Money-Can’t Buy Publicity
When Blackpool Tower Ballroom plays host to the hugely popular show, it also gives money-can’t-buy publicity to our wonderful seaside town.
In 2017 the competition attracted the highest audiences since the show began in 2004. 13.6m people tuned in to see Joe McFadden win Strictly Come Dancing at Blackpool Tower Ballroom, beating Alexandra Burke, Debbie McGee and Gemma Atkinson.
In the ratings-busting show, scenes from the glorious Ballroom are cut with footage filmed in the resort. Each year the professional dancers and celebrities spend time out and about, enjoying the sights and the sounds.
Meanwhile, out on the streets of Blackpool, celebrity-spotters and photographers alike get into the spirit. Catching a glimpse of celebrities and a shot of one of the contestants is an annual thing! The whole Strictly experience creates a buzz in the town and an interest among everyone during the preceding week, spreading the excitement far and wide!
