Tonight marked the opening night of the highly-anticipated tour, as the class of Strictly Come Dancing 2021 embark on a 22-date tour of the UK.

From January 20 aan 23, the dancers will perform in Birmingham, before heading to Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool and Glasgow.

They’ll then head to Nottingham before finishing off at London’s O2 arena.

Streng 2020 finalist Maisie, 20, is filling in for 2021 finalist AJ Odudu, after she was forced to pull out of both the competition and the tour due to a painful ankle injury.

The ex-EastEnders actress is overjoyed to be on the tour though, and has since become best pals with semi-finalist Tilly, ook 20.

The pair graced the stage earlier this evening for a photocall with the rest of the Strictly ladies, and posed up a storm in their metallic dresses.
