Strictly Come Dancing might be in full swing but once the TV version is over, the celebs will take to the road for the live tour.

The nationwide tour is the perfect chance for Strictly fans to see their favourite dancers in action.

A range of celebrities and professional dancers from the 15th series are expected to take part.

The tour kicks off in Birmingham Arena on 19 Jan and ends on 11 February in the O2 Arena in London – visiting Scotland and Northern Ireland inbetween.

You can get tickets from Ticketmaster here .

But who has signed up so far?

Host: Ore Oduba

The reigning champion is back but won’t be dancing this year.

Instead, the Strictly 2016 winner will host the show – introducing the celebrity dancers and keeping the judges in check.

“Winning Strictly was the most unforgettable experience and a dream come true,” he said.

“I’m so thrilled that I get to keep that dream alive and take part in the Strictly live tour once again, this time as host.

“This show and its fans will always hold a special place in my heart so I can’t wait to travel the UK again and meet the fantastic audiences that make Strictly the phenomenon we know and love.”

Craig really went in on her

The show’s ‘Mr Nasty’ will be back to direct the live show for the eighth year running.
