Zoe Ball 'set for Strictly: It Takes Two return?'

Share article:

Zoe Ball looks set to return to "Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two".

Professional dancer Ian Waite has hinted the presenter is likely to return to front the "Strictly Come Dancing" spin-off show for the seventh year running after confirming to him on the latest series that she would be keen to host the programme again in 2018.

Ian - who fronts segment Waite's Warm-Up, in which he reviews training room footage of the couples and suggests improvements - said: "Last year, or the year before last, Zoe was saying that it was going to be her last year because it was the sixth year that she was doing it.

"So, during that series last year I said, "Are you going to do it again next year because you did say this was your last year?"

"And she said, "Oh no, I've had so much fun, I'm going to do it next year."

"So if she does it, which I think she will, I'll be doing it with her. I'm looking forward to that actually, it'll be good. Our seventh year."

Ian hopes Zoe will return to the programme because he "loves" teaming up with her.

Speaking to Debbie McGee - who made the final of the ballroom and Latin series last year - on her "The Debbie McGee Show" on BBC Radio Berkshire, he added: "Well, I'm kind of beholden to Zoe really, because if Zoe does it, she won't do it without me.

"She said "I'm not going to do it without you" and I love working with her and everybody loves our bit on "It Takes Two"."

Should Zoe and Ian return to "It Takes Two" they could be rubbing shoulders with Coleen Rooney, who is said to be in talks about appearing on the next series after pulling out of the contest last year when she fell pregnant.

A source said: "Coleen deferred her place last year after falling pregnant but has the option of taking it up this year - and talks have begun to make that happen."
