Aljaz Skorjanec 'hates' Sara Davies as Strictly star addresses working with professional

The pair have become really good friends since learning to dance together, with Aljaz becoming an honorary member of the Davies family.

To adhere to Covid protocols, the professional dancer has moved in with his celebrity partner but he and his wife, Janette Manrara, get to enjoy double dates with Sara and her husband.

Speaking on Loose Women, Sara said: “It’s been great for us. Janette has been coming up on a Monday so we can go out for dinner as the four of us.

“Last week we went for dinner, and last night I had these two, Janette and Aljaž, round for dinner at our house. We had way too many shots of Patron XO Cafe, you’re a bad influence there. It was not good when we had to wake up at 6am this morning dancing.

“I met him at the training room this morning like: ‘Ahhh, I’m still hanging!’ but we had such a laugh and you know what, Janette is such a firecracker. Her and my husband have hit it off as well, so it’s been brilliant spending time with the four of us.”
