They will now perform at the Opera House on April 12, 2022, instead of April 9 this year.

Aljaž said: “We are devastated to have to postpone for a second time what we truly believe is our best show to date. However, everybody’s health and safety comes first, so we know it’s absolutely the right decision to make. Equally, we are thrilled audiences across the UK will still get to see our amazing show next year, by which point we all hope the pandemic will finally be behind us.”

Janette added, “Like all performers, we are very much looking forward to the moment when we can all get back on the stage and put on a real show for everyone. It will be a memorable and emotional moment for both the cast and audience that’ll be worth waiting for. In the meantime, stay safe everybody.”
