Caroline Flack to headline the Strictly Come Dancing UK Tour

STRICTLY Come Dancing fans will have another chance to see newly crowned winner, Caroline Flack, on the 2015 UK Tour starting on Friday, January 16 at The Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham.

Following Saturday’s nail-biting final on BBC One, watched by more than 11 million people, Caroline will now recreate her winning moves live on the Strictly Come Dancing UK Tour, as it travels across the country.

Caroline will be joined by a host of stars from the TV series, including fellow finalists Frankie Bridge, Mark Wright, Simon Webbe and contestants Thom Evans, Alison Hammond and Scott Mills.

The new tour judging panel features 2008 Strictly winners Tom Chambers and Camilla Dallerup, together with Craig Revel Horwood, who will also direct the arena tour for the fifth year running. They will be joined by Strictly favourite and host of the BBC2 Strictly sister show It Takes Two Zoe Ball, who returns to the glitterball dance floor as host.

Tickets for the 2015 tour went on sale in September and have been selling fast ever since. Arena audiences will experience all of Strictly’s glitz, glamour and breathtaking choreography and be able to watch their favourite dancing couples compete live for votes and the all important feedback of the judges in the arenas. The audience members can then vote themselves via their mobile phone.
