Lisa Riley heads Strictly Come Dancing live tour at Capital FM arena

The Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour returns to Capital FM Arena Nottingham 4-5 February 2014 with a brand new host. Dancing sensation and actress, Lisa Riley, returns to the glitter-ball dance floor to host the incredible live incarnation of BBC One’s smash hit entertainment show.

On the announcement of hosting the tour, Lisa Riley said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be hosting the Strictly Come Dancing Live Arena Tour 2014. I had a ball on last year’s tour and was blown away by the amazing reception I got from the audiences across the country; I can’t wait to go back on the road! See you in January!”

The multi-million pound show production will also star Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli, who are back as the tour’s formidable judges. They will be on hand to give their expert feedback and all important scores to the celebrities and their dance partners. Details of the celebrities and dancers appearing on the tour will be announced in November.

The 2014 live tour will feature a brand new line-up of your favourite celebrities and dancers from the hugely popular BBC One show. Strictly fans get to watch the celebrity dancing couples competing live for the TV judges’ votes and then get to vote themselves with their mobile phones. Arena audiences will experience Strictly’s glitz, glamour and breathtaking choreography, courtesy of judge Craig Revel Horwood, who is directing the live show for the fourth year running.

The tour has received rave reviews in the national newspapers since it began – the Mail on Sunday awarded the 2013 tour a 4 Star review and the Daily Telegraph said: “The glitzy occasion still sparkles... It was Fab-u-lous”. The Sunday Express have previously said of the tour: “7000 of us raised the roof. Does it get much better? Not often.”

Last December a peak audience of more than 13 million viewers tuned in to watch the Strictly final on BBC One, when gymnast Louis Smith was crowned the winner. The television format, also known as ‘Dancing With The Stars’, entered the Guinness Book of World Records three years ago as the world’s most successful reality television show and 48 different versions of the show have been licenced across the world by BBC Worldwide.
