Judging them will be Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell while this year's host is last season's Strictly Champion Ore Oduba.

The Strictly Live Tour is one of the most popular touring dance shows for all the family that traditionally starts its national tour in Birmingham every January. Children particularly enjoy seeing their favourite stars of the show in person as they keep dancing.

This season's winner and Holby City star Joe McFadden said: "I honestly didn't think I'd make it past the first few weeks on Strictly, let alone get to go on the tour. It's going to be a wonderful experience, which I'm really looking forward to."

Adding to the atmosphere will be other Strictly professional dancers, the Strictly singers and the Strictly live band who dazzle with additional group song and dance routines at the event.

Personalities taking part shared their excitement at being selected to compete in the live tour - when audiences are able to text vote to choose a winner for each show.

TV personality Debbie McGee said: "I don't think I've ever been so fit in my life! This whole experience has been incredible and I can't wait to get my dancing shoes back on for the 2018 tour."

While actress and radio presenter Gemma Atkinson said: "Alja˛ has really put me through my paces over the last few months, physically, mentally and creatively, so am thrilled we are being paired again for the Strictly tour! Come on the North!"

EastEnders heartthrob Davood Ghadami said that being on Strictly had been a blast with the training stricter than his gym regime. He will be rejoining his glamorous dance partner Nadiya Bychkova
