Strictly Come Dancing's 2020 professional dancers have been announced, and fans can expect all of our favourites returning to the dance-floor later this year.
Strictly will be back on BBC One this autumn, with the dancer line-up has been revealed as AJ Pritchard, Aljaž Škorjanec, Amy Dowden, Anton Du Beke, Dianne Buswell, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Janette Manrara, Johannes Radebe, Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova, Nancy Xu, Neil Jones, and Oti Mabuse.
Sarah James, Executive Producer, BBC Studios, said: "It's wonderful to welcome back so many talented individuals within this year's line-up of Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers. They are each at the top of their game and as a cast are simply incredible. We can’t wait to see what magic they will bring to the ballroom this year.
"Strictly 2020 promises to be an unforgettable series, with more exceptional choreography and world-class dancing."
Kate Phillips, Controller of BBC Entertainment, added: "We are very proud of Strictly Come Dancing and our professional dancers.

Former dancer Kevin Clifton - who won the series last year with celebrity partner Stacey Dooley - recently confirmed that he was leaving the show after seven years.
The 37-year-old star announced the news on Twitter, revealing that he was stepping down to focus on other aspects of his career.
"The past seven years have been some of the most wonderful of my life,"Kevin posted.
"I am grateful to the BBC and Strictly Come Dancing for giving me the opportunity to have been part of something truly special."
The BBC added that further announcements and information, including which dancers will be partnered with celebrity contestants, will be announced in due course.
The celebrity line-up is already being rumoured to include reality star Jamie Laing after he pulled out of the competition last year due to a foot injury.
The judging panel of Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood are expected to return next year too.
Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One.
