Strictly Come Dancing has run on BBC One since 2004 with the fifth series finishing in December 2007 attracting an audience of over 12 million viewers, making it one of the highest rating shows of the year.
Matt Di Angelo, Darren Gough, Christopher Parker and James Martin are confirmed to join previously announced celebrity dancers Zoe Ball, Letitia Dean, Denise Lewis and Louisa Lytton in what is promising to be one of the hottest tickets of 2008. Television presenter Kate Thornton is today confirmed as the special guest host. More names still to be announced.
This must see show will see eight well-known faces from the worlds of entertainment and sport pack up their gowns and dance shoes as they once again turn celebrity dance contestants. Featuring all of the audience's favourite elements from the hit television series, Strictly Come Dancing Live will pit our celebrity dancers and their partners against judges Len Goodman, Arlene Philips and Craig Revel Horwood. Remaining faithful to the much-loved BBC show, the judges will deliver their analysis with their famous wit and wisdom.
Warming up for their first showdowns on the ballroom floors of some of the UK's major arenas are heartthrob actor Matt Di Angelo, who takes part in the current fifth series, television and radio presenter Zoe Ball (Series 3, 3rd place), cricketing legend Darren Gough (Series 3 winner), Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis (Series 2, runner up), ex-EastEnder and The Bill actress Louisa Lytton (Series 4, 4th place), actor and TV presenter Christopher Parker (Series 1, runner up) and Albert Square legend Letitia Dean (appearing in Series 5). The celebrities will be paired up with series regulars including Darren Bennett, Flavia Cacace, Matthew Cutler, Nicole Cutler, Camilla Dallerup, Lilia Kopylova, Vincent Simone and Ian Waite, who are amongst the world's leading professional dancers.
Talking about his upcoming performance on the tour, Darren Gough said:
"Before Strictly Come Dancing the thought of doing the Tango or the Waltz brought me out in a cold sweat, the only dancing I had ever done was the caterpillar dance when I was messing about with the lads so for me to agree to Strictly and dance in front of millions live on national TV was a real challenge, the last thing I thought was that I would end up winning the whole thing! People keep asking me if I still dance and I wish I could say that I do but as Captain of Yorkshire County Cricket Club I have not had the opportunity but this new Strictly tour gives me the chance to get back into the tight outfits and slap on the sequins - I am really looking forward to it!"
Talking about her upcoming performance on the tour, Zoe Ball said:
"I cannot wait to get out on the road in the New Year. I had a blast doing the TV show and now I'll be doing it all over again, wearing more of those amazing dresses, face to face with audiences of thousands of people at each show!"
Denise Lewis added:
"I'm really looking forward to dancing again and I'm hoping all the Strictly fans will come out and support us on tour because there'll be some fantastic dancing and it will be a great night out."
Tickets costing £45, £40, £32.50 will go on sale Monday 15th October 9.30am
