This year, we do love each and every couple. We had a feeling that week 7 would bring a shock exit. After all it was this time last year when we bid farewell to Laura and Giovanni who we thought had a number of weeks left on their journey.
Tonight, we were met with a shock dance-off that proves that nobody is safe and everyone needs our votes, when Aston and Janette met Mollie and AJ in the dance-off. Sadly, in the end it was time for Aston and Janette’s Strictly journey to come to an end.
We thought Aston and Janette were true contenders in the series and it is with great sadness they have left the show. We’re not going to blame the judges or the public for them going home, but would like this post to become a tribute to them to remember how amazing they have been.
Over the past 7 weeks, Aston and Janette have wowed us with some wonderful performances including that Salsa in Week 2 which made us wonder how amazing their showdance could have been, that near perfect Cha Cha Cha in week 3, the waltz which gave us goosebumps and that perfect Paso Doble last week. Their dances have set the standard for the series really high and given everyone something to aim towards.
Janette’s choreography (as always) has been truly outstanding this series and Aston performed all the steps he was given with style, panache and perfection. We’d have loved to have seen him reach the final, but all good things must come to an end, and their journey on Strictly is one of them. They will be sorely missed next week *grabs a new box of kleenex* 😢😢 We’re pretty sure they will be friends for life and that Aston will keep dancing.
Normally on these posts we’ll put a collage of their best bits, but given the number of wonderful dance moves they performed, it seemed apt to give them their very own video full of their best bits. Janette and Aston, here are your best bits:
