Ed left the show on Sunday night but he had been rumoured to be part of the tour. “My time on Strictly has been incredible. I’ve been overwhelmed by the huge support I’ve had from the public voting for me. Going on tour is going to be another first for me and I plan to give it everything I’ve got for the audiences across the country.”

The 10th anniversary tour will be hosted by former Strictly contestant Anita Rani and the judging panel will consist of Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Karen Hardy.
