Strictly: Janette says Christmas plans with Aljaz ’up in the air’
Aljaz, 30, will be supporting his wife Janette, 36, this evening as she performs in her first-ever Strictly Come Dancing final with singing sensation HRVY, 21. The pair are on course to win the Glitterball Trophy after their former co-stars, including the BBC show professional dancer’s husband, were booted out of the competition. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent rules put in place, the married couple have had to live away from one another so they could form support bubbles with their partners. After such a trying year, they would have liked to have travelled abroad but it seems the current climate could put a stop to their future plans.
Speaking with Express.co.uk and other publications ahead of the final, the Cuban-born professional dancer explained what the future holds for her and Aljaz.
Janette said: “I’ve started packing up already, bits and bobs in the flat that I’m in because finally on Sunday, I go home.
“I think these 11 weeks is the longest I have been away from Aljaz,” she added, expressing how much she has missed her other half.
Of what she and her spouse wanted to do over the festive period, HRVY’s partner replied: “Our Christmas plans are still up in the air because of COVID and the guidelines.
“We are hoping we will get to go to Miami to see my family and spend some time with my grandparents that I’ve not seen in a while but Sunday I cannot wait to be home on my couch just resting with my husband.”

Since the pair began a relationship some years ago, they have always taken it in turns to see each other’s families over Christmas.
Last December, the pair travelled to Slovenia to see Aljaz’s parents after they were both booted out of the competition early.
This means Janette hasn’t seen her loved ones across the pond in almost two years and she is desperate to see them.
Even though they might not be able to travel this year, it seems the talented pair could be starting a brood of their own very soon.

Appearing on an Instagram Live session with her co-star Gorka Marquez, 30, recently, Janette joked about her plans for the future.
After seeing her fellow finalist’s daughter Mia, the Cuban-born professional said: “Aljaz and I are going to have a baby and move to Manchester.”
“Well, you have the best time now, you know, you’re at home together, no dancing… there is nothing better to do,” the father-of-one jokingly replied.
Speaking on Lorraine earlier this year, Aljaz and his wife referred to having children of their own sometime in the future.

Janette said in February: “Especially as a woman, it’s a big decision, for me whenever we do decide to have a child.
“We talk about it all the time. We adore kids. You should see us around babies,” the professional dancer explained.
“We get so broody, both of us,” Aljaz’s wife continued before confirming: “We are definitely going to have children.”
Before any of their plans can come to fruition, HRVY and his partner need to see if they can claim the Glitterball Trophy.
According to the latest odds from Coral bookmakers, the couple stand in good stead to become champions of the show at 7/4.
However, they first need to defeat frontrunner Bill Bailey, 55, who is the favourite to secure victory at 8/11.
Spokesperson Harry Aitkenhead said: “It’s time for the Strictly Come Dancing final and we make Bill Bailey the one to beat and the odds on favourite.
“If Bill falls short, then HRVY looks the one to swoop in and lift the Glitterball Trophy,” the bookmaker added.
Strictly Come Dancing concludes Saturday at 6pm on BBC One.
