The full line up for the Strictly Come Dancing arena tour in 2023 has been announced. This comes just days after Hamza Yassin alongside pro dance partner Jowita Przystal lifted the glitter ball.
Despite the show’s recent schedule being chopped and changed due to World Cup coverage, the live final saw a reported 9.2 million viewers tune in. Hamza and Jowita finished first ahead of Helen and Gorka, Fleur and Vito as well as Molly and Carlos.
The landmark series for the popular BBC One show was also one its best ever. Perfect 10s were being handed out by week three, we saw the top Latin scores in Strictly history and the highest-marked quarter-final ever.
And, the quality didn’t stop there. Across the final show, where we witnessed 12 breathtaking dances, just a mere 17 points were dropped as Hamza and Jowita salsa’d their way to the trophy.
The live UK arena tour will last for 32 shows spanning almost a month, starting in January 2023. The tour will kick off at the Utilita Arena in Birmingham on January 20, ending in Glasgow on February 12. The tour will be directed by loveable villain Craig Revel Horwood.
Who are the confirmed couples taking place on the tour?
The full line up has now been confirmed after two couples were recently announced. The full line up is:
- Fleur East & Vito Coppola
- Helen Skelton & Kai Widdrington
- Will Mellor & Nancy Xiu
- Molly Rainford & Carlos Gu
- Ellie Simmonds & Nikita Kuzmin
- Tyler West & Dianne Buswell

One of the finalists, Fleur East said “As a huge Strictly fan, being part of the TV
competition has been an unbelievable experience and I’m absolutely over the moon to have the chance to get back into those fabulous sequinned outfits for the live tour next year!”
Fellow finalist Helen Skelton said: “Strictly has been the adventure of a lifetime and I’m so happy that it will continue next year on the live tour. I’m really looking forward to seeing the fans across the country and performing my favourite dances from the series. I can’t wait!"
