Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Zoe Ball named permanent presenter of Strictly spin-off, It Takes Two
Zoe, who originally took over presenting the show as a replacement for Claudia Winkleman when she went on maternity leave, is said to be “ecstatic” at landing the job full time.
It Takes Two returns to BBC2 in September, however, Claudia will be back to present the results show on Sunday evenings on BBC1.
A BBC source told the paper that both ladies were “very happy” with the arrangement, adding, “I don’t think Zoe had to wrestle Claudia for it…
“She’s still got a baby and two other children – so her life is very busy.
“They are both well-loved members of the Strictly family.”
Earlier this year, Zoe joked that she was hoping Claudia would become pregnant again so that she could continue to host the spin-off show.
She laughed, “I’m hoping that Claudia will have another baby and need more time at home.”
She added, “It’s such a joy to be part of that programme. I think if I’m not, I would cry. Or have a tantrum.
“I’d quite happily sit there with a pin and stick the diamante bits onto the costumes if I could just hear the gossip.”
