What happens on the Strictly Come Dancing tour?

The celebs will each dance two of their favourite dances from the Strictly 2017 live shows for the audience and the judges.

Just like on the main show, the judges will offer comments before marking the routines out of 10.

The audience will be able to vote via text (typically at a cost of 25p) to decide the winner of the glitterball.

As well as the couples' performances, there will also be a number of group routines.

The Strictly live tour running time is typically between 2 hours 15 minutes and 2 hours 30 minutes.

The show is split into two roughly one hour halves with a 15 or so minute interval in between.
