Janette is taking over from Zoe Ball, who left the series this year after a decade as host.

Aljaz hit social media last night (June 10) and shared a shot of the pint-size star on his profile.

He wrote: “My @jmanrara is the new host of #strictlyittakestwo with @rylan. Good luck to you!!!

I can’t wait to sit on this sofa!

“Can’t wait to sit on that sofa … @bbcstrictly Ps.” All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to make them come true – Walt Disney. “

A second said, “Great news, Janette. Congratulations, I can’t wait to see you on this sofa! “

In addition, a third wrote: “Congratulations @jmanrara! I will miss her incredible dancing though. “

However, others were quick to point out that the couple wanted to raise a family.

How did Strictly fans react?

On Twitter, one said: “Delighted for you. This may not be the reason for moving, but I know she and Aljaz are interested in raising a family. If that’s the motivation then this is the perfect way to do so and stay in the Strictly family. It will go well with Rylan. “

Another added, “I think she is the absolutely perfect person to take on Zoe! I also thought about the fact that she and Aljâz mentioned that they were going to have a family.

“It’s the perfect way to still be involved in Strictly, but if she wants kids, she can.”

It comes after Janette recently revealed her baby plans to Loose Women.

She said, “I think what Aljaz and I discovered from the initial lockdown and split is how much we really are a team and that we are more than ready if we decide to have kids.

“Because we really, really love and support each other, and I think for any new parent or person considering becoming a parent, the most important thing is that mom and dad have that kind of oneness and that they really feel that they will do it, tackle it together. “
