He will also have to sit out his Saturday Radio 2 show as he self-isolates.

Rylan Clark-Neal is set to miss two weeks of Strictly Come Dancing spin-off show It Takes Two after coming into contact with someone who was Covid-positive.

The presenter will also be forced to miss his Saturday Radio 2 show this weekend while he self-isolates.

Speaking on Twitter, Rylan said he had to quarantine after being in contact with someone “outside of work [who] has tested positive for coronavirus”.

However, he reassured fans he has tested negative for coronavirus himself.

Rylan wrote: “I am therefore now following the government guidelines and having to self isolate. I have sought a Covid test and thankfully that has returned a negative result.

“That does mean I will miss the next [two] weeks of Strictly: It Takes Two and my BBC Radio 2 Saturday show. I look forward to being back soon and wish all the couples good luck for this weekend.”

He later added: “I’d just like to add seeing some of your comments, I paid privately to have a test to make sure there was no immediate risk to my work bubbles. Stay safe x.”

Rylan joined the It Takes Two presenting team last year, sharing presenting duties with Zoe Ball, who reduced her workload after taking over the Radio 2 Breakfast Show.

It Takes Two airs weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
