TEAM GB Olympian Louis Smith is the latest twinkle-toed star to join the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour.

Louis will be joining dancing sensation and TV actress Lisa Riley, Tracy Beaker star Dani Harmer and former England Cricket captain and legend Michael Vaughan in wowing audiences across the country following his huge popularity and early success on this year’s ratings winning BBC1 show.

More celebrities will be announced soon.

Louis Smith said: “The support I’ve had on the TV show has been incredible. I can’t believe how much I’ve enjoyed dancing every week. I love the pressure of performing in front of a live crowd, and I can’t wait to do that in some of the biggest arenas across the UK.”

Alongside the celebrity line-up, Craig Revel Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli are back as the tour’s formidable judges. They will be on hand to give their expert feedback and all important scores to the celebrities and their dance partners. Kate Thornton will return as the host of the live show.

Strictly fans can watch their favourite dancing couples competing live for the votes and all important feedback of the TV judges and vote themselves via their mobile phone.

Arena audiences will experience Strictly’s glitz, glamour and choreography, courtesy of judge Craig Revel Horwood, who is directing the arena tour for the third year running.

The television format, also known as Dancing With The Stars, entered the Guinness Book of World Records two years ago as the world’s most successful reality television show and there are now 43 local formats of Dancing with the Stars around the world.
