Three of the four Strictly Come Dancing finalists will be hot-stepping their way to Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena next month to star in the Strictly Live Tour.

Model and dancing sensation Abbey Clancy, BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid and Coronation Street actress Natalie Gumede will all take part in the Live Tour, but will one of them be crowned the 2013 Strictly champion on Saturday?

They will be joined on the multi-million pound tour, which hits the Steel City on Tuesday January 28 and Wednesday January 29, by Dragons’ Den star Deborah Meaden, Westlife heartthrob Nicky Byrne, former England Rugby World Cup winner Ben Cohen and actor and funny man Mark Benton. Each celebrity will be dancing with their on-screen professional dance partner.

Alongside the exciting line-up, Craig Revel Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli are back as the tour’s formidable judges. They will be on hand to give their expert feedback and all-important scores to the celebrities and their dance partners.

Former Strictly favourite Lisa Riley returns to the glitterball dance floor as host of the 2014 tour.

Strictly fans will get to watch the celebrity dancing couples competing live for the TV judges’ votes and then get to vote themselves with their mobile phones.

Tickets are available online at www.motorpointare, by phone on 0114 256 5656 or in person at the Arena box office, priced from £36.75 to £71.50.
