Janette Manrara takes over hosting duties for Strictly Come Dancing Live tour as it comes to the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham
Former Strictly professional Janette Manrara is set to cha cha cha into her new role as host of the 2022 Strictly Come Dancing Live arena tour.
Janette will preside over proceedings at 33shows across the country, including at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on February 9 and 10.
After being a pro dancer on the hit show for eight years — finishing second with HRVY last year — she has moved to become co-host of Strictly: It Takes Two this year.
She said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be hosting the 2022 Strictly arena tour. It’s a dream come true.
“It’s been two years since the last tour so the expectation and build-up has been huge.
“The show is going to be bigger than ever with lots of glitter, lots of sparkles, lots of excitement and lots of incredible dance routines.
“And you never know…you might just see me taking to the dance floor myself — I can’t wait, I’ve really missed it!”
She will be joined by tour judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli, who is making his return to the judges’ desk for this tour, and a host of to-be-announced stars and their professional partners.
