Fans of Strictly Come Dancing will get the chance to see one of the hit BBC show’s new professionals when Giovanni Pernice brings his latest tour to Potters Bar.

Giovanni, who partnered celebrity Debbie McGee to last year’s Strictly final, will be appearing at the Wyllyotts Theatre on Monday, July 9 in his red-hot Born To Win show.

And the audience in Potters Bar will see one of Strictly Come Dancing’s three new pros in the show.

Joining Strictly’s favourite Italian star will be his leading lady Luba Mushtuk, who will join the SCD pros for the new series.

After the huge success of his debut tour Dance is Life in 2017, which included a date at the Hawthorne Theatre in Welwyn Garden City, Giovanni is extremely happy to be back out on the road with Born to Win.

He says the show is “even bigger and even better”, and audiences definitely seem to agree, with Born to Win earning rave reviews so far.

Born to Win tells the story of Giovanni’s life, from growing up in Sicily and learning to dance, to his time on the hit BBC TV show, and features the hot Paso Doble, the sexy Salsa, the gorgeous Viennese Waltz, and the passionate Rumba, to name just a few.

The show, headlined by Giovanni, sees the return of Luba Mushtuk and Dancing with Stars Ireland professionals Kai Widdrington, Giulia Dotta, Curtis Pritchard, and Emily Barker, who all starred in Dance is Life.

They are joined by Stephen Vincent and Kylee Brown, who have both performed around the world in the phenomenal stage show Burn The Floor.

Choreographed by Strictly Come Dancing’s creative director Jason Gilkison and produced by Strictly Theatre Co, Born to Win is a show that is guaranteed to get your feet tapping and pulses racing.

Tickets are on sale directly through the theatre or at

There are also a limited number of VIP tickets available, where people can meet Giovanni before the show, get a signed print and have photo opportunities.

Tickets for the Wyllyotts tour date cost £30, £29 concessions, and VIP £50.
