More recently, 2021 champions Giovanni and Rose Ayling-Ellis shared an adorable video of themselves expressing their delight at being reunited for more performances.

Cuddling up to Rose, the professional dancer revealed how "nice" it was to be back with his champion dance partner. "So yeah, dress run thing is going very well," Rose remarked in the video shared on Giovanni's Instagram Stories, as she stood behind Giovanni, who quipped: "It's not a dress run 'thing'. It's a dress run."

Meanwhile, the tour has made some big changes inspired by Rose – the first deaf contestant to compete on the show – after it was announced that the string of shows will also include a registered British Sign Language interpreter for every performance, making it the "biggest ever BSL accessible arena tour" in the UK.

The Strictly Come Dancing Live UK Arena Tour commences on Thursday and ends on the 13 February.
