Sheffield is to play host to the Strictly Come Dancing tour next year. Contestants Lisa Riley, Dani Harmer and Michael Vaughan will be among the stars who will be strutting their stuff in the city.

They will join judges Craig Revel Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli for the arena performances, which will be hosted by Kate Thornton.

All three of the newly announced names are still in the contest with Vaughan starting off poorly but wowing the judges with his progress in the past two weeks.

He said: "Learning so many different dances has been a huge challenge for me, but an amazing experience. I'm really looking forward to testing myself with the new routines we'll be performing on the tour."

Former Emmerdale and You've Been Framed star Riley said:

"I've had an absolute ball on the show and the chance to carry on dancing, and in front of thousands of people, is too good to miss."

The live show has sold more than 1.5 million tickets over the past five years.
