    Strictly Come Dancing spin-off It Takes Two presenter Janette Manrara arrived on set with a sparkly suitcase and train driver's hat, ready to leave the studio for Blackpool.

    Janette told viewers to get their tickets ready for the fictional 'Blackpool Express' train, as she almost took off and left her presenting gig on the BBC Two show.

    "It's nearly time to board the Blackpool Express, I've got my suitcase ready as its just over 48 hours til we're returning to the iconic Blackpool tower ballroom, get your tickets ready!" she told fans.

    Saturday night's Strictly will return to Blackpool after a two year break from the venue due to Covid. This year, the contestants will get the opportunity to welcome Strictly back to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

    Coronation Street's Kym Marsh and CBBC actress Molly Rainford will join fellow celebrities Hamza Yassin, Will Mellor, Tyler West, Fleur East, Ellie Taylor and Helen Skelton at the northern venue to compete for a place in next week's show and for a step closer to the Glitterball trophy.
