Want to experience Strictly in person? Here’s how you can apply for tickets to watch all the action from the studio audience.

The dancers! The lights! The sequins! Dave Arch and his band! For any Strictly Come Dancing fan, attending a taping of the show in person would be a dream come true.

2017’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing will be the hit show’s 15th series. Celebrities such as Alexandra Burke, Debbie McGee and Simon Rimmer will be lacing up their dancing shoes.

There will also be three new professional dancers this year. Following the departures of Natalie Lowe, Oksana Platero and Joanne Clifton, Dianne Buswell, Nadia Bychkova and Amy Dowden are being added to the roster of professional dancers.
