Robin was a member of Strictly’s professional line-up from 2009 to 2013, alongside stars including Patsy Kensit and Deborah Meaden.

He was found dead in a London hotel at the age of 44 in February and his cause of death has not yet been revealed.

During Friday’s episode of Loose Women, Graziano, Nancy and Gorka discussed their plans to pay tribute to him on the tour.

Gorka told the show: “I think we’re a family and the loss of Robin who was part of that family… he was just a wonderful person. He was always smiling.

“I have memories of him smiling when it came to the show, it was positive things for all of us. The least we can do is celebrate him because wherever he is up there he will be dancing with We.

Graziano added: “I have great memories of him. We did a tour together, we did lifts and all that and sometimes you get hurt.

“He would always be the last person to leave the room, even if he was in great pain. Surprisingly, I made my rounds, one of my shirts was his pink shirt and it said “Robin”.

“Every time I wore it, I got goosebumps. It was a very beautiful memory. I’m always thinking about him.

Strictly The Professionals Tour will take place in Birmingham, Blackpool, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cardiff, Conwy County Borough and Edinburgh.

Glasgow, Hull, Liverpool, Nottingham, Oxford, Plymouth, Salford, Sheffield, Stockton, Sunderland, Swansea and Wolverhampton.
