Aljaz Skoranec and Janette Manrara, professional dancers on the hit BBC One show, were due to perform at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury on April 27, but have had to shelve their tour until March next year because of the pandemic.

But Salopians will be able to join them for a streamed performance of their dance spectacular titled Remembering the Oscars.

This one-hour special will see Aljaž and Janette roll out the red carpet to celebrate the greatest award-winning songs, films and dance routines from the golden ages of Hollywood through to Disney family favourites and beyond.

They will be joined by a cast boasting some of the UK’s best dancers and singers on a specially constructed stage, as they dance their way through a dazzling array of bespoke and original musical arrangements of over 25 songs from classic films.

In a joint statement, the pair said: “We feel awful having to postpone our tour for a second time due to the pandemic, but we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to film some of the highlights from the show. We were devastated that another year would go by without sharing what we truly believe is our best show to date. Hopefully this will give our audience and fans a taster of what is to come next year. We love and miss you, and hope you enjoy the show!”
