Can I be in the Strictly It Takes Two audience? How do I get tickets?
The Friday show is filmed with a live studio audience – and anyone was in with a shot at ending up in the studio.
Last year, there were three separate random draws for tickets, with each draw for a block of three or four dates.
Unfortunately, there was no way to apply for a specific date, but those winning the draw were allocated one of the dates in the block.
No details on the draw are available yet.
