The 19th series of Strictly Come Dancing is just around the corner, and as launch day approaches, we’ve been treated to three new official photos revealing all the professional dancers taking part in this year’s series.

The photos show all 18 dancers dressed in gold, black and silver standing on the ballroom stage. Joining the seasoned professionals are newcomers Cameron Lombard, Kai Widdrington, Nikita Kuzmin and Jowita Przystal.

The new dancers have had plenty of experience on television, with Nikita serving as a professional dancer on Let's Dance Germany, Kai making the finals of Britain's Got Talent and serving as a pro on Dancing with the Stars Ireland, and Jowita winning The Greatest Dancer.

Reigning champ Oti Mabuse, who won series 18 dancing alongside Bill Bailey and series 17 with Kelvin Fletcher, is seen in one of her usual glitzy numbers, as she stands between Graziano Di Prima and Nancy Xu.

Strictly favourite Aljaz Skorjanec is at the centre of the photo, with Karen Haeur on his right, Katya Jones and Johannes Radebe – who was most recently seen on Celebrity Masterchef – on his left.

During the launch episode, which is presenter by Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly, professional dancers are paired with one of the 15 celebrities in the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 lineup.

This year we'll be treated to dances from singer Tom Fletcher, presenter AJ Odudu, Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies, actor Greg Wise and Great British Bake Off star John Whaite, who is making history by being one half of the show’s first ever male same-sex partnership.

Strictly Come Dancing starts on BBC1 on Saturday 18 September.
