Can I be in the Strictly It Takes Two audience? How do I get tickets?

The Friday show is filmed with a live studio audience – and anyone is in with a shot at ending up in the studio.

This year, there will be three separate random draws for tickets, with each draw for a block of three or four dates.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to apply for a specific date, but if you win the draw you’ll be allocated one of the dates in the block.

The second of three random draws is open until 4pm on Wednesday October 4.

The dates available in the second random block are:

  • Friday 27 October
  • Friday 3 November
  • Friday 10 November
  • Friday 17 November

You can apply for a maximum of two tickets here, on the BBC website, where you’ll also be able to apply for the final block of tickets when they are released.
