Amy announced her engagement to Ben in 2018 after he popped the question during a party on New Year's Eve. The couple were once the British National Dance Champions, with Amy also being one of the highest-ranking Ballroom and Latin American professional dancers in the UK. She made her debut on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017, partnering with comedian Brian Conley and then Danny John-Jules the following year.

According to the website, the tour will have a mix of Ballroom and Latin routines which has been choreographed and directed by Patrick Raja-Helm. "This show promises to be fresh and innovative with amazing routines to dazzle and wow you," the website reads. "Patrick will also perform on the show with Dianne!" Strictly stars Dianne and Amy have established themselves on the hit BBC show dance show. Although, Chloe was never partnered up with a celebrity during her two-year stint on Strictly, she took the lead roles in group numbers and often appeared on It Takes Two, as well as dancing with Gethin Jones in the 2016 Christmas special.
