The dancer was forced to separate from Janette due to the current working conditions of the show, meaning they now can’t see each other until they’re booted off the competition.
This is because each contestant has formed their own social bubble with the dancers to help stall the spread of Covid-19.
Joining Christine Lampard on today’s episode of Lorraine alongside his celebrity partner Clara Amfo, Aljaž talked about having to live apart from Janette.
‘I think it’s a small sacrifice that most of us pros had to make,’ he insisted. ‘Some have kids they’re not going to see for a while.
‘We’ve been together for over 10 years and as she would say, sometimes it’s good not to see each other for a while.’
Janette opened up about being away from her husband during Saturday’s launch show.
‘I miss him terribly,’ the 36-year-old told host Claudia Winkleman.
‘But we’re doing what’s best for the show. I’m so excited to start with HRVY. We have the same excitement, we’re going to bounce off each other really well.’
Sarah Jones, the executive producer of the show, revealed that due to restrictions and quarantine rules currently in place if any of the celebs fall ill, they will have to be ruled out in order for the show to continue safely.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she explained: ‘Unfortunately, if you receive a positive test, that means that you wouldn’t be able to continue in the competition.
‘Obviously, according to government guidelines, if you receive a positive test, they would have to isolate for two weeks, and that would unfortunately rule them out of the show.’
Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV and Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7.25pm on BBC One.
