X Factor's Christopher Maloney and Strictly's Kristina Rihanoff are working on a new show together.

The pair, who met on Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother in 2016, will be heading on the road together with a touring musical production.

Dance To The Music's UK tour will see Chris and Kristina sharing the stage alongside a number of other familiar faces.

They include Kristina's former professional dance partner and fellow ex Strictly pro Robin Windsor, as well as Oksana Platero, who was partnered with Judge Rinder on Series 14 of the BBC show.

Plus, Oksana’s husband Jonathan Platero will also be joining the cast alongside singer-songwriter Beth Sherburn.

Speaking to new! magazine about the show, Kristina said: "It's dancing through the ages, looking at each dance craze through the decades. It's a big project that I'm so excited about. It's a dream to create something so unique with people I love."

On teaming up with Chris, she added: "Well obviously he's singing, as that's what he does!

"We met on CBB and we stayed friends. When the producers asked me to put forward some names, I immediately thought of him."

Here's a little bit more about the show if you're interested:

‘Dance to the Music’ will present to the audience the one and only dance show in theatrical history, which will feature ALL styles of dancing.
