Abbey Clancy was revealed as one of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing contestants last week and it seems like viewers of the BBC show won’t be the only ones keeping a close watch on the stunning WAG.

The blonde beauty was partnered with new Strictly pro Aljaz Skorjanec on Saturday’s launch show and as she heard the news, she ran and launched herself into the hunk’s arms in front of Tess Daly and Bruce Forsythe.

Janette Manrara is Aljaz’s girlfriend and revealed that she will be monitoring the pair during rehearsals and she’ll make sure that they don’t get too close, or up to any funny business off screen

Janette has issued a stark warning to Clancy and told The Daily Star:

“I’ve got my eye on her. She’s a beautiful model with a great personality.”

We imagine that Abbey’s footballer hubby Peter Crouch will be doing the same and as hard as he tried to smile his way through Saturday’s show as he watched from the audience, considering the amount of relationships that have met a messy end after one spouse takes part in Strictly or Dancing On Ice, he must be a little worried about the future.

The couples get very personal an intimate with each other on a daily basis, which can often spark a bit of heated passion in practice sessions. However Abbey has tried her best to put Peter and Janette’s minds at rest, insisting:

“Everyone is being professional and I just want to do well. He’s a great teacher.”

Janette will be spending plenty of time on the show and behind the scenes anyway, so she’s well placed to keep a beady eye on the pair, she she’s joined the pro troupe too and will be partnered with British fashion designer Julien MacDonald.

She’s pretty happy with her new partner and tweeted yesterday saying:

“And so my beautiful partner is @JulienMacdonald!! Couldn’t be happier! Let the muscle pain begin!!! Haha! 😆”

“So, been checking my twitter & WOW!! So happy to get so many lovely tweets! Thank you guys for all the support for @JulienMacdonald & I! 😊”

Her boyfriend did his own gushing too and posted:

“Sooo happy to be doing my first season on @bbcstrictly with beautiful @OfficialClancy!! THE ‘A’ TEAM Exciting times! :))”
