'Showtime' Postponed until 2022 Due To Covid-19

Hello everyone,

We hope this finds you and your families safe and well.

We're sure you've all been tuned in to the news with regard to the ongoing Covid pandemic, and how it's escalating once again across the country.

Safety always comes first, and after much discussion with our tour organiser Raymond Gubbay: we are all in agreement that we should, very sadly, postpone our 2021 'Showtime' tour until 2022.

Huge apologies - so sorry to be the bearer of such news, especially as we've all been looking forward to the tour so much! We've recorded a special message for you in the video above - do please play it.

If you've already purchased tickets, don't worry: the box office at the venue will be in touch to advise about new dates... and if you haven't already booked - no time like the present: treat yourself with something special for when all this is over!

We'll be back, there's no doubt about that - with a show that's bigger and better than ever before! ...And now that we've two years to practice, it'll be so worth the wait!

Meanwhile, take great care and stay safe and well.

Much love,

Anton & Erin

Strictly's Erin Boag reveals the real reason she's not on this year's show.

I can't keep it covered up any longer... There's been much speculation about my absence from this year's Strictly Come Dancing, but I can now reveal the real reason why I turned down appearing on this year's show... Yes, I'm truly excited and delighted to say… I'm pregnant!

My husband Peter and I are expecting the arrival of our first child in the spring of next year. It's such a relief to be able to tell all, as it's been 'strictly mum's the word' these past few months! Another reason for being so quiet is that I have been battling with terrible morning sickness – I don't know why it's called "morning" sickness as I had it morning, noon and night!!!

My career is such an important part of my life, however with ten series of Strictly under my belt, it just felt the right time.

Before baby arrives, amongst other things, Anton and I will be performing at the Royal Albert Hall this Christmas with 'Anton & Erin's Christmas Cracker' (I'm sure those gorgeous gowns might need a bit of letting-out by then!).

As some of you will know, Anton and I have been fortunate to perform our sell-out UK tours for the past five years but for obvious reasons I won't be able to perform this time - though I will be helping Anton prepare for, and supporting him on his solo tour which launches early next year.

And after baby's born?... I'll be back dancing just as soon as my body and fitness allows! Anton and I already have bookings in place for next year, and I'm particularly delighted to say we're planning a big come-back tour for 2015! So there's plenty to look forward to, as you all now know – especially the pitter-patter of tiny feet too.

Be sure to keep up with my news on my personal blog and by following me on twitter!

Lots of love,
