Strictly Come Dancing former professionals Janette Manrara and Aljaž Škorjanec have announced the exciting news that they are expecting their first baby together.

In an interview with OK!, the couple revealed that they had been trying for a baby for some time but had been unsuccessful and were planning on trying IVF treatment. However, they were surprised by Janette having an inkling something was different one day and a positive pregnancy test confirmed their "little miracle", who is due to arrive in late summer.

"I was beside myself. I feel like I've been thinking and dreaming about this moment for so long. We were preparing for IVF mentally and physically and then it was just a relief to finally have that positive test. I have so much respect for any parent that goes through IVF, not just for what it puts them through physically but mentally too," Aljaž said.
