Strictly Come Dancing’s Janette Manrara has taken a well-deserved trip to Marbella with Pussy Cat Doll, Ashley Roberts - but has expressed feeling ‘mum guilt’ over leaving her baby at home.

Janette welcomed her first daughter, Lyra, in July last year with fellow Strictly pro Aljaž Škorjanec, and has gone on her first break since giving birth.

Janette and Ashley, who competed on Strictly in 2018, took a quick weekend trip to Spain - and posted a carousel of pictures to commemorate the fun time they had.

The pair shared snaps from glamorous nights out, to beach trips, to Janette putting on plasters on the side of the road.

Showing off pics from their trip, on social media Janette wrote: “A short but sweet weekend escape! 48 hrs of me time and sun in Marbella w/@iamashleyroberts is just what was needed. Sunshine and plasters, dinner, and face masks.

“Proper girlie time. There was definitely some mum guilt happening, but it’s important take time for ourselves too. Also, really missed spending time w/Ash. It was long overdue. Love you sis” followed by a few emojis.

Ashley responded: “Marbs wasn’t ready”.

Ashley posted her own series of snaps from the weekend with the caption: “48 hours in Marbs” followed by a strawberry and moon emoji. Janette then commented: “Love ya sis!”.

The two women posed in selfies in the lift in stunning mini dresses and their sunnies on. Ashley also posed in a green halter neck slip dress and took multiple pics of herself and Janette laughing and having a great time.

Fans rushed to their account to comment: “You wear some stunning outfits.” Another made a comment aimed at Janette: “Mums deserve me time too and your little girl will be loving having Daddy all to herself no doubt.”

A third wrote: “Girls time is the best time. Always need our besties so we can care for our life’s necessities”.

Janette and Aljaz met in 2010 while performing on Burn The Floor, they married in 2017 and announced the birth of their daughter in July last year.

They shared a black and white snap of themselves beaming in the hospital with Lyra cradled on Janette’s chest.

Ashley Roberts wrote at the time: "Lyra Rose is here!!! So beautiful!!! Love you!!!". Former

Strictly dancer James Jordan said: "So happy for you both. Sending love from the Jordans" while Oti Mabuse gushed: "CONGRATULATIONS. best news ever."
