Announcing the news on The One Show, she explained that appearing on the show was one of her "favourite parts" about performing on Strictly.

The dancer also revealed that the seed of her hosting the show was first planted back when she appeared as a guest in 2013.

"I remember meeting Zoe eight years ago when I did the first It Takes Two sat down and thinking 'This is the coolest job ever, you get to sit down, talk about dancing, make people feel good and celebrate their successes on the show' and I did think one day 'I want to sit down and do that,'" she admitted.
