Strictly Come Dancing professional Janette Manrara, 37, has opened up on her heartache after saying an emotional goodbye to her sister, Lesly Marie Manrara, after they spent five days together in Madeira, Portugal on holiday together. The star, who is returning home to the UK today to reunite with her husband Aljaz Skorjanec, 31, admitted that she was feeling “absolutely devastated” before boarding her plane at the airport, as she was unsure when she would be able to see her sister again amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Sharing her struggles in view of her 434,000 Instagram followers this afternoon, Janette said in a video: “Hi team, I’m at the airport now and I just said goodbye to my sister.
“Absolutely devastated because I don’t know when I’m going to see her again.
“It was so nice that we got to spend these five days together and it was the most incredible five days, I wouldn’t change them for the world.”
Despite having an incredible time on her first holiday after lockdown began to ease, Janette went on to issue a warning to her fans about travelling during this uncertain time.
She explained: “The only red flag I would raise to everybody that is travelling is that the airlines are still really figuring out how everything works.
“And because every country has different requirements, and different tests, or different confirmations, or different forms to fill out, it can get really confusing, even for the airlines.
“So just make sure if you are travelling that you give yourself more than enough time in case something needs to be done while you’re at the airport.”
Speaking from experience, Janette said she was relieved that she gave herself plenty of time ahead of her flight out from London, as she also encountered some issues.
The dancer continued: “Thank God that I did because there was a couple of things from my airline and my sister’s airline that were a bit of a mess, tap into not great.
“But besides that, just be careful.
“But on a positive note, Trending Travel, she was on my beck and call, the woman that I worked with there was ready to help me.
“Any questions, any concerns, any issues with the hotel, even with the flights – there was so much trouble with flights and stuff and she was able to sort it for me.

“Trending Travel, just thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to have such a wonderful holiday with my sister and to MB Tours for the amazing experiences we shared here in Madeira.”
It comes after both Janette and her husband Aljaz shared their sadness over the already delayed Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals Tour getting cancelled again due to the pandemic.
Dates in 2021 have now been removed and replaced with new dates in England, Scotland and Wales in 2022.
Janette wrote in a heartfelt post: wrote: “I am truly grateful to have this holiday to distract me from the heavy sadness I have in my heart that this is not going forward…
“I have missed dancing more than I can ever explain, but unfortunately hard decisions have been made by higher ups.”
She added: “I apologise on my part for not being able to dance for you all. It was out of my hands.
“I know the universe works in mysterious ways so I trust in it and pray to be dancing again for you all soon.”
Janette’s other half Aljaz posted an Instagram live video this evening to instruct fans to wear face masks on public transport to ensure that theatres can open again soon in light of the news.
