Riley to host live Strictly tour

Lisa Riley is set to host the live tour of Strictly Come Dancing when it begins in the new year.

The 2012 contestant, who was popular with viewers, is rejoining the tour, this time to front the shows in locations across the UK.

Lisa, 37, reached the semi final of last year's competition with pro partner Robin Windsor and was a hit as one of the dancers on the last tour.

Talking about taking part, she said: "I'm absolutely delighted to be hosting the Strictly Come Dancing Live Arena Tour 2014.

"I had a ball on last year's tour and was blown away by the amazing reception I got from the audiences across the country; I can't wait to go back on the road! See you in January!"

The full line up of dancers taking part in the tour will be announced later this month.

Shows will take place in Birmingham, Liverpool, London, Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham and Manchester.
