Strictly Come Dancing will be heading up North to host a special edition of the show from Blackpool Tower, after residents of the town begged for it to return.

The famous Tower Ballroom, which was the venue for Strictly’s predecessor ‘Come Dancing’, will play host to the special show.

Contestants this year include Natalie Cassidy, Lynda Bellingham and Phil Tufnell.

Controller of BBC1 Jay Hunt said: “It’s great that this year Strictly Come Dancing is going back to the home of ballroom. Our night in Blackpool will add extra sparkle to this series”.

The show will air on Saturday, 7th November.
