Strictly Come Dancing Tour - Celebrities Announced

Chelsee Healey said "I am so thrilled to be part of the Strictly Tour"

The first three celebrity contestants have been announced for the hugely anticipated Strictly Come Dancing Tour 2012, coming to the NIA in Birmingham city centre from 20th to the 22nd of January.

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".

This year's BBC1 series began on 30th September and has already seen Edwina Currie, Rory Bremner, Dan Lobb, Nancy Dell'Olio and Lulu voted off the show. The programme has been receiving TV audiences in the region of 11.5 million viewers. The television format, also known as Dancing with the Stars, entered the Guinness Book of World Records two years ago as the world's most successful reality television show and has been sold by BBC Worldwide to over 35 international broadcasters. Last year's final saw more than 14 million people tune in to see Kara Tointon raise the Strictly glitterball!
