Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed a surprising connection to Strictly Come Dancing star Viscountess Emma Weymouth. During Tuesday's It Takes Two, the new co-host dropped a huge bombshell – he revealed that he performed at Emma's wedding! Speaking to the 33-year-old and her pro partner Aljaz Skorjanec, Rylan told viewers that he needed to be "upfront and honest" about something, before revealing that he had been a part of Emma's 2013 wedding to husband Caeawlin Thynn. "I performed a Spice Girls megamix at your wedding!" Rylan exclaimed as a picture of the pair was shown on screen. "It's when my teeth were just put in!"

During an exclusive shoot and interview with HELLO! magazine earlier this month, Emma revealed her excitement at being paired with Aljaz. "I knew that I was going to get a tall boy, because I'm 5ft 8", but every time I talked about it I felt nervous," said Emma. "I'm really thrilled they've put us together. Aljaz is a brilliant, hardworking dancer and I'm so excited to be taught by somebody who has got such incredible experience."
