The 2020 show of Strictly Come Dancing hangs in the balance of the government and whether or not the UK returns to normal in upcoming months following the current coronavirus pandemic. Professional dancers Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec are set to return this September should the next series be given the green light. However, Janette hinted she may leave the series when she opened up on family life with Aljaz. 

Earlier this year, BBC announced which professionals would be returning to this year’s series. 

While the broadcaster, cast, crew and fans all hope to see the Strictly magic back on screens,  it is yet to be officially confirmed. 

In the meantime, Janette and Aljaz joined This Morning presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes via a live video link to talk about how they’re coping during the coronavirus lockdown. 

Ruth couldn’t help but ask Janette whether or not a ‘corona-baby’ could be the result of her and Aljiaz being stuck indoors together.

“Talking of love, a lot of people are predicting a possible baby boom or something!” Ruth remarked 

“Because a lot of couples have a lot of time on their hands if you know what I’m saying…” 

Laughing at the suggestion, Janette replied: “Corona-babies!” 

Aljaz interjected, swerving Ruth’s initial suggestion: “I am transforming myself into a baby during this time!” 

Janette and Aljaz have been married for three years having met through the dancing community. 

Not only are they one another’s partners in dance competitions, they also have their own tour which has had to be postponed until next year. 

As for whether or not they are looking to start a family, the couple appeared on ITV’s Lorraine earlier this year and spoke about it. 

They told the host: “We talk about it all the time. We adore kids.

“You should see us around babies, we get so broody, both of us. 

“[But] Especially as a woman, it’s a big decision, for me whenever we do decide to have a child.

“We are definitely going to have children,’ she confirmed.  

It seems the pair want a few more Strictly wins under their belts before they settle down.

Aljaz won series 11 – the first series he took part in with Abbey Clancy. 

He then came second with Gemma Atkinson in series 15. 

As for Janette, she has never lifted the coveted Glitterball Trophy, the closest she came to it was with Jake Wood in series 12. 

Strictly Come Dancing returns to the BBC later this year.
