Tuesday night saw the airing of the first trailer for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.

They danced in unison along to the melodic sounds of Feeling Good, with the men all donning smart black suits.

Viewers will discover this year’s Strictly pairings during the pre-recorded launch show, which is set to air on 17th September.

The fifteen couples will then head to the training room, with their debut performance set to air during the first Strictly live show on September 24.

The pairs will then deliver a second performance the following week when the public vote will open, before a results show on Sunday reveals which two pairs received the fewest votes and must compete in the dance off.

The judges will then decide which couple they would like to save, and the other pair will be eliminated. 

This series has also seen the introduction of four new professionals, European cup winner Vito Coppola, Chinese National Champion Carlos Gu, former Under 21 British National Champion Lauren Oakley and Latin dance champion Michelle Tsiakkas. 

This series will be the first in three years to be broadcast without Covid measures, which forced bosses to introduce restrictions including ‘bubbles’ for training and limited audience numbers.

Series 20 of Strictly will see its stars celebrate 100 years of the BBC with a special themed week this year. 

To mark the centenary, the Strictly couples will either dance ‘to a theme tune from an iconic BBC programme or in tribute to one of the BBC’s most-loved services’.

The anniversary show is also set to feature two special routines by the professionals – one will honour the BBC’s Natural History Programming unit, while the other will see the dancers ‘crashing’ some flagship shows.

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday September 17 on BBC One and iPlayer.
