The BBC star, who has appeared on the lifestyle programme since 2017, could be seen teaming up with Strictly Come Dancing's Janette Manrara over the weekend for a very special reason...

Posting on his Instagram stories on Sunday, Will could be seen learning some dance routines with the professional dancer to prepare for his first dance at his upcoming wedding.

The presenter captioned the video: "Thanks @JManrara for the help with my wedding 1st dance!" along with some dancer-emojis. Could Strictly be on the card for Will's future? We think he'd be a natural!

The presenter is gearing up to tie the knot after he and his fiancée had to postpone their nuptials last year as a result of the pandemic. Will also announced last week on his other BBC show, Morning Live, that their wedding is due to take place in a "couple of weeks".

Will is usually quiet about his personal life, but exciting wedding update comes soon after he shared a photo of his beloved on social media for the first time. Taking to Instagram Stories, the 36-year-old shared the rare snap of his partner - whose name remains unknown - in celebration of her completing her doctorate.

Meanwhile, Janette is no doubt loving being back dancing after recently announcing that she would not be returning to this year's Strictly Come Dancing competition as a professional, and instead would be taking over from Zoe Ball on the sister show, It Takes Two.

 Janette, who was announced as the new BBC Two presenter last month, will be joining Rylan Clark-Neal as co-host of the show, with the pairing being dubbed a "dream team".
