Strictly Come Dancing tickets 2022: how to get tickets to be in the live studio audience

BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing is almost upon us - here’s how you can get a seat in the audience for the live shows.

The UK’s most beloved dance show is soon back on television for its 20th season, and BBC One is once again welcoming audiences back to the live shows.

Strictly Come Dancing, hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, will be filmed in the Elstree Film and Television Studios in London and in Blackpool for a one-off special.

The Blackpool live show will see the celebrities, judges and hosts cha-chaing their way back to Blackpool Tower Ballroom after a two year absence.

It will celebrate 100 years of the BBC and will see Strictly couples “either dancing to a theme tune from an iconic BBC programme or in tribute to one of the BBC’s most-loved services”, according to the BBC.

This year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing will feature names such as Loose Women’s Kaye Adams, musician Matt Goss and comedian Ellie Taylor.

Here is everything you need to know about how to get ticketsto be in the live studio audience for Strictly Come Dancing 2022.
