With the line-up for this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ still trickling through, producers have now confirmed the start date for the new series.
‘Strictly’ fans will be glued to their sets on Saturday, 3 September, when the new series’ launch show airs on BBC One, with the 14 celebrity contestants taking to the dance floor for the first time for a group number.
The launch show will also see the celebs discovering which of the 14 professional dancers they’ll be partnered with for the duration of their time in the competition, as well as a group number.
All four judges will be back to offer their critiques, though the new series will mark Len Goodman’s final year as Head Judge, while Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly will both be returning to take over presenting duties.
At the time of writing, 10 of this year’s ‘Strictly’ celebrities have been confirmed, with stars from all areas of the entertainment industry (and one politician) taking part.
