Strictly Come Dancing has confirmed the presenting schedule for the new series of spin-off show It Takes Two.

Janette Manrara and new co-presenter Fleur East both appeared on Monday's (September 25) launch of the BBC Two series to lay out when fans can see them throughout the series.

Fleur will be kicking off the week by hosting the post-elimination show on Mondays and then is back on Tuesday nights through the finale in December. Janette will then take over for Wednesdays and Thursdays before both hosts take turns switching off on Fridays.

"We have so much to look forward to over the next 12 weeks," Fleu told viewers.

Fans got a treat during the launch show as Fleur and Janette took turns presenting, as they were joined by Layton Williams and pro partner Nikita Kuzmin, Annabel Croft and pro partner Johannes Radebe, Angela Scanlon and pro partner Carlos Gu as well as guest choreographer Joanne Clifton.

Fleur has joined Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two for the current series, following Janette's previous co-presenter Rylan Clark stepping down in April.

"I’m so excited to officially join the Strictly family," Fleur said at the time. "I had such an amazing time on the show last year and so cannot wait to be talking to the celebs each week on It Takes Two.

"Being a Strictly fan, I’m excited to get all the behind-the-scenes exclusives on the show. I know exactly what the next lot of celebs will be going through. It’s an incredibly fun experience, but it’s tough! Hopefully, I can offer them a bit of support and a friendly face along the way. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and can’t wait to get started!”

It's a busy time for Fleur because she has also joined the cast of BBC school drama Phoenix Rise as music teacher Miss Meesha for seasons three and four.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday nights on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights from September 25 on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
