Ash­ley Roberts said: “The cos­tumes, the crowds and the cha-cha-cha – I’m hav­ing the time of my life on Strictly and can’t wait to get my dance shoes back on for the tour. I couldn’t think of a bet­ter way to start the new year.”

The cou­ples are Graeme Swann and Karen Clifton, Faye and Gio­vanni , Stacey Doo­ley and Al­jaz Sko­r­janec, Ash­ley Roberts and Pasha Ko­valev, Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Man­rara, Lau­ren Stead­man and AJ Pritchard, and Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell
