The pair were enjoying a much-needed break before Ashley returns to her role as showbiz correspondant at Heart FM, and Janette prepares to front It Takes Two when the new series of Strictly kicks off next month.
Ashley has previously explained how she works hard in the gym to stay in shape and uses exercise as much for her mental health as she does for her physical wellbeing.
She said in a past interview with Coach magazine: ‘I love exercise; it’s not only for my physical health but it’s for my mental health so it’s very important to me.
‘Some people don’t think of dancers as athletes but that’s garbage. All-day sessions in the studio are hardcore total-body workouts.

‘I did ballet, tap, modern and lyrical – all different styles that tested my fitness and worked my muscles in different ways.’
Ashley relocated from Los Angeles to London nine years ago after the Pussycat Dolls went on hiatus in 2010.
She said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday’s YOU magazine in 2019: ‘If someone had told me 10 years ago that this would be my home and I’d be drinking tea and saying Brit things like loo and rubbish, I’d have been, like, ‘No way!”
Ashley told how she realised the UK was home after her beloved father Pat passed away in March 2018.
She said: ‘The passing of my dad made me see how many amazing friends I have over here, who tried to scoop me up.
‘But I thought, “Why am I trying to fight this LA-London thing when everyone here is so supportive?”‘
It comes after it emerged Strictly Come Dancing will have its biggest professional dancer line-up in history when it returns this autumn for its 20th series.
Four new pro dancers have joined the line-up, which means that 20 professionals in total are ready to bring their skills to the BBC show’s dancefloor later this year.
The four new world class dancers completing this year’s professional troupe are European cup winner Vito Coppola, Chinese National Champion Carlos Gu, former Under 21 British National Champion Lauren Oakley and Latin dance champion Michelle Tsiakkas.
They join the professional dancers already revealed for the upcoming series: Dianne Buswell, Nadiya Bychkova, Graziano Di Prima, Amy Dowden, Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Neil Jones, Nikita Kuzmin, Cameron Lombard, Gorka Marquez, Luba Mushtuk, Giovanni Pernice, Jowita Przystal, Johannes Radebe, Kai Widdrington and Nancy Xu.
Show favourites Alijaz Skorjanec, who is married to Janette, and Oti Mabuse both quit Strictly Come Dancing earlier this year.
