The tour will give arena audiences a chance to see AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington's show dance ­— performed to Naughty Boy’s Runnin’ ­— that they were unable to perform in the series final due to AJ’s foot injury.

They will also perform their American smooth from the series.

Series champions Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice will perform their couples choice and Argentine tango.
