Speaking to HELLO! magazine about their plans for their marriage earlier this year, the couple said that the part of the big day that they were looking forward to most was, unsurprisingly, the first dance.

'We haven't decided what the first dance will be yet, but I think it will be something really simple, pretty and intimate,' Aljaz explained. 'It's just going to be a lovely day dedicated to celebrating our love.'

'I'm confident that people will dance at our wedding, that's for sure!'

'I have my dress and it's going to be beautiful,' Janette added. 'I don't think I'm Bridezilla though. For me, the day is more about having people that we love there than the small details; I'm not really that fussy. We're hoping that all the Strictly gang will be there.'
