The former dancing pro was joined by her fellow presenter, Rylan Clark Neal, who introduced his new co-star, saying: "It feels so good to be here with a new series, and a new leading lady, ladies and gentleman. When I found out you were joining the show, and we had a meet-up and got to know each other, I'm so thrilled you are here. Are you enjoying it?”

Janette replied: ”I am so excited. It's finally happening. We are here.” Previously chatting about her new gig on The One Show, she said: “One of my favourite parts of doing Strictly has always been to sit down on that couch and just chat away. it's the most fun. I remember meeting Zoe, gosh that was eight years ago now when I did the first It Takes Two sit-down, 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’. I did say, 'One day I would love to do that', and it's here, here we are!”
