration “a huge step forward in terms of representation and inclusivity.”
