Strictly Come Dancing | Launch Show Preview (BBC One)

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman return to the ballroom for the launch of Strictly Come Dancing 2021.



Dusting off their paddles will be returning judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse, alongside the newest addition to the panel, Strictly longest-serving professional dancer Anton Du Beke.


On the night, 15 brand new celebrities will be paired with their professional partners before taking to the floor for the first time in a huge group number.




There are two incredible routines from the Strictly professionals, one of which will introduce you to our four brand new dancers. Not to be missed is the return of reigning champion Bill Bailey and a spectacular music performance from Anne Marie.


It’s time to start dancing! Strictly Come Dancing launches Saturday 18th September on BBC One.
