Adjust your TVs to the glitter – Strictly Come Dancing is back for a 19th series.
The series returned on Saturday, September 18, with each celebrity associated with their professional dancer. The first live show will follow this weekend, the saturday 25 september. From next weekend, October 2 and 3, the live broadcast on Saturday will be accompanied by the broadcast of the results on Sunday.
Far from the dance floor, everything changes, with the biggest disruption of the show’s format in years. The jury will still be composed of Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas, but Bruno Tonioli will be replaced by Anton Du Beke. (More on this below.)
And there are four new professional dancers joining the 15 competitors. Kai Widdrington, Nikita Kuzmin, Cameron Lombard, Jowita Przystal will be trampled on. Meanwhile, after a decade as the host, Zoe Ball is set to be replaced by former professional dancer Janette Manrara on Strictly: It Takes Two.
So who is lined up for tango on our TVs this fall and who have they been partnered with?
Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden
