Strictly Come Dancing favourites Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec have been celebrating.

The dancing duo, who are expecting their first child, took to Instagram to share their joy at their first time co-hosting BBC's Morning Live, which Janette has been presenting since 2021.

Aljaz shared some snaps from the experience, including one of his and Janette's names on their dressing room door, along with the caption: "Never forget the first one they say! A proper pinch-myself moment co-hosting with my @jmanrara on @bbcmorninglive today. #chuffed #grateful".

In her own post, Janette shared some photos of herself and her husband speaking to former EastEnders star and Strictly contestant Nina Wadia.

"A little bit of @aljazskorjanec and I together for your morning viewing pleasure on @bbcmorninglive," she wrote. "What a fun show for us to co-host together! We loved it! Can you tell?!"

Fans shared their excitement for the couple in the comment sections, with one even suggesting they get their own show: "You two need your own tv show!!! Adored seeing you host together this morning, hoping we can see it again some time soon."

Last month, Janette and Aljaz revealed they had been planning IVF treatment after trying for a baby, but got a happy surprise in December 2022 when Janette took a positive pregnancy test.

"I know IVF can be really strenuous on a woman's body and there is no guarantee it will work," Janette said. "To know that this little miracle just came from a wonderful night we had together is amazing.

"I think the baby decided to make Mum and Dad panic a bit before saying: 'Ok, fine, I'm coming now.'"

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
