So thus far we have:

Lisa (most likely with Robin)
Dani (most likely with a new partner)
Michael (most likely with Natalie)
Louis (most likely with a new partner)
Fern (most likely with Artem)

I'd say that there's one or two still to go on that list - most likely Denise and a 'newbie'.
Denise I think is going into a show after Strictly. Tour does not sound too exciting. Not the same if celebs do not dance with their original pro. It does not work.

I'd love to see Louis dancing with Natalie, I think they'd be fantastic together! She's my favourite female pro dancer and as much as I love Michael, I'd like to see her with a really athletic partner again.
Oh yessssss! What a good idea

Now that might get me to consider paying 79!

Unfortunately that's not likely to happen as Michael is touring so Nat will be dancing with him.

And just seen that Aliona has tweeted she is NOT doing the celeb tour next year .... so I presume that means that both Katya and Ola/James will be doing it.

Wow that's unexpected, I thought she was a certainty! And I could have sworn that she said somewhere before that she is doing it...

From her tweet it sounds like she's not doing it to avoid long-term injury rather than being told she's not wanted though.


I do agree that paves the way for the Jordans to do it, and maybe even for Katya to dance with Pasha seeing as they tour together anyway, with Karen & Artem dancing together?

Unless she's choreographing part of it but has been told on medical advice not to dance it maybe?

I would guess she isnt taking part just due to the nature of her recent injury - she would be silly to risk further injury taking part in a 6 week intense tour

Are you sure it is six weeks? Looks like 3 and a bit to me.

If Denise doesn't tour then I cannot see Jordans taking part, however if she does maybe Chris Hollins back as an "oldie" - he is doing the Xmas show and doesn't do Breakfast any more.

I didn't see the tour the year he won, but was given the video and they didn't let him and Ola do their Charlston - just turned it into some sort of mish-mash group thing that didn't work.

Van outen v Hollins in the Charleston - that would be worth the price of a seat !!

nope, i have no idea it was a pure guess!

however long it is, its an intense run of live shows, sometimes 2 a day so I think she is just being sensible and this is coming from a huge Aliona fan who has already got her tickets and is gutted she isnt taking part

The Strictly 2013 tour website with the dates shows a much reduced tour,3 weeks and a weekend.

Maybe she was told that Johnny Ball is doing the tour and she would be expected to dance with him?

I think she has been dropped tbh... It was only a few weeks ago she tweeted this.

Aliona tweets : https://twitter.com/AlionaVilani/sta...42205533110272

I wanted to clarify saying that I had/have no part in all the rumors going aroundand and looking forward to working on the next year's tour!


I had already agreed a month ago with the Tour provider to their terms and conditions for the SCD Live Arena tour 2013!
Just to clarify again it's absolutely in my plans and goals to do the SCD Live Arena tour 2013 and I would look forward to take part in it!✌

I unfortunately think so too....I think if it was to do with her injury then she would have known way before now and would not have been talking just the other day in an interview about it....I'm one gutted Aliona fan, this is the first time im free to attend the live tour and my fav pro won't be there

well she sounded pretty happy about it to me - almost too happy. came across as 'they've kicked me so I'll act all pleased like I'm not bothered and didn't want to do it anyway' she was SO keen a few days ago!! Hope this is not the case.

It looks to me like the tour needs some more attractions.

Prices up and less events?

They seem to have used up almost all the backlog of celebs?

Certainly seems a bit lacking in sparkle - we have tickets for Sheffield and the lineup is not setting me on fire.

Denise is likely to be in the final as weekly judges top scorer, with either Kimberley or Nicky or even maybe Lisa getting through on public votes.
So Denise may not win as public decide the Strictly winner, and we know that (almost definitely) Kimberley won't tour so they really need to get Nicky and Denise signed up.

No "Comedy turn" signed yet either.
Widdy with Craig was brilliant 2 years ago, and Nancy with Artem was hysterical last tour.
We know Lisa is not hopeless, so it won't be funny for her to do the schtick

Is John Sergeant free ?? Kristina needs a celeb.

I still think there may be some clues from the Xmas show with former winners being re-contacted.
May have the situation where they have "guest" celebs at various venues.

Well factor in rehearsal time as well.

I think her previous tweets are indicative that something's happened in between to make her no longer able to tour, and since then she's had her injury assessed. She hasn't done anything to fall out of favour so in my mind it really has to be either injury-related or due to lack of a suitable partner. She has the big draw celeb for the Christmas special too, so she's obviously still in favour.

well she sounded pretty happy about it to me - almost too happy. came across as 'they've kicked me so I'll act all pleased like I'm not bothered and didn't want to do it anyway' she was SO keen a few days ago!! Hope this is not the case.
It came across to me like she was happy to get the time at home in Florida, that's all.

That's a lot of couples - is it not usually 7 or 8?
