STRICTLY Come Dancing viewers went wild when married pro dancing couple, Janette Manrara and Aljaž Škorjanec, reunited during the final.
The studio audience audibly gasped when the married couple appeared during Ed Sheeran’s performance to deliver a very passionate dance, before joining the group ensemble.

The two signed up to the BBC dance show for its 11th series in 2013, and got married in 2017 – with many of their fellow Strictly pros and celebrity pals attending the wedding.
But the couple surprised everyone when they reunited on the dance floor to deliver a jaw-dropping routine as Ed sung his hit, Bad Habits behind them.
They showed why they are highly sought after professional dancers, as they pulled off some unbelievable moves.
The surprise moment and subsequent sexy dance got plenty of viewers hot under the collar.
“I wanted a drink but got completely transfixed by Aljaz and Janette,” wrote on impressed fan.
Another shocked fan wrote: “Jeanette and Aljaz HOLY S**T what a masterclass.”
And a third added: “It’s a good job they’re married. That was something else Aljaz and Janette. Brilliant.”
The pair have been together since 2009, tying the knot in 2017, and consistently avoided the infamous ‘Strictly Curse’ despite both being stars of the show.
But the couple recently revealed they almost split up before joining Strictly.
While she prepared to jet back to LA, Aljaz was going to return to Slovenia.
Speaking on the Sliding Doors podcast, Janette confessed: “The thought of doing the whole long-distance thing made it hard for us. We were very scared about what was going to happen to our relationship.”
But in a twist of fate, Strictly producers spotted them while watching the Broadway production, and asked them both to audition for the show.
The professional dancer shared: “They called me first and asked me to join the show, I didn’t scream but my face said it all. Within 5 minutes they called him [Aljaz] straight after.
“It was a dream come true. Getting Strictly Come Dancing was the most incredible thing, not just for my career but for my personal life and marriage with Aljaz because if it wasn’t for Strictly, I don’t know if we could have worked through the long-distance thing.”
In April, Janette confessed that lockdown had seen herself and Aljaz fall in love with each other all over again, with the pair previously discussing their hopes to start a family.
She shared at the time: “We always wanted to have a baby, but 2020 has definitely made me say to myself: ‘You know what, Janette, it’s never going to be the perfect time but it’s always going to be the right time’.
“As a woman who’s a dancer, my body is my job so it’s scary to make that decision about the perfect time to start a family.
“I always thought there would be a perfect month and year, but what 2020 has made me realise is that perfect time is never going to come along.”
