Former Strictly dancers Ola and James Jordan are set to tour together for the first time.
The couple, who live near Maidstone, will embark on the UK tour, James and Ola: Uncensored, which tells their own love story, 18 years after they first met.
With a full cast of dancers and all styles of dance, their passionate autobiographical production will kick off in Blackpool in March, 2018 - a town that of course holds a lot of history for them both.
The tour includes one date in their home county, coming to Folkestone's Leas Cliff Hall on March 6, 2018.
The couple met in 2000 after they both needed new dance partners and James flew to Poland to try out with Ola.
A month later she moved to England, unable to speak the language, but six months after meeting they entered their first competition together.
They went on to compete all over the world, winning many championships and representing England in the World Championships.
They married in 2003 and joined Strictly in 2006. James left the show in 2013 with Ola following two years later and since then they have continued to be in the public eye, with James being a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in 2014, and the All-Star version of the show earlier this year, and Ola appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! last year.
They said: “It’s great to be able to do our own tour, our way, and to offer something totally different to any other dance show.
"We want to perform a sexy, edgy interpretation of our life story, whilst still having all the sparkle and fun people expect from us - and the best part is that we get to dance together again, we cannot wait.”
Tickets for the show next year go on sale on Friday, October 20. To book visit ticketmaster.co.uk
