The last season of Strictly Come Dancing may now be a distant memory, but Brendan Cole is currently leaving audiences shaken and stirred as part of a national tour.

Following on from his debut theatre tour, Live and Unjudged, the dancer has launched another new show, Licence to Thrill, which he is taking to theatres around the country.

The show, which will arrive at Milton Keynes Theatre tomorrow at 7.30pm, will include the talents of Brendan as well as 20 musicians and dancers performing together on stage.

As well as some ballroom magic, there will also be some Latin sequences, all set to a range of favourite musical numbers from across the ages.

Dance fans will recognise Brendan from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, which he has been involved with since the show began a decade ago.

Last year he was paired up with gold-winning Olympic cyclist, Victoria Pendleton, although the couple failed to clinch first place in the 2012 competition.

The 36-year-old, who recently became a father, was born in New Zealand, but moved to the UK when he was 18 and achieved competition success with his former professional dance partner, Camilla Dallerup.

Tickets cost between £25.50 and £33.50. To book, log on to
