Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman launch a new series of the celebrity dance contest, with judges Len, Bruno, Darcey and Craig casting a critical eye over proceedings as 15 celebrities step onto the dance floor for the first time. Some might be nervous, some possibly terrified, but all 15 are excited to find out who their professional dance partner will be... Along with pairing the perfect partners, there are also performances from Olly Murs and Rebecca Ferguson. And, of course, all the pros and celebrities dance their very first routine together to get the new series of Strictly launched in style.
