Why did Rylan Clark step down from presenting Strictly It Takes Two?
In a post to fans, the star revealed in April: “After 4 fantastic years, it’s time for me to hang up my glittery jacket and say goodbye to It Takes Two.
“I’ve had the best time hosting the show alongside Janette and Zoe and I can’t thank the amazing team enough for always putting on a great show.
“I’ve been welcomed in the strictly family and will firmly hold that title dear to me.
“The time has come for me to pass on the baton to someone else and explore what else life has for me.
“Thank you Strictly you will always have my heart…and my dancing feet. Ry x”
Some said that this statement suggested that he was planning on taking to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom himself as a celebrity contestant.
