Following Brendan Cole's fire disaster whilst he was on tour with his dance troupe, we can't believe another incident involving fire has affected Strictly professional dancing couple, Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec. 

Currently on their Remembering Tour, they were forced to cancel their Glasgow show as a fire broke out next to the Pavilion Theatre in Glasgow where they were performing. Aljaz, 28, admitted he was "gutted" about having to call off the performance.

34-year-old Janette wrote on Instagram: "Glasgow, we are deeply sorry that due to a fire occurring in the building next door to our venue, @RememberingTour company are unable to perform for you tonight! We are extremely sad as Glasgow is always one of our best crowds. Hope to see you next year! #SoSorry #WishWeCould#NextTime"

Aljaz said on his Instagram: "We are very sorry that tonight's performance in Glasgow has been cancelled due to a fire next to the venue. The whole @RememberingTour is gutted because the Glasgow crowds are always one of the loudest!"

The blaze destroyed a nightclub next to the Pavilion Theatre, but the surrounding buildings have been deemed unsafe for public use following the fire damage. Theatre bosses said in a statement at the time: "After waiting to hear all day, we have just been advised by Glasgow City Council Building Control that we will be denied access to the theatre for around two months."

The Pavilion is said to have suffered massive smoke damage and ash infiltration. Speaking this week, theatre manager Iain Gordon told the Herald Scotland newspaper: "At the moment, the real fear is the massive repairs that will have to be carried out. All the seats are likely to need replacing, as the ash from the smoke will have seeped into the foam."

Thankfully, Janette, Aljax and all of their dancing troupe are safe and hopefully, they will be able to return to Glasgow with their Remembering Tour in the near future for all the fans that sadly missed the show.
