THE FIRST three couples have been announced for the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing arena tour.

TV documentary maker Stacey Dooley performs with Aljaž Škorjanec, This Morning’s Dr Ranj Singh partnera Janette Manrara, and YouTube sensation Joe Sugg dances with Dianne Buswell.

The sextet will compete each night as the popular annual tour visits cities across the UK including Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester.

Stacey, Aljaž, Dr Ranj, Janette, Joe and Dianne will don their dancing shoes and join tour host Ore Oduba – a past Strictly winner – and judges from the TV show.

Stacey Dooley is a renowned BBC journalist whose hard-hitting documentaries have taken her to some of the most dangerous and unexpected parts of the world.

Stacey said: “I’m loving this experience so much. I know people always say that, but it’s so true. I’m so excited! I will miss Kev, but I am looking forward to putting Aljaž through his paces!”

Dr Ranj Singh is best known as resident doctor on This Morning, and has also presented CBeebies programmes.

Dr Ranj said: “From the sequins to the sashays, I have loved my Strictly journey, so to join the Live Tour is beyond exciting. I can’t wait to be reunited with Janette, hit the road and meet all the Strictly fans!”.

Joe Sugg is a global star, vlogger, filmmaker and entrepreneur with over eight million subscribers tuning into his YouTube channel every day to watch his antics and shenanigans.
