The celebrity line-up has been announced for the 2020 Strictly Come Dancing Live arena tour.
The seven celebrities taking part are Sky Sports presenter Alex Scott, actress Catherine Tyldesley, EastEnders actress Emma Barton, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual, actor Kelvin Fletcher, BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell and social media sensation Saffron Barker.
Kelvin Fletcher said: “The Strictly experience is really like no other – the training and work that goes into it is immense. I feel like I’ve really pushed myself, but it’s completely worth it. I’m very much looking forward to continuing this adventure on tour next year!”
Alex Scott MBE said: “I’m really excited for next year’s tour – I hope I’ll get the chance to perform some of my favourite routines again. Strictly has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I’m thrilled that I’ll get to dance for everyone who has voted for me on the TV series.”
They will be joined by new tour host and reigning Strictly champion Stacey Dooley, and the tour judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood (who also directs the tour) and Bruno Tonioli. The line-up of professional dancers will be announced soon.
