SATURDAY 22 SEPTEMBER 2018
Get ready to start dancing!
Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present NTA and BAFTA award-winning BBC Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.
Tonight’s show brings us the first live episode in what promises to be a spectacular series.
Since the glamourous launch show where the pairings were revealed, the celebrities and their professional partners have had two weeks to rehearse their first routine.
Tonight, the 15 couples take to the Strictly ballroom to perform live in front of our fabulous four judges: Dame Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Head Judge Shirley Ballas.
The judges will score each couple for the first time, but luckily there will be no farewells this week. Instead their scores will be carried over to next weekend, when the viewers get the chance to vote for their favourite couple.
