Strictly Come Dancing 2020 pro Aljaz Skorjanec is missing his wife and co-star Janette Manrara, who is living in a separate building in order to follow coronavirus guidance for the ballroom dancing programme. No doubt it has been difficult for the couple, who have been together for almost ten years, and married for three, to be apart and even more so as she celebrated a special occasion earlier this week.

On Monday, Jannette celebrated her 37th birthday.

“Can’t wait to hold u in my arms again. Love you. Adore you. Miss you!”(sic) Aljaz wrote online in a sweet birthday post.

The accompanying photo, which he shared with his 443,000 followers, showed the couple in a loving embrace during a sun-soaked getaway.

Earlier this week, the pair were briefly reunited on an episode of spin-off show It Takes Two, however they are not allowed to touch each other.

Janette was on the programme with her celebrity partner HRVY, while Aljaz was making an appearance with Clara Amfo.

The couple were only able to speak to each other from across the studio.

“I miss you, I am so proud of you and I’m a little bit trapped here but I can’t wait to hug you,” the 30-year-old said, while standing behind some red and white tape.

“The hardest bit is when I do see him, my instinct is to run and hug him, but, of course, I can’t touch him,” Janette previously said of their separation.

Last week, Aljaz and his celebrity partner Clara topped the leaderboard with their impressive Charleston routine.

The couple were awarded two tens from judges Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke, and a nine from notoriously hard to please judge Craig Revel Horwood.

Tonight they will take to the dance floor to perform a Samba to That’s The Way (I Like It) by KC And The Sunshine Band.

His wife Janette will dance the Tango with HRVY.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 7.15pm on BBC One.
