Strictly Come Dancing: The Spectacular cancelled due to poor ticket sales
Strictly Come Dancing: The Spectacular has been cancelled after poor ticket sales upon release.
The exhibition, which had been due to take place at London’s ExCel Centre in June, promised fans the ultimate Strictly experience with the opportunity to get up close to the show’s professionals, judges and hosts. The event was set to feature a host of stars from the series, as well as a 90-minute theatre show from Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli.
However, it has now been confirmed on Twitter that the spectacular will not go ahead.
It is with regret that Strictly Come Dancing : The Spectacular has been cancelled. Ticket holders will get a full refund. Any queries DM us.

“Ticket holders will get a full refund.”
A statement on the BBC Worldwide website also read: “It is with regret that Strictly Come Dancing: The Spectacular has been cancelled.
“Demand for this event has not been as strong as we had hoped so we’ve taken the difficult decision to cancel it.”
A large number of celebrities from the show had been set to appear on the day with the likes of Tess Daly, Zoe Ball and Gethin Jones, Gorka Marquez, Neil Jones, Katya Jones, AJ Pritchard, Chloe Hewitt and Oksana Platero all joining the judges in the 90-minute show.
Strictly Come Dancing will return later this year to BBC One.
