The Strictly live tour brings back some of the golden moments of the last series, including Ed Balls' Gangnam Style routine, for audiences across the UK

Last year’s Strictly captured the hearts of the nation’s telly viewers, leaving us pining for Ed Balls’ awkward pelvic thrusts, Ore Oduba’s unforgettable jive steps and Danny Mac and Oti Mabuses steamy jungle samba.

Its launch last night at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham saw some of the show’s most memorable moments recreated, as well as a few moves from judge Craig Revel Horwood.

Danny, whose impressive dance skills took him right to the final in 2016, won the first performance of the tour – but for viewers who were lucky enough to snag tickets, every moment was magic.

The tour, which will continue until February 12, will take the returning dancers to Newcastle next, then to Sheffield, Glasgow, Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool – before four final nights in London.
