Keep dancing!

It’s returning sooner than you think.

Strictly Come Dancing is returning to our screens in a matter of weeks.

The beloved dance show is set to launch its 20th series on September 10th.

The launch show will be filmed on September 7th. We’re just weeks away from finding out who will be taking part in this year’s series. The BBC has kept this year’s line-up tightly sealed, but we cannot wait to find out who will be attempting the Cha Cha Cha come September.

The BBC promised the 20th series of Strictly will be one of the best yet, especially because it marks quite the milestone.

“Dust off your dancing shoes, Strictly Come Dancing is back!”

“The stunning 20th series returns, bringing glamour and show-stopping dancing back to Saturday nights on BBC One.

“And we’re extremely excited to be able to welcome an audience back to the studio for this year’s shows.”

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will return to hosting duties this year.

Judges Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas, Anton du Beke, and Craig Revel Horwood will also return.

Earlier this year, Bruno Tonioli confirmed he will not be returning to Strictly Come Dancing. He has instead decided to focus on his career in America where he is a judge on Dancing with the Stars.

Numerous professional dancers also left the show after series 19, including fan-favourite Oti Mabuse, who won the show twice.

Luckily, some familiar faces will be returning including Giovanni Pernice, Amy Dowden, Karen Hauer and Johannes Radebe.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC 1 on September 10th.
