WE'RE GOING TO BE DANCING ALL XMAS!
Sadly, this series of Strictly Come Dancing came to end an last weekend with Kelvin Fletcher taking home the Glitter Ball - but - it's not all doom and gloom as the Christmas special waltzes onto our screens this Xmas before, before heading to Brum for the live tour!
We've loved every second of this year's Strictly Come Dancing and we honestly think it's been one of the best there's ever been - which has made us even more giddy about the Live Tour which struts into our place in the New Year. But before that, it's all about the Christmas special.
Christmas is NOT Christmas without the SCD Xmas special and by the sounds of things, this year's show is going to be HUGE with Gemma Atkinson, Joe Sugg, Mark Wright and more returning to the dance floor! Make sure you tune in on Christmas Day - and who knows - after a few sherry's you may even think you're the next Kelvin Fletcher.
Back to the Live Tour, it all kicks off right here at Arena Birmingham on the 16th January and will be in town until the 19th and the line-up is SO good...
We're talking social media sensation Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard, EastEnders actress Emma Barton and Graziano Di Prima, BBC Breakfast's Mike Bushell and Katya Jones, Sky Sports presenter Alex Scott and Neil Jones, Actress Catherine Tyldesley and Johannes Radebe, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden and this year's Champion Kelvin Fletcher who'll be performing with Janette Manrara!
The sparkling line-up of celebrities and professional dancers will join new tour host and reigning Strictly champion Stacey Dooley, and the tour judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood (who also directs the tour) and Bruno Tonioli!
It doesn't stop there… oh no! To add even more sparkle professional dancers Luba Mushtuk, Karen Hauer, Dianne Buswell, Joshua Keefe, Jake Leigh and Robbie Kmetoni will also be performing in this supersized dance spectacular AND the tour will feature music from the Strictly singers and the Strictly live band.
You're not only invited to watch the spectacular stars as they perform roof-raising routines, but also have the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show. The tour judges will, as always, provide their feedback and scores after each performance, however the audience can vote via text for their favourite couple, and it is ultimately their votes that will decide who wins!
