Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Janette Manrara is leaving the dancefloor to become presenter of spin-off show It Takes Two.

She made the announcement on BBC's The One Show on Thursday evening and will share It Takes Two presenting duties with co-host Rylan Clark-Neal.

Manrara is taking over from Zoe Ball, who announced her It Takes Two departure earlier this month after 10 years as presenter.

"It's a dream come true to become part of the It Takes Two team!" said Manrara. "Although it's impossible to fill in the shoes of a legend like Zoe Ball, I hope to make her and all of the Strictly fans proud.

"I will miss dancing on that iconic dancefloor weekly, but [am] forever grateful to continue being a part of the Strictly Come Dancing family!"

Manrara had been part of the Strictly professional dancer line-up since 2013. Her husband, Aljaž Škorjanec, is also one of the professional dancers on the show.
