The string of arena dates begins later this month and will see John and Rose take to the floor in front of a live audience.

Before the tour kicks off, the stars of the series are back together rehearsing and getting their moves ready for big crowds.

And John has shared a video of himself alongside Johannes as they got to work – and he had some news.

“Oh look who I found,” John said as took a break from practising his dance moves.

Panning the camera to find Johannes, the dancer waved and said hello before John declared: “We’re back together again!”

An unimpressed Johannes then added: “Well, we should be dancing,” to which John shared: “We should be dancing but I’m not only dancing with Johannes this time on tour.

“I’ve got to dance with a girl and another boy.”

Turning the camera back to Johannes, John asked: “How do you feel about that Jo?” as his partner showed his faux outrage.

John didn’t reveal exactly who his new dance partners will be but what we do know is that the original pairing will be performing their Pirates of the Caribbean paso doble and their uplifting showdance on the tour.
