Strictly Come Dancing Live @ The O2

Everything You Need To Know

We’ve got quite a dancey year coming up at The O2 – what with A Night of Dirty Dancing in April, and Strictly Come Dancing Live in February. However, the latter is all anyone is talking about right now, with the finals just around the corner, and plenty of gossip too.

‘I'm sooooooooo excited. Tickets validated for Strictly Come Dancing Live show tonight. Look out for me and Amelia in the studio audience,’ says @Discodiva68. We will do, Disco Diva, and here’s everything you need to know for the night:



The Judges

Yep, the same old familiar faces will be there to cast judgement on the glitter-clad celebrities and their professional partners. We’ve got Len Goodman and his level-headed insights, Bruno Tonioli and his fiery, sometimes filthy, remarks, and of course the exceptional Craig Revel Horwood, who will yet again be directing the extravaganza.


The host

This year we’re delighted that the incredibly lovely Mel Giedroyc will be hosting the show. As a long time Strictly fan, she’s extremely excited to be joining the team, and hasn’t quite ruled out the possibility of getting on stage and shaking her booty – although she has requested some support (of the corset nature, rather than moral). We just hope she brings some of that Great British Bake Off banter to the stage!


The celebs

The final line-up is yet to be confirmed, but we’ve already had some corkers announced! Everyone’s favourite Yorkshire TV presenter Anita Rani is on the roster, along with celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott. We’ve also got the gorgeous Corrie actress Georgia May Foote. But the big news is that, after having to pull out due to her pregnancy, Frankie Bridge (AKA Frankie from The Saturdays) is back, and will be performing during the 2016 tour! Yay!


The dances

Oh don’t worry – all the favourites will be there – the waltz, the foxtrot - maybe even a cha cha cha! Strictly’s expert choreography will bedazzle you almost as much as the heavily sequinned coordinated outfits (and we can guarantee there will be plenty of them).
