STAFF at Darlington Hippodrome are tuning in every weekend to Strictly Come Dancing to watch several stars appear live before the nation before they appear live at the venue.

Strictly Fever has struck staff as not only do they have the Head Judge of Strictly Come Dancing, Shirley Ballas, starring in their annual festive pantomime Jack and The Beanstalk but dance professional Giovanni Pernice, who is partnered with Michelle Visage, will be bringing his spectacular stage show, This Is Me, to town next June.

And comedian Chris Ramsay, who is partnered with Karen Hauer, has just announced another one-night date next October.

Shirley Ballas will appear as Mother Nature in Jack and the Beanstalk at Darlington Hippodrome from Friday, December 6 to Sunday, January 5 alongside Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson as Jack, comedian Phil Walker as Simple Simon and actor Daniel Taylor as the evil Fleshcreep.
