The show has been advertised as having “seductive choreography and passionate performances”.

For everybody that’s been asking, I can let you know that this series, I sadly won’t be partnered with a celebrity for the main series of Strictly. However, I will still be heavily involved in all of the group numbers and all things Strictly! I’m excited to see this year’s celebs and my fellow professionals dance for the Glitter Ball and I hope to be back fighting for it next year. As always, it’s gonna be a GREAT series. 🕺🏼💃
“We can’t wait to travel around the UK and to meet you all.”
Marquez, who recently welcomed his first child with former Strictly contestant Gemma Atkinson, said: “I can’t wait to get out on the road with Karen for this very exciting new tour.
“We are both really passionate about Latin dance, and this tour will really showcase that.”
He recently confirmed that he will not have a partner on Strictly Come Dancing this year, but will still be taking part in the group numbers.
He added that he hopes he will be back fighting for the glitter ball trophy next year.
Hauer, who recently divorced fellow professional Kevin Clifton, is paired with comedian Chris Ramsey on the show this year.
The tour kicks off in High Wycombe on March 6. Tickets go on sale on Friday September 13.
