Strictly Come Dancing
The Live Tour
The first three celebrities who will be joining 2023’s hotly-anticipated Strictly Come Dancing Live UK arena tour are announced today: Actor Will Mellor (Broadchurch, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps); Paralympic swimming champion and broadcaster Ellie Simmonds; and Kiss FM radio host, TV presenter and DJ Tyler West will be foxtrotting their way across the country for 31 sparkle-filled shows kicking off in January.
They will be joined on tour by Strictly TV judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke, who is appearing on the arena tour for the first time. The sensational Janette Manrara will host. Further casting announcements will be made soon.
The Strictly Live Tour showcases all the breathtaking choreography, stunning costumes and fantastic live music synonymous with BBC One’s long-running and cherished Strictly Come Dancing TV show – which is currently on our screens, with the final due to take place in December.
The 2023 tour will be directed once again by the A-MAZ-ING Strictly TV Judge Craig Revel Horwood and will feature many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the current series of the multi-award-winning BBC One show, together with the Strictly Live Band - a great way to celebrate the 20th series of this entertainment phenomenon.
Audiences around the UK can experience everything they love about the TV show live on stage, getting the chance to not only watch the spectacular stars in action as they perform roof-raising routines, but also the power to decide who wins the Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show. The tour judges will provide their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at each performance, but the audience vote via text for their favourite couple, and it is ultimately their votes which decide who wins!
Each performance of the tour will host a British Sign Language interpreter, who will be displayed on two very large screens either side of the stage so that attendees can book tickets and sit almost anywhere in the arena to enjoy the experience with family and friends.
