Completing the line-up for group numbers and professional dances are six of this series’ professional dancers, Giovanni Pernice and Janette Manrara, AJ Pritchard and Chloe Hewitt and Oksana Platero and Neil Jones.

The celebrities and professional dancers will be joining tour judges Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood, who also directs the show, and Karen Hardy, along with 2017 tour host, Anita Rani.

The judges will provide their comments, advice and scores at each performance on tour. But not only are the celebrities and their dance partners competing for the judges’ scores, they will also be battling to win votes from the arena audiences, who can text vote via their mobile phones and ultimately have the power to decide who wins the coveted Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show.
