Strictly stars announce 29-date ‘Viva La Divas’ tour

Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers Janette Manrara, Katya Jones and Nadiya Bychkova are teaming up for a brand new song and dance spectacular called Viva La Divas.

Celebrating Broadway, Hollywood and West End divas, alongside some of pop music’s biggest female icons, the 29-date tour will see the trio perform across the UK throughout June and July.

Janette, Katya and Nadiya will be joined by a cast of dancers and singers as they put on a show-stopping extravaganza which will pay homage to divas ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Beyonce.

Speaking about the tour, Janette said, “I am so excited to be touring the UK with two of my best friends, Katya and Nadiya – and what a show it’s going to be. We’re going to be celebrating the glitz, the glamour and style of the greatest divas in showbiz. We’re going to have so much fun bringing this show to audiences across the UK and I can’t wait. It’s going to be a blast!”

Katya added, “To tour Viva La Divas across this beautiful country this summer with two incredible dancers, who happen to be my very close friends, is a dream come true. How the three of us managed to keep everything a secret for so long I’ll never know! Finally, we can shout it from the roof tops: girls on tour! It’s going to be epic.”

Nadiya shared her excitement, stating: “I’m thrilled to be part of the Viva La Divas tour this summer. We have an incredible team working on what will be a dazzling show that I can’t wait for audiences everywhere to see. It’s going to be a stunning spectacle full of the elegance, style and attitude befitting of the greatest divas’ legacies. And to be touring with two incredible friends in Janette and Katya is simply the dream team!”
