Strictly Come Dancing

Hooray – Strictly's back! Here's the launch show…

It’s finally that time of year! Yes, you’re about to be inexplicably outraged by missing fleckerls and ugly hands as we become a nation of ballroom experts once again. And stand by for a sudden urge to fill your wardrobe with sequins!

As has become tradition, tonight’s launch show will formally introduce us to 15 new celebs lining up to be criticised by Craig Revel Horwood (let’s see how Mr Nasty copes with Judge Rinder…), while they are paired with their professional partners.

Plus, there’ll be a (usually slightly chaotic) group dance from the newbies, stunning routines by the pros and musical interludes with Olly Murs and Rebecca Ferguson.

We cannot wait!
