New presenter confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing

Claudia Winkleman has been confirmed as Bruce Forsyth’s replacement on Strictly Come Dancing!

The presenter will join Tess Daly as they take on next season’s hopefuls in the popular TV show.

Claudia spoke of her delight about being chosen for the role: “I have loved Strictly since the moment it appeared on our screens and I am honoured and thrilled to now be a part of the Saturday night team … Working alongside Tess is always fantastic and I can’t wait to spend the weekends with her, our amazing dancers and the greatest judging panel on the planet. Sir Bruce is a living legend and we’ll all miss him very much.”

Tess also spoke of her excitement to be working so closely with Claudia: “I’m so pleased I’ll be working with Claudia – she’s long been part of the Strictly family and I’ve loved doing the Sunday show with her.”

We’re really looking forward to seeing this duo on our screens soon!
