Robin Windsor may not be back as a pro dancer for this series of Strictly Come Dancing but he is joining the It Takes Two team.
Alongside Karen Hardy and Ian Waite, Robin will take part in studio and filmed reports for the Strictly spin-off show.
Robin said, “I’m thrilled that I’m returning to the Strictly family and I am really looking forward to bringing lots and lots of fun to It Takes Two this year – it’s going to be an amazing series! I can’t wait for it to get started.”
It has also been announced that pro dancer Joanne Clifton will be a regular dance expert on It Takes Too. She will also appear in the Strictly Come Dancing Children in Need and Strictly Christmas Special.
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…”
It Takes Two will air half an hour daily shows and on Friday night’s the show will be an hour long in front of a live studio audience. Each Friday, a familiar Strictly face will report live from Elstree Studios with exclusive backstage access to studio rehearsals ahead of the weekend’s main show. They’ll catch up with the celebrities, professional dancers, wardrobe department and all the team to get the latest news as it happens.
Zoe Ball will return to host It Takes Two when it returns this September.
