‘Strictly Come Dancing Live’ will welcome Will Mellor, Ellie Simmonds and Tyler West when it kicks off in 2023.
All three celebs have been part of the 2022 series, with Mellor still in the running for the ‘Strictly’ glitterball trophy.
They will be joined on tour by ‘Strictly TV’ judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke, who is appearing on the arena tour for the first time, with Janette Manrara will host.
Speaking about the upcoming tour, Will Mellor said: Strictly has been one of the most memorable and emotional journeys I’ve ever been on! Stepping out of my comfort zone and being a part of this massive show is something I’ll never forget. I can’t wait to put on my dancing shoes and go around the country to perform on huge stages in front of thousands of people who have watched and supported us. Bring on the tour!!”
Ellie Simmonds said: “Strictly was a such an incredible life-changing and emotional experience for me – it gave me a huge confidence boost and the feeling that anything is possible! So to be able to continue my journey on the tour next year is going to be amazing. I can’t wait!”
Tyler West, whose time on the TV series came to an end at the weekend following a nail-biting dance-off, said: “I never realised how much dance would change my life but I can’t express how much I’ve loved it and fully embraced this opportunity to learn to dance with the best dance partner anyone could ask for in Dianne! I am so happy my Strictly journey isn’t over quite yet and I can’t wait to relive some of our favourite dances and live like a pop-star on tour performing for audiences each night! I am buzzing to get on the road with the gang.”
Opening at the Utilita Arena Birmingham on 20th January, the scintillating live show will then waltz around the UK to some of the biggest entertainment venues: Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena, Leeds’ First Direct Arena, the AO Arena Manchester, Sheffield’s Utilita Arena, Newcastle’s Utilita Arena, London’s O2 Arena, the SSE Arena Belfast, before culminating at the OVO Hydro in Glasgow on 12th February.
