Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour to have sign language interpreter at all venues following Rose Ayling-Ellis’ historic win.



Strictly Come Dancing will have a BSL interpreter present in every venue of the show’s upcoming tour.

An announcement was made on social media today, explaining how the tour will be made more accessible.

The news comes after EastEnders actor Rose Ayling-Ellis became the first deaf contestant to take part in the glitzy dance show, before she went on to win with professional partner Giovanni Pernice.

The official Instagram account for the Strictly arena tour wrote:

‘BREAKING NEWS! We are delighted to announce that a registered BSL Interpreter will be provided for every venue and performance of the tour, making this the biggest ever BSL accessible arena tour in the UK.’

They explained that ‘the interpreter will be displayed on two very large screens either side of the stage area,’ allowing attendees to ‘book tickets and sit almost anywhere in the arena to enjoy the experience with family and friends.’
