He posted a snap of himself from the show with a statement that read: "After four fantastic years it's time for me to hang up my glittery jacket and say goodbye to It Takes Two. I've had the best time hosting the show alongside Janette and Zoe and I can't thank the amazing team enough for always putting on a great show.
"I've been welcomed into the Strictly family and will firmly hold that title dear to me. The time has come for me to pass on the baton to someone else and explore what else life has for me. Thank you Strictly, you will always have my heart and dancing feet."
Taking to Twitter to wish him well, one person wrote: "During the last season the hubby and I chatted about how you'd really grown into the show and made it your own over the last few years. We will miss you. Good luck," while another person added: "Ooooh. My family won’t be happy mate. They love this show." Another person joked that he could even take part in Strictly now, adding: "So you can be a contestant on this year's series?"
It will certainly be a busy time for his former co-star Janette, who will be welcoming a new co-presenter as well as expecting her first child with husband Aljaz Skorjanec. Speaking about telling him about the happy news, Janette explained: "I said, 'Oh my gosh, I think I'm pregnant, what do I do?' And she said, 'First of all, calm down and second of all, congratulations. What has Aljaž said?'
"And I said, 'I haven’t told him; he's in the living room!'" Finally, she handed her husband her positive pregnancy test. "We cried and hugged; it was quite a moment," she said.
