Now that Brendan Cole and his partner Sophie Ellis Bextor have finished their stint on Strictly Come Dancing, the dancer is turning all his attention to his live show, Licence To Thrill, which is currently touring the UK. It has proved to be so popular, it has extended.

A night of Ballroom and Latin magic awaits in this, his tribute to the style of Bond, with music from across the decades and dances that will have audiences feeling like they've been a part of something very special. Licence To Thrill is the eagerly anticipated follow up to his debut theatre tour Live and Unjudged, which Cole has toured the UK with for the past 3 years.

Cole says: "Live and Unjudged was my debut theatre show, I loved every second of it and was very proud of all that we achieved with it. With the new tour it's very exciting as there will be a new cast, new choreography, new costumes, new music and putting that all together is a challenge but something I really enjoy doing.''

The Waltzes and Foxtrots will take audiences on an emotional journey of beauty and sophistication while the fast paced Quicksteps, Tangos and American Smooths will simply take their breath away. The excitement of the Latin dances with the likes of Cha Cha, Samba, Salsa and Jive is designed to have people itching to get up and join in right there in their seats while enjoying all of the passion of a dance show.

Cole is joined by his brother and many other dancers - well known to viewers of Strictly.

"My brother Scott is one of my dancers and he brings something very unique to the evening," Cole adds. "I also have Crystal Main, who has appeared on Strictly Come Dancing.

Licence to Thrill plays Manchester and Liverpool this weekend, followed by Grimsby, Folkstone, Sunderland, Oxford, Woking, Stoke and Torquay. For more tour dates, visit Brendan Cole's website.
