STRICTLY COME DANCING THE LIVE TOUR

RETURNS TO CAPITAL FM ARENA NOTTINGHAM

9-10 FEBRUARY 2016

 

SATURDAYS’ STAR FRANKIE BRIDGE IS FIRST CELEBRITY ANNOUNCED FOR THE 2016 TOUR

 

Pop star Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays is the first celebrity contestant confirmed to compete in the 2016 Strictly Come Dancing UK tour.

 

Frankie, a finalist in the 2014 BBC One TV series, was due to appear in this year’s tour, but reluctantly had to step down at the 11th hour on the advice of her doctor when she found out she was pregnant.

 

Frankie says; “I was so disappointed not to be able to perform in this year’s Strictly Tour, as I’d been so looking forward to continuing my Strictly journey.  But following the birth of my son in August, I’m thrilled to have been asked to join the 2016 tour.  It will be great to get my dancing shoes back on and be part of the Strictly family again. Roll on January!”

 

Frankie will join the new Strictly tour host Mel Giedroyc and judges Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood (who also directs the tour) and Bruno Tonioli for the 30 date live extravaganza. They will be joined by celebrities and professional dancers from this year’s ratings winning BBC One show, who will take to the dance floor to recreate their dazzling moves and compete for votes from the judges. More names will be announced over the coming weeks.

 

There will be three shows at Capital FM Arena Nottingham. One show on Tuesday 9 February at 7:30pm and two shows on Wednesday 10 February at 2:30pm and 7:30pm.

 

BBC One’s popular entertainment show Strictly Come Dancing returned to TV screens last month for an exciting new series, featuring another amazing line up of famous faces from the worlds of show business, music, sport and television.

 

During the live tour, Len, Craig and Bruno will be providing their invaluable wisdom, advice and scores at the end of each performance. But as well as competing for the judges’ scores,  the celebrities and their dance partners will also be battling to win votes from the arena audiences, who can text vote via their mobile phones and will ultimately have the power to decide who will win the prized Glitterball Trophy at the end of each performance.

 

Featuring many of the celebrities and professional dancers from the star-studded thirteenth series, the super-sized spectacular live arena tour will bring them back on to the dance floor to recreate their most popular routines from the TV series. Details of celebrities and professional dancers appearing on tour will be announced over the next few months.
