The Strictly Come Dancing 2017 live tour kicks off this week and Ed Balls can't wait to strut his stuff.

Six celebs will be on the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 tour: Louise Redknapp and Kevin Clifton, Danny Mac and Oti Mabuse, Ore Oduba and Karen Clifton, Ed Balls and Katya Jones (*except Manchester dates), Daisy Lowe and Aljaž Skorjanec and Lesley Joseph and Gorka Marquez.

The live arena shows begin this Friday in Birmingham and Ed is super excited.

"The reality is that if you’re Sir Paul McCartney or Bruce Springsteen, you probably get a bit complacent about playing packed arenas. But if you’re me, you never do this," he said.

Speaking tot he Express And Star, Ed continued: “I don’t really know what it will be like but I’m looking forward to it. On Strictly, the audience is a TV screen away.

"But this time, there’s no barrier. The audience is right there.”

Ed went on to reveal how since his stint on Strictly last year he gets people coming up to him in the street wanting to dance.

"The thing with Strictly is that it’s such a warm, fabulous show. Everybody enjoys it," Ed explained. Whether you support Celtic or Rangers, Villa or West Brom, you can enjoy Strictly.

"It’s a very unifying thing. It brings people together.

“It’s not just the grandparents, the kids love it. If I’m in the street, I get kids coming up to me doing the Gangnam dance.”
