Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge is the first celebrity to be confirmed for the 2016 'Strictly Come Dancing' live tour
Frankie Bridge has been confirmed for the 2016 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour.
The Saturdays singer was a finalist on last year's series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' but had to pull out of the 2015 arena shows when she discovered she was pregnant with her second son Carter, who is now two months old.
Frankie - who also has 23-month-old Parker with her husband Wayne Bridge - is "thrilled" to have been invited back and is looking forward to being reunited with her "Strictly family".
The 26-year-old pop star - who was partnered with Kevin Clifton on the BBC One TV show - said: "I was so disappointed not to be able to perform in this year's 'Strictly' tour, as I'd been so looking forward to continuing my 'Strictly' journey. But following the birth of my son in August, I'm thrilled to have been asked to join the 2016 tour.
"It will be great to get my dancing shoes back on and be part of the 'Strictly' family again. Roll on January!"
Elsewhere, Frankie has been busy working with Marie Curie's charity to make an appeal to people across the UK to support the Superdrug and P&G FeelSuper Campaign.
Frankie, who launched the campaign as P&G brand ambassador back in April, said: "When we first kicked off the Feel Super campaign we were so determined to reach our target of raising £100,000 and are thrilled to have beaten that already. We're committed to doubling it to raise £200,000 for Marie Curie, and have made it EVEN easier for people to get involved."
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' tour kicks off in Birmingham on January 22 and ends at The O2 in London on Valentine's Day (14.02.16).
