Janette Manrara sheds tears as she returns to the Strictly set after leaving her professional career.
JANETTE MANRARA was left “very emotional” after seeing the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 pros shoot their opening routine, just weeks after quitting her job as a pro.
Janette Manrara, 37, has said that filming with the Strictly Come Dancing pros yesterday left her “very tearful.” The Miami-born dancer revealed on her Instagram story that she had been working on the opening segment of the BBC competition with some of her former colleagues.
Janette was announced as the new host of Strictly Come Dancing’s It Takes Two in June, following the departure of Zoe Ball.
Prior to her latest role, the dance floor diva had spent eight years as a professional on Strictly Come Dancing.
“I just got home, I’m fatigued, and I’ve been fairly emotional because I’ve been with the pros today,” she said.
“I’m filming a group number that I’ve been working on with them.
“I was in tears because they are such an amazing set of people. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have danced with them for so many years and to still be able to collaborate with them now.
She said, “Yeah, I love that group; you guys are in for some fantastic pro dances.”
Janette first appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2013, where she danced with Julien MacDonald. After that, she worked with Jake Wood (2014), Peter Andre (2015), Melvin Odoom (2016), Aston Merrygold (2017), Dr Ranj Singh (2018), Will Bayley (2019), and HRVY last year.
Now, she and Rylan Neal-Clark are poised to host the show’s spin-off, which will be her latest challenge.
Janette recently revealed that her husband, Strictly pro dancer Aljaz Korjanec, had to temporarily move out due to the program.
She told OK! last week, “We always do a large rehearsal for all the pro dances, and they get performed and sometimes even recorded before the series begins.”
“Because Covid is still an issue, the pros and the production team will have to isolate to rehearse and film all of the professional dances, which means Alja will have to leave our home,” she stated.
They won’t be able to live together, according to the TV presenter, but it won’t be “as long as last year.”
“We had to isolate for the entire series last year, and I didn’t see Alja for 11.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
