Rylan-Clark Neal has returned to hosting duties on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two and it looks like he’s already getting on famously with his new co-host.
The 32-year-old was out enjoying drinks with professional dancer Janette Manrara and told fans “it takes two babe” as he shared an adorable snap of the pair.
The Essex-native is only just returning to presenting duties following a hiatus after revealing his marriage had broken down.
However, he now appears to be in fine form as he shared a video of him and Janette in rehearsals for the BBC 2 show.
“So it’s It Takes rehearsals today – but who’s that?” Rylan joked as he filmed himself, panning the camera round to reveal the co-star.
“Zoe, you look well different!” the 32-year-old added, as professional dancer Janette joked: “Oh stop it, thanks babe.”
Janette, 37 is married to Strictly star Aljaž Škorjanec and replaces Zoe Ball on the show.
Earlier this month, Rylan returned to his Radio 2 show after a five month break following his split from husband of six years, Dan Neal.
The loveable star decided to take a step back from his career after he confirmed he and former Big Brother star Dan parted ways in June.
“I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage,” he said in a statement at the time, adding that he was taking time away from work because he was “not in a good place at the moment and am seeking help.”

“I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to say thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time,” Rylan’s statement added.
However, in August, it was reported that the couple may be working on their marriage after Dan’s car was spotted parked outside the home they used to share in Essex.
An insider told The Sun that everyone wanted the pair to work things out, and that the estranged couple were “in a better place” following their brief split.

However, recently Rylan shared a cryptic Instagram post which seemed to be about “people taking advantage” of his kind nature after his five-month break and marriage split.
The TV star and Radio 2 presenter took to social media on Wednesday where he shared a quote about people’s patience being tested.
“What’s wrong with being too nice? People will always try to take advantage of it until you aren’t nice at all,” the quote read.
Rylan posted the words on his Instagram Stories with no comment.
It’s not known what the TV personality was alluding to with the mysterious post, but his fans were left concerned by his strange outburst.
