Janette, who had been a professional dancer on Strictly, called It Takes Two her dream gig but admitted that she would be sad to no longer take part in the competition with a professional partner.

Speaking on The One Show, she told Alex Jones: ‘I will not be dancing. I don’t want to well up because I have been welling up a lot today, but that has been the hardest part of accepting this amazing honour to join It Takes Two.

‘It’s the realisation that I will not be on that legendary Strictly dancefloor any more. But I feel that this is most beautiful and natural progression.

‘I am still a part of the Strictly family, I am still going to be seeing my fellow pros all the time and I will keep dancing, as they say. I will find a way to keep dancing.’

Although Janette won’t be dancing, four additional professionals have been added to the bill.

The new faces are Kai Widdrington, from the Irish version of Dancing With The Stars, former Let’s Dance Germany professional Nikita Kuzmin, reigning South African Latin champion Cameron Lombard, and The Greatest Dancer winner Jowita Przystal.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
