What time is Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on TV?
For the first time in Strictly history, It Takes Two has been bumped from BBC 2 to BBC 1 – for the first two weeks, at least.
When it returns on Monday, 23rd September, It Takes Two will start with a slightly earlier time slot of 5.15pm on BBC 1.
“The role came out of nowhere,” he told RadioTimes.com. “I think everyone in the industry sort of knew Zoe was either going to leave or step back a bit, because of [her role at] BBC Radio 2 and I know that there was loads of chats with presenters putting themselves forward for it.”
The show will now see Clark-Neal front on Mondays and Tuesdays, while Ball takes the reins on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Friday’s hour-long special will see both presenters at the helm.
Gethin Jones will also return as a roving reporter for the show, speaking to our celebrities as they train.
“It’s going to be really, really fun and for me it sort of fills that void that I’ve got about having that companion show,” Clark-Neal said.
Having previously filmed at the Television Centre and The London Studios, the latest series will filmed in h Club London – the private members club for people in the creative industries. It is located in Covent Garden, London.
