The Strictly Come Dancing contestants might be busy prancing around on our TV screens every weekend, but some have already signed up for Strictly Come Dancing: The Live Tour 2014.

Ben Cohen, Natalie Gumede and Mark Benton are the first three celebs to join the live tour.

We're pretty excited about this news!

Ben Cohen


Here's a really big picture of Ben. Y'know, just because...

Rugby star Ben says: "I love to test myself and Strictly has certainly been a challenge, but I'm growing in confidence with every week that passes and I'm starting to feel at home on the dance floor now.

"What better way to take things one step further than to perform in front of thousands of people every night, in some of the biggest arenas in the country? Count me in!"

Don't forget our tips about your outfit choices, Ben.

Coronation Street's Natalie has also been loving her time on the BBC1 show.

Mark can't wait to hit the road.

She says: "I'm hugely excited to be part of the Strictly tour, it's the perfect excuse to keep dancing! I'm having so much fun and I've learnt so much already, I just want the experience to last as long as possible.

"Dancing for all the fans who have voted to keep me in the show will be really special, I can't wait."

And actor Mark adds: "Entertaining arena audiences with my ever evolving dance steps will be a fantastic way to start the New Year. I cannot wait to hit the road and recreate my favourite routines for fans around the country."

The trio will be joined by formidable judges Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood daaaaaaaarling.
