Take That are to perform their new single, Hey Boy, live on the Blackpool Strictly Come Dancing spectacular on Saturday, November 21.

The group, who now perform as a trio, said: “Looking forward to seeing everyone when we perform on Strictly’s annual special at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom. We love playing Strictly and the Blackpool crowd are always up for a big night out!”

Judge Craig Revel Horwood said: “I am thrilled that Strictly is returning to Blackpool once again this year, our yearly trip there is one of my highlights of the series! The Blackpool Tower ballroom is simply one of the most stunning ballrooms in the world and there is a real magic to the place. Not only is it stunning, but the unique sprung dance floor provides an extra challenge for our celebrities as well. I cannot wait to get back there!”

Strictly Come Dancing’s executive producer Louise Rainbow said: “Blackpool has been the home to many very special Strictly moments. Who can forget Judy Murray flying up on balloons last year or 2013’s spectacular group performance with dancers aged 8 to 80 to Young Hearts Run Free! Our annual visit to Blackpool really is the time when the competition hots up for our couples.”

Strictly Come Dancing will be live from Blackpool Tower on Saturday, November 21 with the results show screening on Sunday, November 22 on BBC One.
