Strictly stars Anton and Giovanni bring their Him & Me show to the Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent, on Saturday 15 July 2023.

“Top of their class”

Blackpool Gazette

Him & Me showcases the duo’s unrivalled rapport, bringing audiences a collaboration of dance, song and light-hearted fun!

The tour was the very first to go out to a full capacity sold out audience in 2021 when restrictions were lifted, with another sold out run in 2022. And now, this uplifting, feel-good show returns in 2023… audiences just can’t get enough!

Anton loves the show, he says ‘The show has something for everyone – from children to great grandparents, everyone will love it. Big show stopping group numbers, big cast, loads of glitz, loads of energy, singing, dancing, lights… that’s right up my street.’

Giovanni adds, ‘Musical theatre mixed with Ballroom and Latin, plus some amazing singers, really makes it a great show. And, of course, there is so much fun between myself and Anton. We always go off script, which the audiences love!’

‘The Producer doesn’t!’, adds Anton with a cheeky grin.

“A Celebration of Dance”

Northampton Chronicle & Echo

Du Beke has been part of the Strictly family since the very first series back in 2004, partnering an array of celebrities over they years, his most memorable partnership being with former MP Ann Widdecombe (who may even make a cheeky appearance on the Him & Me tour!) – a match made in comedic heaven!

Having won the hearts of millions of dancing fans across the country, he took a step to the other side of the judging table for series 18 in 2021, taking up the role temporarily. He was so popular, he has now been made a permanent judge on the show.

Pernice, in his own words, ‘always the bridesmaid…never the bride’, had all his dreams come true when finally became the champion in 2021 with his celebrity partner, Rose Ayling-Ellis. The pair made history throughout the series with Rose being the first ever deaf contestant on the show and they went on to win; plus their iconic show dance where they danced in complete silence – an historic moment that they won a BAFTA for.


East Midlands Theatre

Him & Me! is directed by West End star Alan Burkitt, who has performed in shows including Curtains with Jason Manford and Ore Oduba, Top Hat and We Will Rock You. Alan has also choreographed for shows Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance?, as well as the UK theatre tour Fascinating Aida and Giovanni’s smash-hit 2022 tour This Is Me.

Joined by a world class cast of dancers and singers, Anton and Giovanni are coming together to put on the show to end all shows – the ultimate entertaining night out!

The Ballroom King and judge extraordinaire, and the BAFTA winner and Jive Master bring you Him & Me! – a true dance extravaganza for all ages.
