Australian actor and singer Jason Donovan, feisty property lawyer and entrepreneur Nancy Dell'Olio and actress Chelsee Healey will all be involved in the show and will be joined by Kate Thornton, who is returning as the host of the live shows.
The multi-million pound show which is back for its fifth consecutive year will also feature judges from the show, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who is in fact directing the arena tour for the second year running.
Nancy Dell'Olio said: "I am really excited to be part of the tour. I enjoyed every moment of my time on the show and it is great I now get to continue with my new found passion".
Jason Donovan added: "I have been overwhelmed with the support I have had so far on the show and I have really enjoyed dancing every week. Learning so many different dances has been an amazing experience and I can't wait to see the new routines we'll be performing on the tour".
Whilst Chelsee Healey said: "I am so thrilled to be part of the Strictly Tour, the TV show has been more fun than I ever could have imagined and I can't wait to carry on dancing every week".
