Rylan Clark-Neal will be joining Strictly Come Dancing’s It Takes Two as a co-host with Zoe Ball.
Zoe has hosted the Strictly spin-off show by herself since 2011, when she took over from Claudia Winkleman.
A tweet from the BBC Strictly Twitter account announced Rylan’s appointment, writing: “Joining Zoe Ball as the co-host of It Takes Two is Rylan!
“We can’t wait to welcome him to the #Strictly family when the show returns on @BBCTwo in the autumn.”
However, the news left Strictly fans divided, with some saying they will no longer watch the show.
One person wrote: “I like Rylan, but why does she need a co-host? She’s always done a great job by herself…”

Another said: “But why? She’s so good at this job. And he hasn’t been a contestant so, again, why?”
A third follower said: “Noooo terrible new, well i can honestly say i have watching ITT from day one but no more, thanks for completely ruining my strictly experience #angry #upset.”
A fourth simply stated: “Well I won’t be watching that then…”
Other Strictly viewers were excited by the addition of Rylan to the Strictly family.
A person wrote: “Welcome Rylan. Must admit I would have liked to see you take part in the show first. Like your radio show so ITT will deffo be fun this year.”
Another follower commented: “I think this is a great decision, I love Zoe @ZoeTheBall and think she’s doing a great job, maybe it has something to do with her early morning stint, @Rylan you’ll be amazing, don’t listen to the haters! “
A third said: “This is amazing news! I love Rylan!”
The man himself revealed his excitement as Rylan tweeted: “So excited to finally say i’m thrilled to be joining Team @bbcstrictly and can’t wait to get my big old teeth stuck into hosting #ItTakesTwo alongside the gorgeous @ZoeTheBall . Thanks for trusting me with another one of your babies! Can’t wait to get going!”
