Strictly Come Dancing: Should Zoe Ball be a permanent host?

Claudia Winkleman is returning to the dance floor tonight which means it's time to say farewell to It Takes Two presenter Zoe Ball

Claudia Winkleman is set to make a return to Strictly Come Dancing‘s ballroom tonight, after missing the last three live shows to be by her daughter‘s bedside following an accident at Halloween.


It goes without saying that we all are delighted to have the funny, floppy-fringed presenter, who replaced Brucie in September, back on our telly screens, but her return does mean one thing: no more Zoe Ball. And we don’t know about you, but we were rather enjoying Ball’s presence on our Saturday nights. 

Over the last three weekends, the It Takes Two presenter has showcased her easy, smiley demeanour by punning like a pro and sharing jokes with celebrities and dancers alike. We’ve become rather fond of her – and we’re not the only ones…

It’s got us thinking, have we, like these fans suggest, found a presenting dream team in Claudia Winkleman AND Zoe Ball? Or do you think Zoe and Claudia would be too similar? Maybe we need Tess to balance out the kooky jokes and statement fringes?

Perhaps there’s room for three great female presenters on the show?

Do you think Ball has a place as a permanent member of the Strictly Come Dancing presenting team? 


Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 7:00pm on BBC1
