Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman have extended their stay as hosts of hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing. The news comes as the pair signed a fresh six figure salary contract for the next two years.
The duo have hosted the show together since 2015. Tess Daly has been ever-present on the show having hosted since the first series in 2004 - up until 2014 she hosted alongside Sir Bruce Forsyth.
Claudia Winkleman made the step up from presenting ‘It Takes Two’, the spin-off midweek show to Strictly Come Dancing. The pair have apparently made themselves unmoveable from the position of hosts in the nine years they’ve now been together.
Speaking to a national newspaper , a source said the BBC “love” having the two hosts of the show. They added the broadcaster is also proud of having two women host the show.
According to previous reports, the pair are currently on a deal worth over a combined £300,000. This new contract is set to be an increase.
