The stars of Strictly Come Dancing are taking to the floor at The Tower ballroom this weekend.

But fans of the prime time BBC1 hit show are in for a treat at the ballroom next week - getting a chance to follow in their idols’ footsteps just hours after the live broadcast from the venue.

On Monday to Wednesday, November 17 to 19, the ballroom will invite enthusiasts on to the floor for an hour’s professional dance tuition and afternoon tea.

BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing returns to the Blackpool venue on Saturday, November 15 for the sixth time.

A spokesman said: “The afternoon tea and dance package is a must for all Strictly Come Dancing fans, as you step into the limelight where your favourite stars have danced before you.

“Let our professional dance instructor take you through the steps as you enjoy the ultimate Strictly dance experience.”

Dance lessons take place at 10am and 4pm, with tea served from 11am to 4pm. Call (01253) 629233 to book tickets, costing £19.95.
