Last month, the mum of two thrilled her 802k Instagram followers with a sneak peek into her brand-new wardrobe for the 20th series of the hit show. We saw bright bodycon Victoria Beckham couture, feathers and sequins!

Tess has had a whale of a time in her wardrobe fittings leading up to Friday evenings series premiere. She captioned one of her Instagram posts: "Strictly season has begun! …and so has the first fitting! Catch me in sparkles from now until 2023", with a winky face emoji.

The new series of the dance competition was due to return to screens on Saturday 17 September, days before Queen Elizabeth II's. However as a mark of respect to the late monarch, the first episode aired on Friday 23 September, and tomorrow brings the first live show which fans are keenly looking forward to.
