Strictly Come Dancing 2019: ‘Never thought it’ Former pro reveals ‘out of the blue’ news

Chloe Hewitt, 23, first made her debut on Strictly Come Dancing in 2016 but departed the BBC series after two years. The brunette beauty has now revealed in an exclusive interview with all about the “moment I didn’t think would come”. The professional dancer spilled on the shock phone call she received when she was informed she’d be taking part in her own dance tour, despite no longer being a part of the BBC show. She commented: “Oh God! I didn’t think this moment was going to come. I think since being on Strictly and seeing all the pros have their own tours, I kind of knew that it could be a possibility. But I never thought that I’d get the phone call this early on.

“So when I did it was so out of the blue.”

Chloe is currently headlining the Here Come The Girls dance tour alongside her former Strictly co-stars Dianne Buswell, 29, and Amy Dowden, 27.

She admitted that once she knew who she would be working with on the show there was no way she could turn the opportunity down.

Chloe spilled: “Our tour manager Harvey said it would be really good to be a part of this show and this concept. I was like, ‘Oh my god I’m down’.

“Plus once I knew who the girls would be I was even more down. I was like, ‘Count me in’, because the girls are so great. I’ve loved it from the moment we got started.”

The trio are currently taking a short break this month, as Dianne is performing on the Strictly Come Dancing Live! tour with BBC stars Pasha Kovalev, Giovanni Pernice, Katya Jones, Oti Mabuse, Karen Clifton, Nadiya Bychkova, Neil Jones and Gorka Marquez.

But Chloe, Amy and Dianne will be gearing up to return to their tour next month.

Speaking about taking part in Here Come The Girls, the dancer admitted it is completely different to the Strictly arena tour.

She said: “You know what, I’ve never done a theatre tour before. I’ve never done that. The only tour I’ve ever done is the Strictly tour which is in arenas. And it’s very, very different.

“With theatres you’re more close to the audience, it’s very interactive. And you get a very different response, or sound response then what you do in a huge arena.

“For me that was another reason why I wanted to do it and experience that.”

She added: “So for me I was like I want to give it a go because I’m either going to love it or I’m going to hate it but at least I can say I’ve done it.”

Chloe was previously a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing for two years in 2016 and 2017.

The dancer performed in the dance numbers on the live BBC One show, but was never partnered with a celebrity.

Speaking on whether she would return to the show she admitted she would “give it a thought”.

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.

“I couldn’t thank them enough for taking me under their wing and taking care of me. But sometimes things happen for a reason. And I think like this [Here Come 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 I would definitely give it a thought.”
