There was no shortage of sparkles and sequins for the launch of Strictly Come Dancing’s live UK tour yesterday – and that was just Robbie Savage.
The Mirror footie columnist will join celebs including Nancy Dell’Olio, Chelsee Healey and Anita Dobson, who rehearsed with the pro dancers.
The show's reigning champion, McFly drummer Harry Judd and Australian star Jason Donovan are also going on the tour, which will call at Birmingham, Nottingham, London, Sheffield, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow, Cardiff, Dublin and Belfast.
Judd said he is not getting any special treatment and "everyone does the same" throughout the tour - two dance numbers each plus a couple of group dances.
"It feels very good coming into the Strictly tour as champion. I was thinking about that before the final; I thought 'I know I'm doing the tour and I'd love to be the reigning champion on the tour', so I did it and it feels good."
Since lifting the glitter ball trophy, Judd said he has enjoyed a good rest at his parents' house and the victory has not changed his life too much.
"I kind of just went home after the final and went to my mum and dad's, and sat and watched TV and just did normal things for about two or three weeks.
"My life hasn't really changed. I'm just being as normal as possible and that's how I like to lead my life really," he said.
