Strictly Come Dancing may be over for another year but three of its biggest stars will keep dancing as they launch a UK-wide tour.

Strictly professionals Aljaž Škorjanec, Giovanni Pernice and Gorka Marquez are performing a 38-date tour this summer including a date at Norwich Theatre Royal on Sunday, July 7.

Here Come The Boys will demonstrate why they are considered the rock stars of dance and will be set in a club where the show's live resident DJ will spin a soundtrack of dance floor anthems and guilty pleasures.

The trio will then go head-to-head in a battle of Latin, Ballroom, Contemporary and Commercial dance disciplines with the audience judging the contest each night.

The show will also feature live vocals from Elisabeth Troy who is a former member of chart-topping group Clean Bandit.

Aljaž, who joined the Strictly cast in 2013, said: 'Having worked on Strictly Come Dancing with Gorka and Giovanni for the past four years, I know we are going to deliver a truly incredible show for audiences all over the UK.

'While we might all be the best of friends, the show's competitive element means that there will be no love lost when we battle it out on the dance floor to win the audience vote. Serious bragging rights are at stake!'
