Jonnie Peacock and Susan Calman are the first celebrities announced for the Strictly Come Dancing Live tour 2018.
They will be joined by judge Darcey Bussell when the show hits the road in January. This will be the first time that Darcey has been part of the tour and she will sit alongside Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli.
Ore Oduba will be the tour’s host and more names, both celebrity and professionals, will be announced in the coming weeks.
Darcey Bussell said, “I had great experiences touring around the UK as a professional dancer…quite a few years ago now! I am really excited to be able to tour again, this time with the wonderful Strictly company. I can’t wait to meet the fantastic audiences that make Strictly the phenomenon we know and love. See you soon!”
