Russell Grant Joining Strictly's Flavia and Vincent in Midnight Tango

Russell Grant is currently playing Teen Angel in the tour of Grease the musical and is due to appear in panto in Peter Pan at Aylesbury over the Christmas and New Year period.

He is then reuniting with his Strictly Come Dancing partner Flavia Cacace when he joins her and Vincent Simone in their West End return of Midnight Tango which runs for a limited season at the Phoenix Theatre from 30th January to 2nd March 2013 prior to going on a UK tour which opens in Eastbourne on 13th March.

Grant will play Argentinian bar owner Carlos in the show and producer and former Strictly judge Arlene Phillips said: "Russell's partnership with Flavia is well known, but I too have had a dance partnership with Russell, which began with his appearance in the title role of The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium, followed by playing Teen Angel in the current national tour of Grease, and I'm delighted we now have a third partnership."

Phillips and co-producer Adam Spiegel also announced  that they are rescheduling the press night to tie in with Grant's birthday on 5th February.
