Janette said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be hosting the 2022 Strictly Arena Tour! It’s a dream come true. It’s been two years since the last tour so the expectation and build-up has been huge. We’ve been desperate to return to venues around the UK and now we’re finally back. The show is going to be bigger than ever – with lots of glitter, lots of sparkles, lots of excitement and lots of incredible dance routines!  And you never know…you might just see me taking to the dance floor myself – I can’t wait, I’ve really missed it!”
