The Launch Show

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman launch the new series of Strictly, with glitz and glamour all the way. The journey begins as the red carpet is rolled out to greet the 15 stars before the nail-biting moment when they discover who their dancing partners will be. The couples then take to the dance floor to perform together for the very first time. Will it be ballroom bliss or murder on the dance floor? Plus, music performances from soul legend Smokey Robinson, Imelda May and hot new band Five Seconds of Summer.
