The hugely popular television show may have finished for this series but Strictly Come Dancing fans can still get their fix when Strictly Come Dancing The Live Tour returns to London for its fifth year, appearing at Wembley Arena on Friday 27th January, and at the O2 Arena on Saturday 28th January and Sunday 29th January 2012. With over 1.25 million tickets for the live show already sold over the past four years, the 2012 tour is sure to be hugely popular event and visitors wishing to stay overnight can go to to book one of the hotels in London listed, many of which are within easy reach of the arenas where the show is taking place.

McFly drummer Harry Judd, a worthy winner of this series, is joined by his nearest rival Chelsee Healey and third placed former Neighbours star Jason Donovan. Ex-EastEnders actress Anita Dobson, Nancy Dell'Olio, former footballer Robbie Savage and ex-Olympic swimmer Mark Foster complete the celebrity line-up confirmed to date, all seven of whom will tour around the UK and Ireland for five weeks with the live show which is, once again, hosted by Kate Thornton.

The live show follows much the same format as the BBC series where the celebrities take to the floor with their professional dance partners to impress the judges with their moves whether it's the Tango, Jive, Waltz or American Smooth to see who will win the coveted glitter ball trophy. This year's judging panel features three of the four television regulars, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who is also directing the arena tour for the second year running.

The couples compete not only for the votes of the TV judges but also attempt to win over the audience who can cast their vote via mobile phone.

Strictly' fans 12 million of them tuned in to see the final show can keep on dancing' by watching the live show where the stunning costumes and the (sometimes brutally) honest remarks made by the judges are as much a part of the fun as the dance routines. If you're visiting London to see the show, go to where you will find a whole host of resources including hotels and their availability, nearby restaurants, bars and cafes as well as listings on other events and attractions in London.
