Janette Manrara, 37, has taken to Instagram to set the record straight after her departure from Strictly Come Dancing’s line-up of professional dancers left fans speculating that she could be pregnant. It comes after the dancer, who is married to fellow Strictly star Aljaz Skorjanec, was announced as the new host of spin-off show It Takes Two after Zoe Ball quit the programme.

Ever since, fans have been wondering whether her break from the Strictly dance floor could be due to her and Aljaz’s plans to start a family together.

Janette sparked speculation about her baby plans once again this evening after she took to social media to tease some “big news” in view of her 437,000 followers.

However, after being inundated with responses asking if she is set to announce she’s pregnant, Janette broke her silence on the matter.

Janette teased her news by sharing a video of herself in a car alongside a GIF which read: “BIG NEWS.”

She then offered her followers a chance to predict what her announcement could be.

While posing for a snap using a new Instagram filter, Janette added a question sticker, which encouraged fans to answer: “But can you guess the news?”

After seemingly noticing replies asking whether she is expecting a baby, Janette denied the rumours.

She wrote: “For the record, I’m not pregnant…


“But I do LOVE this filter!!”

Fans previously took to Twitter following news of Janette’s new presenting role on It Takes Two to share their theories about what was behind her career move.

One Strictly fan penned: “How long until we find out Janette is pregnant?! Happy that she’s the new #ItTakesTwo host! #Strictly.”

Another added: “this time next year janette’s gonna be pregnant i’m calling it.”(sic)

A third wrote: “Wants to know if Janette is pregnant! #strictly.”

A fourth commented: “Oooh Janette leaving #Strictly to host ITT! Wonder if there could be some baby news on the horizon?”

A fifth gushed: “Janette hasn’t said she’s leaving as a pro so there must be a reason she isn’t dancing and is doing ITT instead? 

“Omg if she’s pregnant I’m gonna cry with happiness.”

However, others disagreed with the rumours, with one fan commenting: “Why does everyone assume Janette is pregnant? 

“Maybe she is but just maybe she thought this was her opportunity to get into presenting as it’s something she’s always wanted to do.”

Janette and Aljaz have previously opened up on their hopes to have a baby together in the future.

The Cuban-American dancer recently said: “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.”
