Janette Manrara has been able to "reconnect" with Aljaz Skorjanec amid the coronavirus lockdown.
The ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ star and Aljaz – who have been married since 2017 – have been able to spend quality time together during the pandemic, and Janette has relished the opportunity to be with her husband away from the stresses of work.
She shared: "Our normality is travelling and staying in hotels and moving around at [a] million miles an hour.
"So for us to have the opportunity to spend time at home, cooking and watching movies has been so nice.
"We spend a lot of time together anyway, but we are always working.
"In lockdown, we have been able to reconnect again just as Aljaz and Janette – not the dancers but the human beings – and it kind of reminded us why we fell in love in the first place."
Aljaz, 30, has also heaped praise on ‘Strictly’ bosses for their efforts to ensure the show goes ahead later this year.
The professional dancer is confident the programme will air in 2020, despite the threat posed by the pandemic.
He told HELLO! magazine: "We can’t wait to get back on the ‘Strictly’ floor. We really hope the season is going to move forward because we all love doing it.
"Everything that has been thrown at the producers so far has been handled so incredibly well. So I’m sure that they’re going to find a way that’s best for the show and the individuals doing it."
Meanwhile, Craig Revel Horwood recently revealed he remains confident the upcoming series will go ahead as planned.
The 55-year-old TV star believes BBC bosses will ultimately find a way to stage the series, despite the ongoing health crisis.
He explained: "I’ve spoken to the producers and they’re working through absolutely everything to make it happen. I know, fingers crossed, it will.
"There is some way around it, there has to be. People love the show, it’s great entertainment … We really want it back and I know BBC One are working extremely hard to make that happen for the audience."
