Strictly sizzling for tango pair
Sizzling with latin heat, seductive choreography and faultless ballroom dancing, Midnight Tango is a collaboration of a number of favourites from BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing.

Flavia Cacace, winner of the latest series with Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, performs with her professional dance partner, popular Vincent Simone.

But what you may not realise is that the show has been produced by Strictly's former judge Arlene Phillips, while the director is Olivier Award-winning choreographer Karen Bruce, who has choreographed for both Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance on BBC1.

Midnight Tango stops off at Birmingham's New Alexandra Theatre for one week from May 7 to May 11.

It is the third tour for the successful show, which first opened in April 2011 and has been seen by almost half a million people across the UK and Ireland to date.

Set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires, Vincent and Flavia have choreographed the show to reflect all the life, drama, sensuality and elegance of the tango.

They are joined on stage by some of the finest tango dancers in the world, and, between them, they take the audience on a journey into the heart of this intoxicating city, as danger and excitement, joy and jealousy, pain and passion combine into a spectacular and explosive evening.
