The Strictly Come Dancing pros will be back on the road next year
Following the end of the series in December, some of the show's professional dancers will swap the small screen for the intimate stage, giving fans another chance to show off what they do best in style. The full line-up will no doubt be announced soon as the upcoming series is set to return this autumn. Fans were quick to share their delight, with one saying: "Fantastic tour with dancing in Strictly!" Another wrote: "Omg I’m so excited!" A third post read: "Need to go again."
In September, the BBC will confirm which celebrity contestants will be joining our favourite ballroom dancers on the 2019 Strictly series. Sunday Brunch's Tim Lovejoy, Call the Midwife actress Leonie Elliott and BBC newsreader Huw Edwards are some of the stars rumoured to take part. Radio DJ Chris Evans confirmed his spot during last year's series - much to the amusement of fans. At the time, he told The One Show: "I have said yes. Everyone puts it off and tries and keep it a secret. No, announce now. We're doing it now."
The star also joked that he'd like to do it so his wife could be in the audience, telling Alex Jones: "So you and my wife will go every week. You will have a great time while I'll be petrified backstage, with shaky legs and all that kind of stuff." Watch this space!
