Final Tour Celebrities Announced

The final celebrities to join the Strictly Live Tour have been announced.

Simon Webb will dance with Kristina Rihanoff
Scott Mills will dance with Joanne Clifton

Unlike past tours, all the celebrities are from the current series.

In an interesting development, the judging panel is getting a makeover. Joining Craig Revel Horwood will be Series 6 champions Tom Chamber and Camilla Dallerup.

I think this is a good thing. Len and Craig's bickering, and Bruno's chair-falling antics are starting to become tired. While I wouldn't want to see them leave the show, it's nice to play with the line-up on tour. Tom will know what the participants are feeling, having performed on the show and the tour. And anyone who follows Camilla on Twitter will know that she often judges and scores the dances at home. I find her very fair, and think she will nicely balance the panel. It's also nice to have a woman back on the tour panel.

The tour begins on 16th January at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham (formerly the NIA), and runs until 18th February. See for more information.
