Fleur recently replaced Rylan Clark as presenter on the Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two.

Fleur, who competed with professional partner Vito Coppola in the 2022 series, now presents the show alongside professional dancer Janette Manrara.

Rylan quit the show earlier this year in a heartfelt message 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.”
