Zoe Ball is to co-present Strictly Come Dancing again this weekend, it has been confirmed today.
This will be the third week in which the ‘It Takes Two’ host takes the reigns alongside Tess Daley on the live Saturday and pre-recorded Sunday programmes on November 15 and 16, after Claudia Winkleman’s daughter was involved in a Halloween-related accident.
The BBC confirmed today that Winkleman would not be heading to the Tower Ballroom for Strictly’s Blackpool special, and that Ball would be co-presenting with Tess Daly once again.
Ball has been well-received on the show, with many viewers praising her presenting style.
Meanwhile, the Winkleman family issued a statement last week in which they thanked “NHS doctors, nurses and staff” for looking after 8-year-old Matilda
“She is having the best care possible and we are hopeful of a full recovery,” they added.
