Strictly Come Dancing star Karen Hauer to perform in Grimsby
STRICTLY Come Dancing star Karen Hauer will perform in Grimsby in what could be her first dance after leaving the show.
The star, who dances with Westlife heartthrob, Nicky Byrne, will perform at Clifton's Dance Academy's dinner dance at the Humber Royal Hotel, in Littlecoates Road, next week – and tickets are available now.
She will perform a Latin American cabaret dance with her boyfriend, Kevin Clifton, who is the son of Academy owners, Keith and Judy.
Last week, Karen and Nicky were in the bottom two for their Argentinian Tango – the second time they have been in danger of the boot – which means they are in danger of leaving the show this week.

Keith is thrilled Karen will dance after the dinner and hopes Strictly fans will come out and show their support for her.
He said: "This week might be the last week she is in the competition but we are really hoping it isn't. She is doing incredibly well for her first season and to still be in the top six acts out of 14 is fantastic.
"We think her Argentinian Tango last week was exceptional and they were totally under-marked. All dance teachers up and down the country would say the same.
"Now it will only take dropping one or half a mark and they will be in the bottom two again, but that is the competition."
The evening will be held on Sunday, December 16, from 7pm for the meal at 7.30pm, after which, Karen and Kevin will take to the floor and perform a Latin American dance which has been choreographed by Kevin, who also works for the BBC show.
The results – made up of the public votes and judges' marks – are aired to the public on Sunday after being pre-recorded after the live dances on the Saturday – meaning Karen could be dancing in Grimsby on the night she leaves the show.
Or if she goes this week, it could be among her first public performances.
Keith continued: "We are looking forward to having Kevin and Karen home. We don't get to see them very often so it will be nice to see them. We are sure the dinner dance will be a really wonderful evening filled with Christmas cheer.
"We hope everyone who loves the show will come and join us watch them dance together."
