If you’re reading this then you’ll want us to cut to the chase. You got it.
Here are three legit ways to meet Aljaz Skorjanec.
1. Get audience tickets for BBC Strictly Come Dancing
Pros: It’s getting hot in here
Along with 749 other audience members, you could be lucky enough to get front row seats. If so, you’ll be able to drink him in as he dominates the dance floor and then lingers for the Judges’ critique. Who knows? You may even get to loiter close by as he and Kate Silverton film their reaction to that night’s results.
Cons: Blink and you’ll miss him
As BBC Strictly Come Dancing audience tickets are allocated by a random draw and millions of people apply for them every year, there’s no guarantee you’ll be successful. Now, should you be successful and Aljaz gets knocked out of the competition (god forbid) before the Saturday you’re in the audience, then you may only get a fleeting glance of him anyway. If you’re really lucky he’ll be the ‘chosen one’ to walk either Tess or Claudia down the iconic Strictly steps. Or he may even whizz past you during a Group Dance.
2. Hang around outside Elstree Studios early Saturday mornings
Pros: Standing room only
We’ve heard Borehamwood’s not bad this time of year. A bit chilly maybe, but on the upside you’ll get plenty of fresh air. Ooh and you might meet other adoring fans that you can chat to endlessly about how you’d love to meet Aljaz.
Cons: If your name’s not on the list, you’re not coming in
We’re guessing there’s a lot of security in place to keep avid fans from doing just this. So, you may get the tiniest glimpse of Aljaz as he arrives by car. He may even wave, but will you have a clear view through the sea of like-minded fans? We’re guessing the chances of a selfie with the man himself are slim.
3. Book a Donahey’s Weekend Break with the Stars of Strictly in 2020
Pros: A sure thing
As Aljaz will be appearing at our weekends you’ll have plenty of opportunities to spend the weekend with him at either a 4* or 5* hotel. Sound good? That’s because it is. Not only can you take a dance workshop with him, enjoy guaranteed front row seats to watch him and Janette perform an amazing showcase, but you can also ask him questions in our fun Q&A sessions. But that’s not all; you can even take as many photos of him as your phone will store in our Red Carpet Photo Calls. But best of all, there’s also a MASSIVE chance that you’ll just bump into him in the hotel. No, we’re not kidding.
So, if you want to meet Aljaz, be taught to dance by Aljaz and up your selfie status to the max, you need to book your places at our Weekend Breaks asap. Because once other fans get wind of this foolproof way to meet their Strictly idol, the few remaining places will be snapped up quicker than BBC Strictly Come Dancing audience tickets.
That’s your Christmas present sorted then. You’re welcome.
