Strictly Come Dancing stars have announced a West End run for their dance show Here Come the Boys.

Here Come the Boys will play a limited season at the London Palladium from 25 May to 9 June with tickets on sale now. Capacity at the theatre will be reduced to follow social distancing guidelines.

The show will star Strictly professionals past and present Aljaž Škorjanec, Pasha Kovalev, Graziano di Prima and Robin Windsor throughout its run. Former Strictly Come Dancing celebrity finalist Karim Zeroual will present the show. They will be joined by guest star, Strictly professional Nadiya Bychkova.

Here Come The Boys will see the Strictly superstars battle it out against a cutting-edge soundtrack of dance-floor anthems, club classics and guilty pleasures to be named our ‘King of the Dance’ by audience members.

Shows will take place Wednesdays to Sundays at 7:30PM with matinees on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30PM.

Tickets and more information are available online here.

Aljaz said: “I can’t wait to battle it out with these boys and let the audience decide as there can only be one King of the Dance!”

Robin Windsor enthused: “I am going head to head with four great dancers to see who might be crowned King of the Dance and I can’t wait! Its full-on dance!’

Pasha added: “It’s a dance marathon and only one of us will end up as King of the Dance… and of course, that’s going to be me!”

Graziano Di Prima commented: “I’d heard how incredible the show was back in 2019 so am super excited to be involved in this brand new production. We’ll be opening in London’s West End with great friends and my lovely fiance Giada Lini…what could be better!”

And Karim added: “I’ll be hosting the show, spinning some records and showing off a few of my tricks. I have a few surprises up my sleeve that the audience won’t be expecting!”
