Rylan shared the news on his social media this morning.
In the accompanying post, He wrote: "After 4 fantastic years it's time for me to hang up my glittery jacket and say goodbye to It Takes Two.
"I've had the best time hosting the show alongside Janette and Zoe and I can't thank the amazing team enough for always putting on a great show.
"I've been welcomed into the Strictly family and will firmly hold that title dear to me.
"The time has come for me to pass on the baton to someone else and explore what else life has for me.
"Thank you Strictly, you will always have my heart…and dancing feet. Ry x."
Rylan joined the BBC Two Strictly spin-off show in 2019, initially co-hosting the programme alongside Zoe Ball.
When Zoe, 52, left in May 2021 to focus on her BBC Radio Two breakfast show, former Strictly pro Janette, 39, replaced her alongside Rylan.
Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted says: “On behalf of BBC Two, BBC Daytime, and Strictly fans everywhere, I want to thank Rylan for entertaining audiences so brilliantly for the past four years on Strictly It Takes Two.
