‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is a celebrity-pro ballroom dance competition, which launched on BBC One in 2004. It’s inspired by former BBC show ‘Come Dancing’, and shares its name with 1992 film ‘Strictly Ballroom’. Being one of the most popular shows on TV, it goes head-to-head with ITV’s ‘The X Factor’ from September to December every year on Saturday and Sunday nights. It was originally hosted by Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly, but Claudia Winkleman has taken over from the veteran entertainer since he stepped down in 2014. The current judges are Craig Revel-Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Bruno Tonioli, while Alesha Dixon and Arlene Phillips have both previously sat on the panel, while Len Goodman stood down as Head Judge in 2016, with his replacement still to be announced. The show is gearing up for its 15th series, with last year's competition won by BBC sports presenter Ore Oduba and his partner Joanne Clifton. They followed in the footsteps of previous winners like Jay McGuiness, Caroline Flack, Louis Smith, Alesha Dixon, Harry Judd and Abbey Clancy. The 2016 series saw the departure of professional dancers Ola Jordan, Aliona Vilani, Tristan McManus, Kristina Rhianoff and Gleb Savchenko, who all quit the show. Among the current line-up are Brendan Cole, Anton DuBeke, Natalie Lowe, Kevin and Karen Clifton and Pasha Kovalev. Last year's contestants included Ed Balls, Will Young, Laura Whitmore, Daisy Lowe, Melvin Odoom and Louise Redknapp. Rumoured for the 2017 series are Samatha Womack, Gogglebox's Steph and Dom Parker, Ellie Simmonds and Joe Wicks the Body Coach.
