Strictly Come Dancing stars Dan Walker and Helen Skelton are teaming up for a new travel show.

The presenting duo are set to reunite after fronting Dan & Helen's Pennine Adventure last year, which saw the pair explore the rural landscapes of Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Details on where the new show will take place have yet to be confirmed.

Walker took to Instagram on Wednesday (June 5) to confirm the release of the upcoming Channel 5 series and revealed that filming is about to begin.

"Watch this space for more details. We'll let you know when you can watch us wandering around together as soon as we can (champagne optional)."

Fans were quick to share their excitement at the new show in the comments section, with many expressing how much they enjoyed last year's series.

"Loved the last programme, so pleased you're gonna do another," one person wrote, with another adding: "Excellent news! We loved the last series!!!" alongside a heart emoji.

Walker notably took part in the nineteenth series of Strictly with professional partner Nadiya Bychkova in 2021, while Skelton danced her way to the final with partner Gorka Márquez in 2022.

The former Blue Peter presenter is also set to host another travel series this year, titled Lost and Found in the Lakes, which will explore the beauty of the Lake District.

The series will consist of 15 episodes, with Skelton leading a team of experts in search of precious misplaced items across the World Heritage Site.

"Thrilled to be a part of this series filmed in my beloved Lake District," the presenter previously said in a statement.

"It's a chance to showcase the area's natural beauty and by reuniting people with their lost treasures we have a chance to share some heart-warming stories."

Strictly Come Dancing will return later this year on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
