Coronation Street actor Leach, 22, is the favourite to win Strictly, alongside her partner Vito Coppola, thanks to her impressive Strictly journey so no doubt fans will be delighted to see she has signed up to the tour.

Bad Education star Williams, 29, too has wowed everyone with his dancing ability - although his appearance hasn’t been without drama as many have questioned whether his West End experience gives him an advantage on Strictly.

Award-winning broadcaster Angela Rippon, 79, who is the oldest star in the competition showed no signs of slowing down any time soon with her plans to tackle the tour.

It is the arena audiences who have the power to cast the deciding verdict of who lifts the Glitterball Trophy at the end of each show.

The infamous Strictly judges share their invaluable dancing knowledge - offering advice to the dancers as well as revealing their scoring paddle.

But the final decision always remains in the power of the audience for the Strictly tour, who have to text for their favourite couple.
