Former Strictly Come Dancing dancer  Aliona Kavanagh (maiden name, Vilani) has announced she's pregnant!

Aliona won the last series of Strictly with Jay McGuinness but this year wanted to concentrate on her new marriage with Vincent Kavanagh.

The star took to Twitter  to share the "wonderful news."

"Just want to share our amazing news! Vin & I are pregnant and we are sooo excited to have our little miracle!!!"

Fans rushed to account to wish her congratulations. One follower wrote, "Congratulations lovely lady, if you're half the mother you are dancer, you'll be amazing."

We're delighted for the parents-to-be.


In quite a shocking turn of events, Aliona Vilani has quit BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing after seven years of being a professional dancer on the show. 

Aliona won the competition in last weekend's final, yet took to Twitter today to announce her departure. 

The blonde beauty shared a picture of her and Jay on Twitter and captioned it, "Going into Strictly Come Dancing Series13, I decided that no matter what would happen, it will be my last one."

And in another tweet she added, "After 7 years on Strictly Come Dancing, as my finale, this has been my best Strictly experience ever by a long way!"

The dancer previously won in 2012 with another boyband singer, Harry Judd from McFly.

And as she says 'goodbye' to Strictly, she says 'hello' to Florida. Aliona posted a snap of her and her husband at the airport today before their long haul flight (putting those Jay romance rumours to bed). 


After their victory on Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, the cast and crew had a party like no other.

But in the early hours of the morning, Jay McGuiness and Aliona Vilani shared a few moments of intimacy and we can't help but think if they are a couple behind all the bright lights and cameras.

Leaving the after-party, Jay and Aliona walked down the street holding hands, before Aliona stopped and wrapped her hand around Jay's face. 

The pictures look like they're a full-blown couple, right in the honeymoon stage, but social media has been asking about Aliona's husband, Vincent Kavanagh. 

On Saturday night, when Jay was announced as the winner, millions watched as the boyband singer pressed his face up against the professional dancer and the pulled her into his arms.

She responded by stroking his face and planting a kiss on his cheek. 

Only a few hours before he won the competition, Jay was interviewed and told Aliona, "There is so much I want to say. I'll just say that I love you to pieces."

And after a big hug, Aliona told him, "I love you, too."

Hmm, only time will tell with this one ladies. 


While Jay McGuinness put on a stunning performance on Strictly Come Dancing last night, he did manage to make quite a big blunder in the middle of it. 

The former bandband member scored a respectably 37, despite DROPPING his dancing partner, Aliona Vilani on her head.

However, she didn't seem to mind, since their Doctor Who-Charleston number went down a storm. And the judges might as well have turned a blind eye too.

Craig told the dancing duo afterwards, "Jay, that was brilliant [but] I didn't know whether you meant to drop Aliona, or [whether it was] a style choice."

And Darcey agreed, saying, "It was energetic, it was alive, it was full of style. That was odd at the end but you recovered well."

Jay and Aliona performed the routine to the track Doctor Jazz from musical Jelly’s Last Jam, but good scores from the judges wasn't the only surprise that Jay got. 

Two of his former The Wanted bandmates – Max George and Tom Parker – sat in the audience and cheered him on all the way. #Bromance.
