Strictly Come Dancing The Live Tour will waltz back to Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena for two shows next month - so step this way to win tickets, writes Graham Walker.
We have five pairs of tickets to be won to the 2.30pm matinee on Tuesday, January 27.
The other show is 7.30pm that night.
And the final line-up as been announced - including a ‘fab-u-lous’ new live tour judging panel, including former Strictly winners Tom Chambers and his professional dancer Camilla Dallerup, joining Craig Revel Horwood.
It has also been revealed that celebrities from this year’s series, Blue pop star Simon Webbe and Radio 1’s Scott Mills will join Frankie Bridge, Thom Evans, Caroline Flack, Mark Wright and Alison Hammond on the UK tour.
Completing the line-up is Strictly favourite Zoe Ball, who will host the tour.
It is the eighth consecutive year BBC One’s smash hit entertainment show is returning to the Motorpoint.
At the live shows Strictly fans watch the celebrity dancing couples competing for the judges’ votes and then get to vote themselves for their favourites, using their mobile phones.
The television format, also known as Dancing With The Stars, is one of the most successful TV series ever created and has been sold into over 50 countries around the world.
The tour has received rave reviews since it began in 2008
Since winning the 2008 Strictly series, Tom Chambers has won a prestigious Olivier Award nomination for his performance in the award-winning West End musical Top Hat and he is currently starring in White Christmas at London’s Dominion Theatre.
Of joining the live tour judging panel he said: “Wow, what an opportunity! Having won the 2008 TV series and performed on the tour with Camilla, 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 famous judging seat and see which of the celebrities wins the competition at each performance!”
Simon Webbe, receiving top scores on the BBC1 series, said: “I jumped at the chance to join the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour and carry on my dance journey just that bit longer. I was really nervous at the beginning of the series but now I’m having so much fun and don’t want it to end.
