Zoe Ball doesn't want a full-time presenting role on 'Strictly Come Dancing' because she'd have to wear a dress and is happier fronting the BBC One show's spin-off 'Strictly: It Takes Two'
Zoe Ball doesn't want a presenting role on 'Strictly Come Dancing' because she'd have to wear a dress.
The former BBC Radio 1 DJ - who stood in for Claudia Winkleman for a few episodes during the last series of the BBC One show - currently presents the spin-off show 'Strictly: It Takes Two' and has insisted she is more comfortable there because she can wear trousers.
She told the Daily Express newspaper: "It was in the worst circumstances that I stood in for Claudia but everyone was very welcoming. It was great to be able to do that for a mate and Tess [Daly] was so supportive. I think 'It Takes Two' is my home and Tess and Claudia are the main hosts. But they know I am on call should they need me.
"They do such a great job the two of them together. And I like being on 'It Takes Two', it reminds me of my 'Live & Kicking' days. Anyway, I'm much more comfortable in trousers."
The 44-year-old television presenter recently hosted the 'Strictly Come Dancing' live tour and previously admitted she was glad she could front in and continue her "obsession" with the show.
She said at the time: "I am thrilled and excited! As the saddest 'Strictly' geek, frankly I am obsessed.
"This is just a delight because I get to prolong my obsession just that little bit longer."
