The Cuban dancer revealed to fans that she would be performing in the Strictly Come Dancing final this weekend. The 38-year-old admitted she “begged” bosses to let her dance in the spectacle.
During Thursday’s instalment of It Takes Two, Janette revealed why she’d recently visited Vicky Gill from Strictly Come Dancing‘s costume department.
Janette asked Vicky, who was also on It Takes Two: “Shall we fill everyone in on the secret?
“So everybody, if you’re tuning in at home, I will be dancing in the Strictly final, get in!
“I begged and begged and they couldn’t turn me away.”
This is the first year Janette has taken on the role of presenter on It Takes Two.
