Joining her on the tour will be fellow contestants from this year's competition Ainsley Harriott and Anita Rani, who spoke of how much she has enjoyed her time on the show so far.

"I've thrown myself into Strictly and can't believe how much I'm enjoying learning to dance. I'm over the moon to be able to carry on the glittery experience and join the tour," Anita said. "For a Yorkshire lass what better place to visit than my old uni town of Leeds. I hope everyone comes down for a northern knees up!"

Georgia, Ainsley and Anita are set to join The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge on the tour, along with more celebrities and professional dancers who have yet to be named. Frankie was left "devastated" earlier this year as she was forced to pull out of the 2015 tour when she found out she was pregnant with baby number two, so was "thrilled" to get the opportunity to perform again in 2016.
