Strictly Come Dancing’s spin off show It Takes Two, presented by Zoe Ball, will return to BBC Two screens to co-incide with the return of the ballroom battles.
The beeb have revealed there will be some changes to the latest outing of the show with a weekly one hour Friday evening slot in front of a live studio audience as well as live broadcasts from the home of Strictly Come Dancing at the Elstree Studios and SCD professional dancer Joanne Clifton joins Karen Hardy, Ian Waite and Robin Windsor as It Takes Two’s dance experts.
“I can’t wait to get back into the It Takes Two Glitterdome, my home from home, and dust off the sparkly shoes and jumpers and start grilling our glorious strictly Class of 2015 daily on their trials and tribulations and tangos – and what a line up so far! I’m thrilled that my gorgeous dance partner Ian Waite and our Queen of Choreography Karen Hardy will get to welcome Joanne Clifton and Robin Windsor to the bosom of our beautiful It Takes Two family. No rhinestone will go unturned. I love this job. I’m counting down the days…” – Zoe Ball
In addition to the regular daily half hour slice of Strictly news, fans are set to be delighted with a weekly one hour Friday show, filmed 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.
It Takes Two returns on weeknights on BBC Two from September. Zoe Ball is also celebrating 30 years of Children’s BBC next month as the CBBC channel marks three decades since the beeb introduced the strand
