Annabel Croft said: “I’m used to interviewing people in front of very large crowds but to dance in arenas for many thousands of people is something else.

“Dancing every week on the TV show has been such a joy, so I can’t wait for the magic of the tour and to experience it with my new tour partner, Graziano.”

Bobby Brazier said: “I love dancing and I love Strictly, so what better way to continue the brilliant experience than on the live tour.

"I’ve heard from Dianne what a blast everyone has on the road.”

Not only are the arena audiences treated to the spectacular roof-raising routines, but they are also granted the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show.

The tour judges will of course provide their invaluable wisdom, advice, and scores at each performance but the ultimate power lies with the audience.

A text for their favourite couple is all it takes; their votes will decide who wins

As with the 2023 tour, each performance will host a British Sign Language interpreter, who will be displayed on two very large screens on either side of the stage so that audiences can book tickets and sit almost anywhere in the arena.

Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Tour is on at Leeds First Direct Arena Leeds on Thursday February 1 and Friday February 2.
