They will be joined by Strictly favourite Zoe Ball, who will host the tour. Zoe appeared in the 2005 TV series and also hosted the 2011 tour.

On announcing her place on the tour, Alison Hammond said: “After the wonderful, warm reception I received from taking part in BBC’s Strictly, I’m thrilled to be part of the Live Tour. It’s going to be great fun to strut my stuff all across the country, but I am particularly excited that we will be opening the tour in Birmingham. I am counting on a great home crowd to get us off to a sparkling start!”
Mark Wright added: “I’ve had the most incredible time on Strictly and I’m delighted that my Strictly journey won’t end quite yet. I can’t wait for the tour to start in January – if Blackpool was anything to go by, being able to perform in big arenas in front of thousands of people really is going to be FAB U LOUS! I’m going to make sure I put everything I have into each and every performance, so I need all the Strictly fans to come down and cheer me on!”
Caroline Flack also commented: “My Strictly experience so far has been amazing. I’m enjoying every minute of the TV show and doing the tour lets me carry on dancing a little bit longer. I hope that those who have been so lovely and supported me each week will come along to see the show. Dancing for people who took time to vote for me will be an honour.”
Strictly fans watch the celebrity dancing couples competing live for the judges’ votes and then get to vote themselves with their mobile phones.
