Grimsby’s Joanne Clifton will be trying her hand at presenting on Strictly Come Dancing’s sister show It Takes Two – which sadly means she will not be dancing with a celebrity this series.
It has been announced the 31-year-old Waltham dancer and sister of Kevin has been signed up as It Takes Two’s dance expert, where she will appear alongside Zoe Ball.
This means Joanne, who joined the cast and partnered Scott Mills last autumn, won’t be dancing with a celebrity this year.
She will, however, be taking part in group performances and will also perform in the Strictly Come Dancing Children in Need and Strictly Christmas specials.
Joanne said: “So bloomin’ excited about my new role on Strictly Come Dancing, can’t wait to join the It Takes Two team and work with Zoe and the gang who are all ace! This is a childhood dream come true, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”
She also took to Twitter this afternoon to share her excitement.
She said: “Guys! I’m a PRESENTER !!!! I’m so excited !!!! No celeb BUT exciting new role which I’ve always wanted to do!”
