Strictly fans have been given their first look at Rylan Clark presenting
The This Morning presenter has joined the spin-off series alongside Zoe, who has been presenting the after show since 2011.
In a hilarious promotional clip, Rylan does his best impression of Zoe as he dons a short blond wig to mimic the radio host.
Impression: Strictly fans have got their first look at Rylan Clark presenting Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two with Zoe Ball
The trailer opens with someone who appears to be Zoe getting her hair and make-up done.
As she fixes up her locks while looking in the mirror with her face hidden, a production assistant enters the room and says: ‘Two minutes ’til we’re live’.
While Zoe’s voice can be heard saying, ‘thanks babe’, Rylan is revealed to be the person sat in the chair.
Turning around, he runs his hands through the wig and says to Zoe: ‘Do you like my new Strictly look babe?’
Fun: Both presenters mimic each other in the clip, with Rylan donning a blonde wig and Zoe sporting sparkling white teeth
Not to be outdone, Zoe responds: ‘Two can play that game’ and opens her mouth to reveal sparkling white teeth, poking fun at Rylan’s veneers.
Zoe does a dramatic turn to the camera and says: ‘This is Strictly: It Takes Two’.
Rylan, not impressed with her impression of him, rolls his eyes and says: ‘Shut up’.
The new trailer comes after Rylan recently admitted he almost turned down It Takes Two because he thought bosses were asking him to be a contestant on the main show.

He said: ‘Originally I thought they were asking me to be a contestant – I thought “no, I’m not doing it. I can’t go back into a competition!”
‘But when they said it was presenting I had to ring Zoe [Ball] to make sure I wasn’t taking her job! She said “no, I’m cutting my time back a bit – I want you to do it!”
‘I’m such a massive fan of Strictly, so I was overwhelmed when I got asked to be a host on It Takes Two. It came completely out of the blue!’
He said: ‘Originally I thought they were asking me to be a contestant – I thought “no, I’m not doing it. I can’t go back into a competition!” ‘
Rylan will host the show on Monday and Tuesday, Zoe will host from Wednesday to Thursday, and the pair will co-host on Fridays together.
‘We’ve not done anything together yet, so I don’t know how it’ll play out,’ Zoe added.
‘When you get a new telly husband or wife, you have to get used to their patterns, when to interject… Will we be Eamonn and Ruth? Will we be Phil and Holly? Obviously when I say that I mean I’m Phil… Rylan is Holly!’
Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two airs on Monday at 5:15pm on BBC One for two weeks and then at 6:30pm on BBC Two.
Co-hosts: Rylan will host the show on Monday and Tuesday, Zoe will host from Wednesday to Thursday, and the pair will co-host on Fridays together

The Strictly Come Dancing live shows are back this weekend, and of course that means the return of the sister show It Takes Two as well!
This time Zoe Ball has got Rylan Clark Neal as her co-host, and we can’t wait to see these two in action. We always love to see what Zoe wears on the show, but for now, we’re coveting her statement blazer in these promo pics!
It’s by Dolce & Gabbana and the silk fabric and emerald colour makes for a very striking combination. There’s a matching pair of trousers available too if suits are your thing, but this jacket would look great styled with a simple black camisole and skinny jeans too.
