Strictly star Karen Hauer to Come Dancing in Grimsby
SHE may be out of Strictly, but Karen Hauer is inviting Grimsby residents to Come Dancing just the same.
As reported, the star, who has been partnering Westlife heartthrob Nicky Byrne, will perform at Clifton's Dance Academy's dinner dance at the Humber Royal Hotel, in Littlecoates Road.
This time she will be taking to the floor with her boyfriend, Kevin Clifton – the son of Academy owners, Keith and Judy – for a Latin American cabaret dance.
And it is sure to go better than last night, which saw she and Byrne leave the hit BBC show after failing to impress the judges with a fusion of samba and American foxtrot.

Dancing to Olly Murs and Flo Rida's Troublemaker, the pair performed an energetic routine that saw Nicky sliding across the floor on his knees.
But after being forced into a dance-off with Denise Van Outen and James Jordan, the judges tonight voted unanimously to kick Nicky, a former youth team footballer with Leeds United, off the show.
Nicky, the ninth celebrity to leave the show, said: ''It has been just so much fun. It is the biggest and best show in the world. 'Karen, every week, every day, has been incredible. We had a bit of a shaky start in terms of judges and stuff, but we just seemed to improve."
Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh topped last night's leaderboard with a perfect score of 40 points following her and partner Pasha Kovalev's effortless tango crossed with cha cha to The Weather Girls' hit It's Raining Men.
Tickets to the Clifton Dance Academy dinner dance are on sale now and cost £32.
