THE Strictly Come Dancing 2022 tour has just kicked off, and celebrity dancers Maisie Smith and Tilly Ramsay dazzled the crowd in their golden outfits.
The two young dancers – who have become close pals since the tour – were snapped posing up a storm as they donned glamorous dresses to grace the ballroom floor.
Tonight marked the opening night of the highly-anticipated tour, as the class of Strictly Come Dancing 2021 embark on a 22-date tour of the UK.
From January 20 to 23, the dancers will perform in Birmingham, before heading to Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool and Glasgow.
They’ll then head to Nottingham before finishing off at London’s O2 arena.
Strictly 2020 finalist Maisie, 20, is filling in for 2021 finalist AJ Odudu, after she was forced to pull out of both the competition and the tour due to a painful ankle injury.
The ex-EastEnders actress is overjoyed to be on the tour though, and has since become best pals with semi-finalist Tilly, also 20.
The pair graced the stage earlier this evening for a photocall with the rest of the Strictly ladies, and posed up a storm in their metallic dresses.
The pair were joined in the snaps by Dragon’s Den star Sara Davies – who also looked incredible in a golden dress.
Rose Ayling Ellis was also present, and dazzled in a champagne-hued tassel jumpsuit.
And Strictly It Takes Two host Janette Manrara was also there, looking stunning in a bold silver plunge jumpsuit.
Earlier on Thursday, Tilly and Maisie were pictured heading to rehearsals, dressing in their casual wear.
Both had coordinated their outfits, opting for baby blue and pastel pink hues.
Tilly had a matching blue tracksuit from ethical brand Pangaia, pairing them with some University Blues Nike Dunks.
Maisie opted for a 90s throwback, with a pink Juicy Couture tracksuit and some huge pink slippers.
