Actress Lisa, who is famed for starring in Emmerdale, appeared on the BBC1 dance show last year and later took part in the tour herself.

Lisa Riley announced as host of Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour - 31 October 2013

The Strictly tour will run across the country from 17 January to 9 February and will feature contestants who are taking part in the current series.

Judges Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli will also be on hand to give the dancers and their partners feedback on their moves.

Craig will once again be directing the show too - and choreographing the steps for the new celeb line-up. Phew!

Speaking about her new role, Lisa 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!"
