Hewitt was with Strictly for just two years, during which time she was not paired with a celebrity partner for a full series, although she did dance alongside TV presenter Gethin Jones in the 2016 Christmas special.
She’s not the only pro departing the series ahead of its return this autumn – fan favourite Brendan Cole has also been axed.
Meanwhile, Italian Graziano Di Prima, South African Johannes Radebe and four-time winner of the Italian Dance Championship Luba Mushtuk have all been added to the roster.
