Helen Skelton will reportedly take over hosting Strictly’s It Takes Two.

The news comes after Rylan Clark stepped down from hosting the show after four years.

He confirmed the news last week.

“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.

Former X Factor star said he will always be close to his Strictly family.

“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.”

Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton is likely going to take over following Rylan’s exit.

She made it to the Strictly Come Dancing final last year and was a huge hit with viewers.

According to The Mirror, “Not only is Helen a very experienced and popular presenter, she captured Strictly fans last year with her warmth and charisma.”

The source added, “The pro dancers all know her and as a former contestant, she knows what the celebrities are going through.

Insiders also said she will be the perfect fit.
