ALIJAZ SKORJANEC: We-- from day one, when we started "Strictly Come Dancing" as professionals, we always find it the best and not the easiest. But I feel like the results were the best when we worked together. When we choreographed every single dance pretty much that we did with our celebrities through the years, there was something of both of us in those dances.

Prior to Janette sort of venturing in them in the presenting waters and so beautifully smashing her first chance on "It Takes Two," there was not many of us pros that sort of had the-- how would you call it? The courage to do something like that. And I was so, so, so happy and proud. I still am whenever I watch it. I watch it every night. And then, on the other hand, you know, I was, for the first time, doing "Strictly" as-- on my own as a professional.

So I do-- I did miss her a lot. And it did feel as a bit of a different job. So now, when I just get to be a fan and make sure that I get to catch every single "It Takes Twp," I feel like I'm even more supportive than I was before.
