She said: “Strictly has been the adventure of a lifetime and I’m so happy it’s continuing next year on the live tour.
“I can’t wait to see fans across the country and perform my favorite dances from the show.”
Fleur, who is still associated with Vito Coppola, added: “I am absolutely delighted to have the chance to return in these fabulous sequined outfits.”
The tour, presented by Janette Manrara, will also feature judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke on 32 dates.
On a Saturday night, Countryfile’s Hamza Yassin, TV presenter Helen Skelton, children’s TV presenter Molly Rainford and singer Fleur East battled it out for the top spot.
But it was Hamza who was crowned the winner of Strictly Come Dancing after a hotly contested final.
The four finalists took the stage tonight with three routines, Judge’s Choice, their favorite dance from the show, and a dance performance.
Hamza had cried several times during the final, and he was quick to burst into tears after Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman announced his name alongside professional partner Jowita Przystał.
When asked how he felt, he replied, “Words can’t describe how I feel.”
He then turned to Jowita and said she was “an angel in human disguise” before adding that it was “the best thing that ever happened to her”.
