Strictly Come Dancing stars Kai Widdrington and Nadiya Bychkova have teased their new stage show, which begins next year.

The couple, who are both professional dancers on the hit BBC show, will be taking to the stage for their Behind the Magic tour in June 2024.

In a new first-look video posted to Instagram, the dancers shared exclusive clips of how the show will come together. "Join us for our brand new show 'Behind the Magic', giving our fans a rare glimpse behind the curtain to see how the magic comes together!", they wrote in the caption.

"'Behind the Magic' will be touring across the UK in June 2024! Book NOW in our bio link!" In the video, Nadiya said: "Get ready for an epic show. We can't wait to see you there."

Kai and Nadiya announced their upcoming tour earlier this week (October 23), which kicks off on June 1, 2024 in Gateshead, finishing later that month on June 30 in Southampton. Behind the Magic marks the dancing duo's second UK tour after their previous Once Upon a Time tour.

Tickets went on general sale today (October 27), following the Ticketmaster pre-sale which took place on Thursday (October 26).

Nadiya is without a celebrity partner in this year's Strictly, while Kai is competing with broadcaster Angela Rippon. Nadiya recently spoke exclusively to Digital Spy at Best's Heroes Awards (October 18), where she confessed that she's been helping the couple with their routines.

"Me and Kai create a lot together, so the routines and everything," she said. "He'll ask me what I think and as a female what will be most comfortable and obviously I see from a female point of view.

"I'll say: 'Well, those legs are very beautiful, so why don't we put this here?' and I add my little touches whenever he asks and I can see something to help."

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturdays and Sundays on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Tickets for Strictly's 2024 live arena tour are available now.
