If you’re already missing this year’s Strictly Come Dancing series, don’t fear, as the live tour returns in the new year.

Catch all the finalists, including winner TV presenter Caroline Flack, at venues including Manchester Arena and Liverpool Echo Arena from January 16, when it all high-kicks off in Birmingham.

Joining Caroline are fellow finalists Simon Webbe from Blue, Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays, and DJ Mark Wright, as well as Alison Hammond, Thom Evans and Scott Mills.

Blackpool-born It Takes Two presenter Zoe Ball will be back in the hosting role, too.

She said: “Strictly has a very special place in my heart, so I’m delighted to be hosting the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour again.

“This year’s TV series has been thrilling to watch, with a fantastic line-up of celebrities. It’s great to give fans the chance to see their favourite stars performing their most popular dance routines up close and personal. We promise a fab-u-lous evening of 
entertainment and sequins that the whole family will 
enjoy.”

And 2008 series winner Tom Chambers will be joining his one-time dance partner Camilla Dallerup to complete the judging line-up with Craig Revel Horwood.

Since winning Strictly, Tom has won an Olivier Award nomination for his performance in West End musical Top Hat and is currently starring in White Christmas at London’s Dominion Theatre.

He said: “Having won the 2008 TV series and performed on the tour, I know what it’s like to be on the arena dance floors and take the comments from the judges. I can’t wait to get into the judging seat.”
