by Padraig Conlon

Clear the floor and whip out your score cards, because the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour is coming to Dublin at the end of the month.

Fans will be delighted to hear that Strictly favourite and 2018 TV show winner Stacey Dooley is returning to host the tour for the first time.

Showcasing all the amazing choreography and live music that Strictly is known for, audiences will get to experience a host of breath taking dance routines.

Preparing to slip out of her dancing shoes and into the role of host, Stacey Dooley couldn’t be more excited.

“I can’t quite believe I’m going to be hosting the 2020 tour,” she says as she gets ready to follow in the footsteps of 2019 tour presenter Ore Oduba.

“Ore was amazing so he’s a tough act to follow.

“But it’ll just be lovely to get back with the dancers and to throw myself back into the world of Strictly.

“I’m so, so looking forward to it. I really can’t wait.”

The 2020 roadshow is set to be even bigger than previous year’s, taking in 33 shows across nine venues.

Fans will again be treated to spectacular production numbers and the audience also gets to decide who walks away with the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show.

With Strictly currently in its 17th season on television and the live tour gearing up for its 13th outing, Stacey sees the arena show as a post-Christmas jamboree that keeps the party going.

“There’s a certain element of responsibility but I just want to make sure everyone has the most incredible time.

“People love Strictly and I want it to feel like a huge celebration.

“I just want it to feel like a real fun party. I went everyone to be on great form, I want them to be up dancing, I don’t want it to be reserved or straight or serious.”

“The audience are the best bit.

“They all love Strictly.

“That’s why they’re there and they get behind everyone.”

Strictly Come Dancing – The Live Tour comes to the 3Arena on January 28. Tickets are available now from Ticketmaster.ie.
