Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Former pro speaks on show return ‘Things happen for a reason’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV


Chloe Hewitt, 23, first made her debut on Strictly Come Dancing in 2016 but departed the BBC series after two years on the popular dance show. Now the brunette beauty has revealed in an exclusive interview with on whether she’ll be making a return to the dance floor. Speaking at Here Comes The Girls press night, Chloe admitted she would certainly “give it a thought” if the producers asked her to come back to Strictly. She said: “You know it’s weird. I don’t know. I think it would be a spur of the moment. How I would feel in that moment in time.

“I’ve had no bad memories of Strictly. Even for me leaving it wasn’t a bad memory. It was me moving on and I had the most incredible two years.”

She continued: “I couldn’t thank them enough for taking me under their wing and taking care of me.”

The professional dancer is currently headlining her own tour alongside Strictly stars Dianne Buswell, 29, and Amy Dowden, 27.

Chloe admitted she feels if it wasn’t for her not being asked to come back to the BBC competition then the opportunity of performing on tour may not have been possible.

The dancer divulged: “But sometimes things happen for a reason. And I think like this [Here Comes the Girls] wouldn’t have possibly come along if I was still on Strictly.

“That’s the way I always think. So for me, it’s a positive thing. So if I was asked to come back [to Strictly] I would definitely give it a thought.”

Meanwhile, the Strictly judging panel recently lost a member after Darcey Bussell, 49, announced she was leaving the show in a Twitter post last week.

In a lengthy official statement, she admitted it had been “a complete privilege” to be a part of Strictly and admitted she was not leaving “because of any upset or disagreement”.

Darcey joined the show in 2012, replacing Alesha Dixon.

Earlier this year, Russian favourite Pasha Kovalev, 39, announced in a Twitter post he was exiting the show after eight years.

The dancer said “it’s time” to leave the show and that he is ready for a “new challenge”.

The star issued a statement in view of his 147,000 followers and thanked his “incredible partners” on the series.

He was partnered with Love Island star Caroline Flack in 2014 and former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts last year.

Meanwhile, Chloe spilled on her UK tour called Here Comes The Girls.

Speaking about the show, she said: “I’ve never done a theatre tour before. The only tour I’ve ever done is the Strictly tour, which is in arenas.

“So when I got [Here Comes The Girls] it was so out of the blue, I was like, ‘Count me in’. The girls are so great. I’ve loved it from the moment we got started.”
