Janette Manrara discusses the’sadness’ of her new Strictly role, saying, ‘It’s tough.’
JANETTE MANRARA has opened up about one of the drawbacks of her new role as host of the Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two.
Janette Manrara will take over from Zoe Ball on Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two, the BBC announced earlier this year.
Janette, a ballroom and Latin dancer, co-hosts the show with Rylan Clark-Neal, but she admitted there was one aspect of her new role that she didn’t like.
When asked if it’s harder to say goodbye to couples each week, the former Strictly pro said no.
On It Takes Two, Janette interviews the contestants and their Strictly partners every week.
At the Together For Short Lives Ball, she spoke with This Website.
“Every year, saying goodbye to someone is difficult,” Janette said.
“They’ve been there for a long time, especially now that we’ve passed the halfway point.
“They understand how it works and how much it means to them.”
“And seeing it taken away from them kills me as well.”
The ballroom and Latin dancer stated that she believes couples are more concerned with surviving each week than with winning the Glitterball Trophy.
“It’s not that anyone wants to actually go and win,” she said.
“I’m sure they want to win, but instead of thinking about how to win the competition, they’re thinking about how they want to stay and not leave.”
“As a dancer, it’s really nice to know that people have fallen in love with dancing and don’t want to stop.”
The host of It Takes Two admitted she couldn’t decide who would win this year’s series.
“It feels like it’s one of those series this year where you just don’t know what’s going to happen,” she continued.
“It’s everyone’s goal to get to the final, and there are only three people in the final now that we’ve lost Rob [Webb].”
“I would not want to compete this year because it is such a difficult competition.”
