The one-off show will celebrate 100 years of the BBC and will be recorded at the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom in November, 2022.

The BBC themed episode will see Strictly couples “either dancing to a theme tune from an iconic BBC programme or in tribute to one of the BBC’s most-loved services”, according to the BBC.

Memorable Strictly moments from the Tower Ballroom over the years include 2016’s entrance by former shadow chancellor Ed Balls, who was lowered from the ceiling playing a piano before taking to the dance floor to jive with Katya Jones to the Jerry Lee Lewis hit Great Balls Of Fire.

Another talked-about Blackpool moment includes Ann Widdecombe’s Samba alongside professional partner Anton Du Beke in 2010, which saw the pair both dressed in bright yellow and resulted in the former Tory MP earning the night’s lowest score of 13 out of 40.

How to get Strictly Come Dancing Blackpool tickets

Due to a high demand for tickets and the limited number of seats in the studio, the BBC is restricting the number of tickets and dates that fans are eligible for.

You can apply for a maximum of one pair of tickets for this recording. You will also need to be the named ticket holder and if successful your tickets are non-transferable.

There is an age limit of 14 years old to be aware of too and under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Please note, if you’re successful in getting tickets for the live shows that record at Elstree Film Studios in London you cannot also be successful in the random draw for Blackpool.

The BBC Shows and Tours website adds: “If you have already applied for tickets for Blackpool and received confirmation of application for this recording, your application is still valid and you do not need to apply again.”
