Janette Manrara is no stranger to flaunting her body in a range of sequined dresses and glamorous outfits, but her latest look is truly to die for.
The 38-year-old star, who quit Strictly Come Dancing after starring in the 2020 series, has recreated one of the most iconic Bond girl moments in film history.
Fans of 007 will remember the scene in Dr. No from 1962, in which actress Ursula Andress emerges from the sea in a white bikini with a large shell.
However, when Sean Connery’s Bond approaches her, Ursula’s character, Honey Ryder, quickly draws her knife, feeling threatened.
Janette decided to recreate the memorable moment for her Remembering the Oscars Dance tour with husband Aljaž Škorjanec.
Originally scheduled for spring 2020, the tour has been postponed twice due to the pandemic.
But now the 40-date tour, which will see Aljaž and Janette present Oscar-winning songs, dance, films and stars on the red carpet, is now touring the UK, concluding on Saturday 7 May – including a residency at London’s Peacock Theater from 2 May. May.
Neither Janette nor Aljaž will compete as professionals at this year’s Strictly Come Dancing after the Slovenian dancer followed in his wife’s footsteps and left the show last month.
The 32-year-old teased in a statement on social media that he had “a lot of exciting things planned for the future” following his departure from Strictly – which he joined in 2013.
And as Janette broke her silence on the big news, she said: “I can’t express the sadness in my heart to see it [Aljaž] say goodbye to Strictly.”
However, she said at the same time there was “so much joy” in her heart for what he brought to the show – which he won in 2013 with model Abbey Clancy, 36.
Janette continued, “I have admired him from the day I met him for his passion for dancing, but most of all for his kindness towards everyone he meets.”
She said that as his wife and best friend, she “couldn’t be happier knowing he made so many smiles” while she was on the show – both viewers and those behind the scenes.
Janette said: “He makes every single person he meets feel absolutely special; ask each of his partners over the years.” She said he’s what the show is about.
Remembering the Oscars is now touring nationally, concluding with a residency at London’s Peacock Theater from May 2nd to 7th.
