As Aljaz is had to leave their house to compete in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, Janette has spoken out about having to temporarily split from him. This year, contestants and choreographers will once again be required to construct an isolation “bubble” to avoid infection during the ongoing epidemic, after the effective approach used in 2020.
