'Strictly Come Dancing' will launch a new live event in three months' time that will allow fans to get up close to their favourite professionals, the judging panel and the hosts.
Viewers will be given the opportunity to experience a unique day out as part of the project 'Strictly Come Dancing : The Spectacular' at ExCeL London from June 22 until June 25 where they will be treated to an exclusive 90-minute theatre show, dance lessons with the professionals, celebrity interviews, a catwalk fashion show, and a costume exhibition.
Craig Revel Horwood said: "'Strictly Come Dancing : The Spectacular' is a dream come true - a fun-filled day that gets you as close as possible to some of the biggest names in 'Strictly...' Plus, I'll be there to reveal a few never-before-mentioned secrets and chatting about my favourite moments of the show. I can't wait to see you there, darling!"
Those hoping to brush up on their ballroom skills will have the chance to be taught some fancy footwork by Anton du Beke, Giovanni Pernice and Aljaz Skorjanec, while a segment called 'My Strictly Journey' will see past and present winners and contestants, including Jake Wood, Nancy Dell'Olio and Anita Rani talk about their experiences.
The show's hair and make-up team will also be on hand to share some tips and tricks with fans on how they can get the dazzling 'Strictly Come Dancing' glamour.
Fans can also pose for a photo with favourite stars for the ultimate 'Strictly...' souvenir and browse a shopping showcase featuring a range of lifestyle and fashion brands.
Tess Daly said: "I'm so thrilled to be involved with 'Strictly Come Dancing : The Spectacular'. We'll be at ExCeL London in 'Strictly Spectacular' style."
