'Strictly Come Dancing': Caroline Flack, Alison Hammond And Mark Wright Join Tour

Caroline Flack has been announced as one of three new stars to join next year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ live show, alongside Alison Hammond and Mark Wright.


The trio will join Thom Evans and Frankie Bridge, who had previously been revealed as the first of this year’s contestants to be hitting the road for the ‘Strictly’ tour.

Former ‘TOWIE’ star Mark admitted: "I'm going to make sure I put everything I have into each and every performance, so I need all the Strictly fans to come down and cheer me on!”

Meanwhile, Alison, who was eliminated from the competition earlier this month, said: “It's going to be great fun to strut my stuff all across the country, but I am particularly excited that we will be opening the tour in Birmingham.

“I am counting on a great home crowd to get us off to a sparkling start!”

‘It Takes Two’ presenter Zoe Ball will be taking on presenting duties for the tour, which kicks off in Birmingham on 16 January.

Zoe has also been presenting the main show for the past three weeks, filling in for Claudia Winkleman, who has missed the show to care of her daughter, who is recovering from severe burn injuries.

Last week, Sir Bruce Forsyth made a brief return to ‘Strictly’ for this year’s Children In Need special, reuniting with his former co-presenter Tess Daly.

The two will also front this year’s Christmas special, which will see former competitors Rachel Stevens and Louis Smith lacing up their dancing shoes once again.
