Strictly star HRVY and married dance partner Janette Manrara cuddle up as they leave rehearsals

STRICTLY Come Dancing's HRVY was seen cuddling up to his married dance partner Janette Manrara as they left rehearsals last night.

The pair looked incredibly cosy as they exited the London studio and made their way to their chauffeur driven car.

HRVY, 21, had one arm tightly wrapped around the 36-year-old pro as she nestled under his shoulder.

He wore a grey jumper and tracksuit bottoms, as well as a protective face mask, and carried a rucksack on his back.

Janette was wrapped up in a black winter coat and the pair looked happy and relaxed as they strolled to the car.

The dancer, who is 15 years her celebrity partner's senior, is married to fellow Strictly pro Aljaž Škorjanec – who she is currently living apart from.

The Slovenian hunk is paired with Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo this series, and he and Janette made the sacrifice to live alone so they could each form a support bubble with their dance partner.

One person from each couple had to do this for this year's Strictly so that they don't have to socially distance from each other, with a single-person household able to become an extension of another.

Janette and Aljaž tied the knot in 2017 after a two-year engagement and have been together for nine years in total.

Meanwhile, HRVY is currently single – but BBC bosses were concerned about him finding romance with competitor Maisie Smith and breaking social distancing rules.

The pair had excited fans after being caught flirting on social media with cheeky comments on one another's posts.

HRVY had also teased romance as he called the 19-year-old actress "lovely and beautiful", saying that he was "excited to see how things blossom" between them.

An insider told us that producers are keeping a strict eye on them to ensure they don't breach social distancing rules with a romance.

The source said: "Maisie and HRVY are being monitored by the producers after it’s become clear their connection could easily lead into a Strictly romance.

"They’re both young, single and hot and the thought is that the two of them could bring the other cast into risk if they break the guidelines and get closer.

"They have both been told, as have the rest of the cast, that kissing is off limits. Usually the Strictly cast are very tactile. Not in 2020."

However, HRVY and Janette have blown the judges and viewers away with their chemistry on the dancefloor, with the pair shooting to the top of the leaderboard in the very first week as Motsi Mabuse admitted she was tempted to give them a 10 already.
