They were partnered up during Strictly Come Dancing’s 2019 instalment.
And Emma Weymouth reunited with her former professional dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec for lunch on Wednesday, alongside his wife – and fellow Strictly star – Janette Manrara.
The Marchioness of Bath, 35, Aljaz, 31, and Janette, 37, shared numerous fun snaps and clips of their al-fresco lunch via Instagram, with the lavish meal taking place outdoors on the grounds of Emma’s 9,000-acre Longleat estate.

Showing off their impressive spread, Aljaz panned his camera over an outdoor table piled with an enormous plate of Bolognese and vegetables. The friends also enjoyed cocktails.
Taken aback by Emma’s efforts, Janette looked wide-eyed at the food before her, with Aljaz joking: ‘@JManrara’s face when @EmmaWeymouth invites us over for lunch.’
Emma slipped into a chic dark blue mini-dress for the occasion, layering her frock beneath a khaki jacket.
Janette kept warm by slipping on a white zip-up jacket, while her husband looked dapper in a black jumper, slinging his coat over the back of his chair.

As of April 12, lockdown rules have eased, meaning groups of up to six are allowed to socialise in parks and private gardens.
Emma’s husband Ceawlin Thynn, who is the Viscount of Bath, did not appear in any of the videos shared, however, Emma’s friend James Carney was in attendance.
Emma’s husband Ceawlin, 46, is trustee of the Longleat Charitable Trust along with his father.

Ceawlin is heir to the enormous estate, with Longleat famously being the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa.
The happy couple share two sons together, John, five, and Henry, three.
Earlier this month, Janette revealed she fell in love with Aljaz ‘all over again’ during lockdown.
Speaking to TOWIE’s Bobby Norris and journalist Stephen Leng on FUBAR radio, she explained: ‘We’ve kind of fallen in love with each other all over again in a very different way.’
The brunette beauty added that she and Aljaz had barely argued at all during the pandemic. ‘We argued a handful of times in the last year,’ she continued.
‘I remember talking to friends and other couples and they’re like, “You’re very lucky. It’s not the case for many people.”’
Last month, Janette credited Strictly with ‘saving’ her and Aljaz’s marriage.

Speaking to The Sun earlier this month, Janette revealed she was ‘going back to Los Angeles’ while Aljaz was considering a return to his native Slovenia when they were offered their Strictly roles.
She explained: ‘Strictly Come Dancing, it saved us. It saved us really, in every way. We were going to try the long-distance thing and see what happened.
‘So when we got that phone call to join Strictly it didn’t only give us stability workwise, it saved our relationship.’
The talented duo tied the knot in 2017 after getting engaged two years prior. They have been permanent members of the Strictly line-up since 2013.
