This year’s Strictly Come Dancing series is on the horizon, with a flurry of celebs set to put their dancing skills to the test as part of the BBC show. The popular programme will return to television with its launch episode on September 16.
A beloved tradition of the show, the launch episode sees the celebrity contestants introduced to their dance partners offering a sneak peek into the world of glitz and sequins viewers can expect in the coming weeks.
