Please welcome to the DISH dining-room floor… Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara!
For eight years, this Strictly Come Dancing husband and wife team waltzed across our TV screens, with the adoring eyes of the nation upon them. Having both taken the decision to step away from Saturday nights, Janette now co-hosts Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two with Rylan, and Aljaž has been working on their brand-new stage show.
You can catch the couple on their tour, A Christmas to Remember, where they will be dancing to songs from the golden age of Hollywood as well as Disney classics. Tickets are on sale now.
Angela prepares a one-pot paprika chicken & orzo bake, with peppers, onion, garlic and black olives - all the flavours of a Cuban dish to honour Janette’s heritage. And to satisfy Janette's obsession with bananas, Angela serves a maple and cinnamon banana dessert with walnuts.
In this episode we learn what Aljaž and Janette are like in the kitchen, hear how the couple ended up living at Craig Revel Horwood’s house and the real reason behind Aljaža’s decision to leave Strictly.
Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.

We can’t all have a Michelin star chef in the kitchen, but you can ask Angela for help. Send your questions (and especially any Christmas dilemmas) to firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll try to answer in a future episode.
