Expressing her enthusiasm for the role, Fleur shares, "I'm absolutely thrilled to officially become part of the Strictly family! After having an incredible time on the show last year, I can't wait to engage with the celebrities each week on It Takes Two. As a devoted Strictly fan, I'm eager to provide exclusive behind-the-scenes insights. I understand exactly what the new batch of celebrities will be going through. It's an incredibly enjoyable experience, but also challenging! Hopefully, I can offer them support and a friendly face along the way. I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity and eager to get started!"

Eve Winstanley, Executive Producer for BBC Studios and Strictly It Takes Two, expresses her excitement, stating, "Fleur is an excellent addition to the Strictly It Takes Two family. Having been in the contestants' shoes, she can offer the best guidance, tips, and insights on what to expect. We can't wait for audiences to see Janette and Fleur together; they make a dynamic duo."
Alex McLeod, Commissioning Editor for BBC Daytime, adds, "Fleur was a fan favorite on Strictly Come Dancing, having navigated the competition and reached the final. The latest contestants are in safe hands with her, as she will provide reassurance, as well as even more fun and excitement on It Takes Two."
