‘I hope that wasn’t his leaving speech!’ Strictly’s Aljaz Skorjanec fuels rumours he’s QUIT series after being eliminated with Sara Davies


Aljaz Skorjanec fuelled rumours he’s gearing up to quit the show after he and Sara Davies were eliminated on Sunday.   

The pair lost the dance-off to Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin and Aljaz said he would ‘miss everything about this show’ after they were sent home.

His comments came after it was reported that both Aljaz and fellow professional dancer Oti Mabuse are planning to step down from the show when the series ends. 

Aljaz, whose wife Janette Manrara stepped down from the show to host spin-off It Takes Two, told Sara: ‘You have been an absolute joy. A testament to hard work.

‘Thank you for letting me spend so much time, not just with you but with your family.

‘I’ve been so welcomed up north, it made me feel like I was back home in Slovenia actually because everyone was so lovely and friendly.

‘I’m going to miss you so much, I’ll miss dancing with you. I’m going to miss everything about this show. Thank you everyone, thank you for your support.’

Sara fought back tears following her elimination and told co-host Tess Daly: ‘I had no idea any of this was in me. It’s been a life-changing experience and one I’ve loved every second of.’

Aljaz said: 'I'm going to miss you so much, I'll miss dancing with you. I'm going to miss everything about this show. Thank you everyone, thank you for your support'

Several viewers took to Twitter to react to Aljaz’s statement, with one writing: ‘That speech from Aljaz worries me please don’t say that as a leaving speech’. 

Another viewer said: ‘I hope that wasn’t his leaving speech as he said I will miss Strictly.’

The tweets came after The Sun reported that Aljaz and Oti are planning on leaving the show – but have yet to tell BBC bosses. 

Their departure would be a big blow to the show as Oti is the show’s most successful pro having won twice, with Kelvin Fletcher and Bill Bailey.

Meanwhile Aljaz has one win under his belt – Abbey Clancy in 2013 – and is the longest-serving male professional still competing. 

Quitting? It comes after it was reported that both Aljaz and fellow professional dancer Oti Mabuse (pictured) are planning to step down from the show when the series ends

MailOnline has contacted Strictly Come Dancing for comment. 

Aljaž and his wife Janette put on a very amorous display following the filming of the Strictly results show on Saturday night.

Heading home from Hertforshire’s Elstree Studios in the back of a taxi, the married choreographers, 31 and 37 respectively, removed their face masks in order to pucker up for a sweet kiss.
