Strictly Come Dancing tour 2014

Susanna Reid, Abbey Clancy, Deborah Meaden and Nicky Byrne have all been confirmed for the Strictly Come Dancing 2014 live tour.

They will join Natalie Gumede, Mark Benton and Ben Cohen – who left the current series last weekend – in a star-studded line up set to travel to ten different venues in nine different UK cities.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will also be on hand to give their expert feedback and all important scores – with former Strictly favourite Lisa Riley returning to the glitterball dance floor as host.

Choreographer Craig directs the live show for the fourth year running.

“Strictly is intense, absorbing, enormously demanding and endlessly enjoyable,” said BBC Breakfast host Susanna.

“I’m thrilled I’m going to be part of the tour, I’ll be making sure I’m on top form, to put on the best show possible for the wonderful arena audiences around the country.”

Model Abbey added: “I’m having the time of my life on Strictly this year and I am so excited to be joining the 2014 tour.

“Dancing in some of the biggest arenas around the country is such a great opportunity and I can’t wait to thank everyone for the support I’ve received on the TV series.”

Deborah Meaden added she was “gutted” her Strictly run had ended, saying the chance to wear “those fabulous costumes and dance with the gorgeous Robin again is too good to miss!”

The multi-million pound production will open at the Birmingham NIA on 17 January 2014.

Strictly fans get to watch the celebrity dancing couples competing live for the TV judges’ votes and then get to vote themselves with their mobile phones.

Kian Egan will do well on I’m A Celebrity, says Westlife’s Nicky Byrne

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here’s Kian Egan won’t shy away from any disgusting Bush Tucker Trials, according to his former Westlife bandmate Nicky Byrne.

Kian entered the Australian jungle along with nine other celebrities at the weekend, hoping to be crowned the King of the Jungle 2013. So far, he hasn’t been chosen by the public for any challenges but Nicky says he won’t have any problem getting stuck into a nasty task if it comes his way.

“I think he’ll do well on the show as he won’t shirk away from anything put in front of him,” said Nicky during a chat with Ray D’Arcy on Irish radio station Today FM.

“I think with these kind of shows, especially I’m A Celebrity, people like to see the people crying and dying to do these kind of things but Kian will just get stuck in!”

As for whether Kian is naturally competitive, Nicky said: “Yes. Out of us all, probably me and Kian would have clashed a little bit with our competitiveness as I’m very competitive as well.”

When Kian was announced as an I’m A Celeb contestant for 2013, Nicky tweeted: “Wishing @KianEganWL the V best in his jungle ventures. Kangaroo anus? Not a bother to him! But reunion is a further yr away with those burps!”

Sadly, the reunion reference was just a joke as he told Today FM there were “absolutely” no plans to get Westlife back together any time soon. “I swear to God, sitting here now, there has never been a plan,” he said, although added that he knew other bands had done it very successfully.

“Take That left it ten years and came back… they took it up to the next stage, I suppose. They came back bigger than they ever were and did stadiums. I think it came down to a lot of nostalgia and their songs were very, very good. They took it to the next level. Boyzone came back and did it to the same level they were at when they broke up, which was still enormous.”

Nicky Byrne: ‘Westlife success down to You Raise Me Up’

Westlife were on the verge of splitting in the mid-2000s – until they agreed to record single You Raise Me Up after years of snubbing the track, according to Nicky Byrne.

The singer admits the four piece didn’t know how to spot a hit, and continually turned down the Secret Garden tune.

Westlife came close to parting ways in 2005 but Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh eventually convinced them to record the track – and their fortunes turned around.
