Thieves target stars of Strictly

Strictly Come Dancing stars have been targeted by thieves while on tour in Blackpool, police said.

A host of valuables, including an iPad, phone and jewellery, were stolen from dressing rooms used by the famous females competitors.

It is believed some of the celebrity contestants were victims of the crime.

Lancashire Police said they are investigating the incident, which was reported 45 minutes after the show ended last night.

A police spokesperson said last night: "We are investigating a theft that has occurred this evening at the Tower ballroom at Blackpool.

"It was reported to us at around 9:45pm that some items had been taken from a dressing room within the building.

"Officers are investigating the theft and are making a number of inquiries to trace the person or people responsible and we would appeal to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area to contact police."
