Ore Oduba said “Goes without saying, I’m so excited to be back hosting the Tour again! As many people know, Strictly means a lot to me so to be back with the gang…well, let’s just say it didn’t take long for me to say ‘yes’! I had the best time hosting the 2018 tour, the Strictly fans were as loud and excitable as ever. And I’m sure 2019 will be no different, we’ve got a sensational show planned. And yes – when we hit the road in January – I will be packing my dancing shoes!”
You can expect sequins, choreogrphy, incredible live music, and much more. It’s guaranteed to be full of breathtaking dance routines and all the glitz and glamour of the TV series.
If that wasn’t enough, arena audiences also have the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball trophy at the end of each show. After each celebrity couple has performed, the tour judges will provide their invaluable critique and scores – but the audience can also vote via text for the favourite couple and ultimately they will decide who wins!
