New It Takes Two Co-Host

The BBC has announced today that a new co-host will be joining Zoe Ball during the 2019 series of Strictly. I can reveal that it is none other than…………..

Rylan


Rylan is no stranger to hosting a companion show for a reality TV series having hosted Big Brother’s Bit On The Side during the Channel 5 era of Big Brother

I’m going to duck for cover here but I’ll ask you anyway. What do you think of the news? As always you can let me know in the comments or over on Facebook or Twitter

Don’t forget I’m still running a competition where you can win a Google Home Mini Speaker. Full details of how to get involved can be found HERE

We may be in the off season but operating this site and providing you with the latest Strictly news still costs me money in hosting and other operating costs. If you want to help out with these you can do so at THIS LINK or use the button below

Dame Darcey Bussell Quits The Judging Panel

After 7 series judging Strictly, Dame Darcey Bussell has decided to hang up her judging paddles and will not be on the panel during the 2019 series of Strictly

Speaking to the BBC Dame Darcey had this to say about her exit: “It has been a complete privilege for me to be part of Strictly, working with such a talented team. I have enjoyed every minute of my time and will miss everyone from my fellow judges, the presenters, the dancers, the musicians, the entire back stage team, and especially the viewers of the show, who have been so supportive.

“I am not leaving because of any upset or disagreement at all, I am just stepping away to give more focus to my many other commitments in dance, after seven truly wonderful years that I can’t imagine having gone any better.

I know I will miss being part of this unique show and the fact that it celebrates dance is something I am so passionate about. I hope that I may be very lucky to be asked back again one day”.

It is not clear yet whether Dame Darcey will be replaced on the panel or if a panel of 3 will judge the 2019 series
