"Honestly, it’s so inspiring to see just how powerful representation is and the difference it can make. Everyone should be allowed to experience the full magic of the show and I have no doubt that this will encourage and empower more members from the deaf community! So proud to be a part of this and can’t wait to get back on that stage with the rest of the Strictly gang… the question is, who’s coming along to the Live Tour!?"

The Strictly stars look like they are already very much enjoying one another's company as Max George shared a video of a group playing table tennis. The match was won by Rose and Tilly Ramsay, who celebrated by jumping and hugging one another as their fellow cast members looked on. Their tour looks like so much fun!
