Strictly Waltzes Into Town With Balls Of Fun
For those dreading withdrawals from the Saturday night Strictly glitterball, there's relief with the return of the live tour.

Plus, it's being billed as the best yet as it will be the 10th anniversary of this live show.

Fans can keep dancing with many of the stars, professional dancers and judges from the 2016 series as Strictly Come Dancing reaches arenas around the country, kicking off in Birmingham on January 20, 2017.

A star-studded cast includes Ed Balls, Ore Oduba, Danny Mac, Daisy Lowe, Lesley Joseph and Louise Redknapp.

Meanwhile previous contestant Anita Rani will be the host of The Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Tour. Joining Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood on the judging panel will be popular former professional dancer Karen Hardy, a regular on the It Takes Two spin off programme.

The 30 show spectacular will open at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham on 20 January 2017 and then visit venues including Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, Sheffield Arena, The SSE Arena Glasgow, Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, First Direct Arena Leeds, Manchester Arena, Liverpool's Echo Arena and The SSE Arena Wembley in London, before culminating at The O2 in London on 12 February.

Already practising his moves is Ed Balls, who told Weekend Notes: "My time on Strictly has been incredible. I've been overwhelmed by the huge support I've had from the public voting for me. Going on tour is going to be another first for me and I plan to give it everything I've got for the audiences across the country."

Ed will be on the tour but unable to star at the Manchester event due to prior commitments.

Popular BBC Sports presenter Ore Oduba added: "Taking part in Strictly has surpassed my wildest dreams. So much so it's difficult to imagine life without it! The live tour means I don't have to wake up from this Strictly dream. I can't wait to travel the country with my friends and meet the fantastic audience that made our whole experience possible."

Craig Revel Horwood will direct the tour for the seventh year, and has promised to keep up with the sparkle and dazzling dance routines synonymous with Strictly.

As with previous years, audiences can experience everything that they love about the TV show including getting to vote for their favourite couple of the session and seeing them handed the glitterball at each live event.

While the judges will provide their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at each performance on tour, it will be the audience that has the final say with a text vote via their mobile phones.

Will judge Len Goodman have some sevens up his sleeve?

Head Judge Len Goodman, who is retiring from the TV show after this series, will be embarking on his swan song of the tour too.

Len said: "The live tour always has such a great atmosphere and the 10th anniversary tour will definitely be one to remember, especially as this will come as I complete my final year on the TV series as Head Judge. Rest assured audiences, this tour will be a ten from Len."
