Now they are heading out on the road for Dance to the Music.

The new production showcases every genre of dance from the roaring 20s to the present day.

Kristina, who has choreographed the show, said: “Dance To The Music is a totally new show with some breath-taking dance routines that I hope the audience will love.


“Chris and I have kept in touch ever since we left the Big Brother house and I’m really excited about working with him. As every fan of The X Factor will know, Chris has got a fantastic singing voice, and I’m very lucky to be joined by him.

“It’s a dance production like no other because it includes everything from tap and the Charleston, right through to modern Latin and Ballroom. There’s even Break-Dancing and Hip-Hop!”

Other dancers in the cast include Kristina’s former pro dance partner Robin Windsor, who did four years on Strictly.
