What has Aljaz done before the Strictly Come Dancing tour?

A masked and wet-haired Aljaz told his followers: “Before Scott does his magic! Guess where I am? Kitch hair.”

Later, he shared another clip showing off his chopped locks, with salon dog, Gaston.

Aljaz, who will dance with Sara Davies again on tour, jokingly claimed that the French bulldog finished the haircut.

He said: “This is after. Gaston, you did an amazing job.

“Scott started the haircut and Gaston finished it. I’m really pleased, thank you so much.”

Aljaz then gave Gaston a little kiss on one of his ears before laughing and saying the pooch was sleepy.

Ex-EastEnders star Maisie Smith will be dancing with Kai Widdrington after AJ Odudu’s ankle injury forced her to pull out.

Rose, who made history by being the show’s first ever deaf contestant, said of the upcoming tour: “I have loved every minute of my Strictly journey so far, so to be able to continue it on the live tour is so exciting.

“I can’t wait to perform live in front of all the fans who have supported me through this incredible series.”

Runners up, John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, will also be taking part.

The pair made history too by being the first all-male couple to compete in the BBC One dancing competition.

Sadly fans won’t be seeing 2021’s Dan Walker on tour.

Why is Dan Walker not on tour?

The BBC Breakfast host finished in fifth place with partner Nadiya Bychkova.

Following AJ’s announcement last week (Thursday 6 January) Dan jokingly hit out at Kai, asking why he hadn’t asked him to replace AJ.

With his tongue firmly in cheek, Dan commented on Kai’s Instagram post, in which he confirmed that he would be dancing with 2020 Strictly star, Maisie.

Dan commented on Kai’s picture of himself and Maisie and suggested that he should’ve been picked to fill AJ’s place instead.

Kai said: “I’m really gutted to hear that @ajodudu won’t be able to join me on the BBC Strictly Tour around the UK.

“I know we were both really focused and willing to get back on the floor in the arenas and finish what we started.

“I know we will get to dance again very soon and I am sending all my love and well wishes to AJ for a quick recovery.

“With that, I am also very lucky to say that I get to continue on the tour with my amazing new tour partner @maisiesmithofficial who as you all now SMASHED last year’s Strictly.

“I cannot wait to see you all on the road and get to dance in front of a live audience once again.”

Dan then askeD: “Errr… where was the call? #KaiAndDansShowdance could have been incredible.”
