Paul and Hanna held a special Valentine's Day event at Paul's Notting Hill studio in London, where they performed together for the very first time since getting back together.

I have a few videos here, but as they were taken on a phone they aren't the best quality and are also pretty dark. Hope you can make them out okay!

In short - it was the best night of my whole life, they danced even better than I've ever seen them before.

Everybody there absolutely LOVED it, and I feel so honoured and privileged to have been there.

It will be for shows only, unfortunately. I so wish they would compete, even if only just for one last time. Everyone seemed to agree that they were dancing better than ever after their break, so I think it could be very surprising and rewarding for them to give it a go . . . can only hope, anyway!

It was absolutely unbelievable, I've never seen such perfect dancing before, truly inspiring. I think the main factor was how close they were . . . you could literally feel Hanna's skirt brush you as she passed, it was mindblowing!

I'm not too sure how many shows they plan to do all in all, but with Hanna still competing in Exhibition, sadly I don't think it will be very many. She will be lecturing with Victor at Blackpool again this year but they haven't received their topic yet, and also they're working on three new numbers at present, a new pointe routine, a jazz routine and something completely new for Blackpool as well.

Very much looking forward to all of this!
