Speaking about the upcoming tour, Ellie Leach said: "I said before that appearing on Strictly was a dream come true and now, I will get to be on the tour as well! I can’t wait for January to experience it all over again – it’s going to be a blast."

Angela Rippon said: "Having really challenged myself on the TV show over the last seven weeks, it's going to be wonderful to continue the Strictly magic on the tour next year. From hosting Come Dancing to performing for over 10,000 people at The O2 – I really will have completed the ultimate Strictly journey."

Layton Williams said: "The Strictly tour means more sequins - lots and lots of sequins! I couldn't think of a better way to end this fab experience. I can't wait to dance in arenas across the country and meet all the fans that have supported my journey."

Audiences at the Arena will get to vote on who wins a trophy at the end of the show.
