Anton and his co-star pros Giovanni Pernice and Aljaz Skorjanec will be joining forces to teach Strictly fans some steps in a special workshop, giving keen ballroom dancers the chance to interact with them while getting a lesson.

Previous contestants Jake Wood and Anita Rani will be among the famous faces appearing in a “My Strictly Journey” exhibit, in which they will discuss their experiences from novice to dancing aficionados.

There will also be fashion shows, a make-up and hair tutorial from the Strictly beauty team and a tea dance, with the opportunity to take a twirl with one of the Strictly pro dancers.
