If going on a cruise isn't flamboyant or over-the-top enough for you, then we've got just the thing.

The BBC and P&O have teamed up to launch a new series of Strictly Come Dancing-themed cruises for 2019, with multiple professional dancers and even one of the judges on board for a truly authentic bit of razzle-dazzle.

The cruises will involve the stars of the show doing Q&A sessions, signing autographs and general mingling, as well as (this is the exciting part) hosting one-on-one dancing lessons and taking part in a dance competition.

More information on accommodation, destinations and prices are available on the P&O website and, honestly, does anyone want to lend this writer a couple of grand?

If you can't afford to take two weeks off work and/or get seasick easily, there's always the Strictly Live Tour to keep you cha-chaing while the show is off the air.
