Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara announce tour dates for their new Christmas show

F

ormer Strictly Come Dancing professionals Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara have announced a new Christmas show which will tour across the UK later this year.

A Christmas To Remember will see the married couple joined by a cast of dancers and singers as they perform festive favorites from Hollywood’s Golden Age to Disney Christmas classics.

Along with song and dance routines, the family-friendly show will feature lavish costumes and extravagant sets.

The 13-date UK tour begins in Portsmouth on November 25 and ends in Newcastle on December 18, including additional matinee performances in Southend on December 3 and London on December 12.

Other cities included in the tour are Manchester, Belfast, London, Cardiff and Glasgow.

Manrara, 38, said: ‘We want to invite everyone to join us for the fanciest and shiniest Christmas party you will ever be invited to.

“We’re going on a magical journey, celebrating the 12 days to Christmas with great songs and fabulous routines, with our amazing cast of singers and dancers.”

Skorjanec said: “We will be sharing Christmas stories from our childhood, exploring what we love most about this special time of year.

“We will rejoice and dance with all the joy of what Christmas really is.”

Earlier this year, the 32-year-old dancer announced he was leaving Strictly Come Dancing after nine years on the hit dance show.

Manrara previously stepped down from her role as a dancer on the show in 2021 to become co-host of spin-off show It Takes Two, which she will return to when the series launches this month.
