Former cricketer Phil Tuffnell and television presenter and West End star Denise Van Outen have completed the line-up for the Strictly Come Dancing live tour.

The pair join Tracey Beaker actress Dani Harmer, television presenter Fern Britton, actress Lisa Riley, Olympian Louis Smith and former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan on the 2013 tour.

Van Outen is appearing on the current series of Strictly and has topped the leaderboard for the past four weeks. She said: “I’ve had the time of my life on Strictly Come Dancing and can’t wait to take the show on the road, dancing in front of a huge live audience, night after night!

“I’m so glad my Strictly dream doesn’t have to end yet!”

Tuffnell took part in series seven of the BBC One show and reached week nine of the competition. Famous for his comedic routines, he said: “Just when I thought it was all over!

“I can’t wait to join the Strictly Come Dancing 2013 Live Tour and see what this year’s celebrities have got.

“They don’t stand a chance!”

Judges Craig Revel Horwood, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli will also be on the tour, giving their feedback and scores to the celebrities and their dance partners. Revel Horwood is directing the arena tour, which will be hosted by Kate Thornton.

Strictly fans can watch their favourite dancing couples competing live for the votes and all important feedback of the TV judges and vote themselves via their mobile phone.

The Strictly Come Dancing Live tour 2013 will be at The O2 on February 2 and 3, and at Wembley Arena on February 5 and 6.
