Janette Manrara: Strictly pro shares cryptic Instagram saying ‘this is getting harder’

Janette Manrara jokes about her ‘new Strictly partner’

The Strictly Come Dancing professional, 37, posted the cryptic image on Instagram, just days after enjoying lockdown in the snow with husband Aljaz Skorjanec, 30. The upload was of a professional drawing of a boy, horse and fox and a quote, which said: “‘This is getting harder,’ sighed the boy, ‘Then every step you take is a bigger victory’.”

Absolutely love this

Janette posted it with the caption “Absolutely love this”.

The inspirational quote and sketch the professional dancer posted comes from the book, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Macksey.

Fans were quick to echo Janette’s praise for the book, commenting: “I love this book so much,” and: “It’s the most uplifting book I have!”

Strictly pro and close friend Kristina Rihanoff also said: “I have this book too. Isn’t it just wonderful.”

Macksey’s tale of four unlikely friends sold more than one million copies in 2020 and became the longest-running non-fiction hardback of all time.

Inspirational drawings from the book are also being used by the NHS as internal screensavers and as pictures on the walls of hospital wards.

The artist shared the same sketch as Janette earlier this month, with the caption: “I was talking to a friend about this today.

“I left the drawing in a bus stop. Hope your weekend is ok.”

Just days ago the Strictly dancer hinted that she had a new dance partner, before jokingly revealing him to be a snowman.

Showing off her snow creation in a video to her fans, Janette joked: “It’s a bit stiff.”

Janette went on to upload snaps of the snow day spent with her husband, saying: “We played in the snow today! Felt like a kid again!

“I think this is EXACTLY what we all needed to make us smile.”

Wearing a pink and black quilted coat and matching grey bobble hat, the pictures showed Janette playing in the snow with Aljaz.

Last year the Cuban-American dancer was paired with 21-year-old YouTuber and singer, HRVY, for the 18th series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Janette and HRVY left Strictly fans in uproar after it was revealed that they would be the only couple tackling the “notoriously difficult” Rumba routine.

Despite making it to the final, the couple lost out on the Glitterball trophy to winners Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse.

Taking to Instagram, Janette commented: “What an EPIC night! I could not be prouder of everything that HRVY and I accomplished together on @bbcstrictly this year!

“2020 has been really tough, but #Strictly brought back so much joy to everyone’s homes on Saturday nights!

“As for my @hrvy I’ll miss our daily jam sessions to music, making bagels for you in the mornings, our warm ascends, and our warm downs!”

“Haha! It was an absolute pleasure to be in ‘boogie wonderland’ w/ you all these weeks!!”(sic)
