EastEnders heartthrob Davood Ghadami said: “Being on Strictly has been such a blast. The training has been stricter than my gym regime, so am excited to keep it up on the road and can't wait to perform in the huge arenas all over the country.”
TV personality Debbie McGee added: “I don’t think I’ve ever been so fit in my life! This whole experience has been incredible and I can’t wait to get my dancing shoes back on for the 2018 tour.”
Actress and radio presenter Gemma Atkinson raved: “Aljaž has really put me through my paces over the last few months, physically, mentally and creatively, so am thrilled we are being paired again for the Strictly tour! Come on the North!”
Singer Alexandra Burke commented: “I cannot wait to get out on tour and connect with all the Strictly fans in their home towns. This is an amazing opportunity to perform some of my favourite routines in all these huge arenas – what better way to start the new year!.”
Finally, Strictly Come Dancing winner and Holby City star Joe McFadden said: “I honestly didn’t think I’d make it past the first few weeks on Strictly, let alone get to go on the tour.
"It’s going to be a wonderful experience, which I'm really looking forward to - particularly dancing in my hometown of Glasgow!”
