The stars of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing showed off their moves for the first time on Monday night at the official launch of the series.
The 15 new celebrities came together with the professional dancers, presenters and judges at a special event outside the former BBC Television Centre in west London.
Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing, Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley, presenter Anneka Rice, Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin, footballer David James and EastEnders star Emma Barton were among those shaking their thing on stage.
Also putting their best foot forward were YouTuber Saffron Barker, BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell, Olympian James Cracknell, comedian Chris Ramsey, chef Viscountess Weymouth, Paralympian Will Bayley, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual and sports pundit Alex Scott.
Notably absent though was Drag Race star Michelle Visage, who was not pictured at the event.
The pair announced the end of their six-year marriage earlier this month, which followed Katya’s infamous kiss with dance partner Seann Walsh during the last series.
The contestants will come together again later this week to film the second part of the special launch show, which is where they will discover who their professional partner will be.
They will then have two weeks to train together before taking to the floor for the first time as the competition officially kicks off.
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One on Saturday 7 September.
