The first celebrities have been announced for next year’s Strictly Come Dancing UK arena tour.
This Morning’s Dr Ranj Singh, documentary maker Stacey Dooley and YouTube star Joe Sugg will all be taking part in the tour. Ranj and Joe will be partnered with the professionals they’ve danced with all series, Janette Manrara and Dianne Buswell respectively.
Stacey will be dancing with Aljaž Škorjanec rather than Kevin Clifton, who she is currently competing on the show with.
Commenting on taking part Stacey said, “I’m loving this experience so much. I know people always say that, but it’s so true. To be able to go on tour and perform for the fans all over the UK is such an honour. I’m so excited! I will miss Kev, but I am looking forward to putting Aljaž through his paces!”.
Dr Ranj said, “From the sequins to the sashays, I have loved my Strictly journey, so to join the Live Tour is beyond exciting. I can’t wait to be reunited with Janette, hit the road and meet all the Strictly fans!”.
Joe Sugg added, “I’m so thrilled to be joining the Strictly Tour in the New Year. I’m loving every minute of Strictly, so continuing my journey into 2019 is going to be brilliant. I can’t wait to get quick stepping at arenas all over the UK.”.
They will be joined by the judging panel, which will see Craig Revel Horwood, Dame Darcey Bussell, Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli giving their critique on all the performances, as they do every week on the show.
The Strictly Come Dancing 2019 live tour will feature 29 shows kicking off on 18th January 2019. After opening in Birmingham, the tour will visit arenas across the UK including; Leeds’ First Direct Arena, Manchester Arena, Liverpool’s Echo Arena, Sheffield’s Fly DSA Arena, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena and The SSE Arena, Wembley. The tour culminates with four shows at The O2 Arena in London on 9th and 10th February.
