Strictly Come Dancing stars Hamza Yassin and Molly Rainford have been announced as cast members for the show’s UK arena tour.

They join previously confirmed contestants Will Mellor, Ellie Simmonds and Tyler West for the 32-run show starting in January.

Wildlife cameraman Yassin, 32, is a frontrunner to win the Glitterball trophy and has been a hit with the voting public and the judges alike.

His work outside of the dance show includes Countryfile and Animal Park.

He said: “Strictly has changed my life in ways I never imagined, so to be doing the tour on top of it all is a dream come true.

“I’ve heard the tour audiences are unparalleled, so I’ll be relishing the atmosphere every night, and I’m so excited to share that experience with my fellow dancers – not to mention the judges.”

Yassin recently wowed judges with a samba to They Live In You from The Lion King with his professional partner Jowita Przystal.

Meanwhile, actress, broadcaster and singer Rainford has told how she cannot wait to continue her “Strictly journey”.

The 22-year-old has consistently impressed the Strictly judges but also found herself in the dreaded dance-off throughout the competition.

She said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Strictly Live Tour. Performing for the huge arena crowds across the UK is going to be an incredible experience.

“I’m really looking forward to continuing my amazing Strictly journey and getting out on the road to meet all the fans.”

The live show visits venues across the UK including Glasgow’s Ovo Hydro and the SEC Armadillo.

The Strictly Come Dancing final is on December 17.
