STRICTLY COME DANCING
THE LIVE TOUR
RETURNS FOR A FAB-U-LOUS NINTH YEAR
Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th January 2016
Strictly Come Dancing the Live Tour stops off at Sheffield Arena for two nights next week on Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th January 2016.
Strictly Come Dancing Champion 2015 Jay McGuiness will be joined by fellow celebs Georgia May Foote, Helen George, Anita Rani, Ainsley Harriott, Jake Wood and Frankie Bridge. Strictly super fan Mel Giedroyc is the tour’s brand new host and judges from the TV series Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli are reunited for the tour.
The professional dancers from the ratings winning BBC One TV series and their celebrity partners for the tour are:
Frankie Bridge and Kevin Clifton
Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice
Helen George and Aljaz Skorjanec
Ainsley Harriott and Natalie Lowe
Jay McGuiness and Aliona Vilani
Anita Rani and Gleb Savchenko
Jake Wood and Janette Manrara
Karen Clifton will also join the tour for the professional dances and group numbers.
Jay McGuiness is one fifth of the globally successful band, The Wanted. Since their 2010 debut album was released, they have enjoyed huge success all over the world, including two number one singles in the UK with All Time Low and Glad You Came.
Jay says: “I’m used to performing in front of massive crowds when touring with The Wanted, but performing with Aliona on the Strictly Live Tour will be a totally different experience. I loved my time on the TV series, but the idea of being back out in front of live arena audiences is something I’m very much looking forward to.”
As with the television show, the judges will provide their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at each performance. But not only are the celebrities and their dance partners competing for the judges’ scores, they will also be battling to win votes from the arena audiences, who can text vote via their mobile phones and ultimately have the power to decide who wins the prized Glitterball Trophy at the end of each performance.
