Strictly Confidential at The Lowry from July 8-11 will give fans a peek into the world of the hit BBC series, getting up close and personal with stars Lisa Riley, Ian Waite, Artem Chigvintsev and Natalie Lowe.

From the producers of the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour and written and directed by TV judge Craig Revel Horwood, the show tells Lisa Riley’s personal story going from soap star to Strictly.

Lisa, who was born in Bury and trained at the Oldham Theatre Workshop from the age of nine, played Mandy Dingle in Emmerdale for more than six years.

She says: “I’m really looking forward to keeping my dancing shoes on throughout 2013. To have come this far with Strictly has been a dream come true, so to continue touring and tell my story along the way is fantastic.”
