Last year when I found out that Erin Boag would not be appearing in Strictly Come Dancing, I was upset. Oh no, they're getting rid of another fan favourite, and replacing them with a different dancer yet again. That was until I realised that Erin was not being axed, but had decided to leave because she was going to have a baby. Of course, after that, I was happy for her, but at the same time, all the way through Strictly, missed seeing her perform. Because being pregnant means not only no Strictly, but no other shows either.
If anyone else is missing Erin and her charming dance partner, Anton du Beke, then let me bring you some good news. They're back. Not in time Strictly, sadly, but definitely in time for Christmas. What a delightful present, huh?
When you pull your Christmas Cracker, guess who will be making bang onto the stage. Anton and Erin will appear at the Albert Hall on the 21st & 22nd December, getting everyone in the festive mood. Songs include Me and My Shadow, Winter Wonderland, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, The Christmas Song, Jingle Bells, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, and, O Come, all ye Faithful. Tickets range from £32.45 - £51.15.
If your still pinning for more, there isn't long to wait, because on 2015 they start their UK tour, That's Entertainment. Anton and Erin will perform in London once again on the 7th February at the Barbican Hall, featuring classic hits such as That's Entertainment, True Love, Make 'Em Laugh, Steppin' Out With my Baby, and There's No Business Like Show Business. Tickets range from £43.45 - £52.25.
