Although Aliona is not part of the full series of Strictly this year, she was back to perform the magnificent Jive with Jay McGuiness on the Launch Show!
Aliona: I had an amazing seven years, Jay helped me raise the glitter ball a second time. I’ll miss it, but good luck to everyone – I’m sure it’ll be an amazing series.
Jay: Support each other, root for one another when you watch each other and enjoy it. I remember Caroline Flack said you won’t experience anything like it again – and she was right.
