Ahead of the upcoming 2019 series, first details for next year's live tour have been confirmed as tickets go on sale and dates are revealed.
The Strictly Come Dancing UK Arena Tour is waltzing back on the road from January next year for 29 supersized sequin-filled shows across the country.
Who is the Strictly 2019 tour host?
Fans will be delighted to hear that Strictly favourite and 2017 TV show winner Ore Oduba will be hosting the tour for a second time.
The 2019 tour will be directed once again by the FAB-U-LOUS Strictly TV Judge Craig Revel Horwood and feature many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the highly anticipated 16th series of the award-winning BBC One show. Further casting announcements will be made over the coming months.
Ore Oduba said: "Goes without saying, I’m so excited to be back hosting the Tour again! As many people know, Strictly means a lot to me so to be back with the gang...well, let’s just say it didn’t take long for me to say ‘yes’!
"I had the best time hosting the 2018 tour, the Strictly fans were as loud and excitable as ever. And I’m sure 2019 will be no different, we’ve got a sensational show planned. And yes - when we hit the road in January - I will be packing my dancing shoes!”
As well as enjoying the glittering routines, arena audiences have the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show. After each celebrity couple has performed, the tour judges will provide their invaluable critique and scores - but the audience can also vote via text for the favourite couple and ultimately they will decide who wins!
