Alongside his pregnant wife Janette, Aljaz was asked about his exit from Strictly Come Dancing.

Host Lorraine Kelly said: “You’re still very much a part of Strictly, I know you’re not in it all the time Aljaz…”

Aljaz replied: “Maybe one day again.”

There’s dancers, there’s judges, there’s hosts. So you never know!

Lorraine then asked: “If you could squeeze it in, that would be lovely.”

Aljaz added: “Oh yeah there’s so many spots. There’s dancers, there’s judges, there’s hosts. So you never know!

Lorraine teased: “Judging, that would be something…”

Aljaz said: “Imagine that,” to which Lorraine admitted: “I would like that.”

Dancer Aljaz teased: “Me too, me too.”

When did Aljaz leave Strictly?

At the time of his exit, Aljaz said in a statement: “The show has given me an opportunity and freedom to create and express myself in front of millions of people every weekend for the last 9 years.

“The love and support I got from the team of producers was second to none.”

He added: “I have lots of exciting stuff planned that I will fill you in on soon. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Meanwhile, away from dancing, Aljaz and Janette are expecting their first child together.

Janette said: “I turn 40 later this year and the NHS offers really good services to women under 40. The doctor said that as soon as I got my period we would start injections, but my period never came.

“I know that IVF can be really strenuous on a woman’s body and there is no guarantee it will work, so to know that this little miracle just came from a wonderful night we had together is amazing.”
