Strictly Come Dancing (commonly known as Strictly) is a British television reality show shown live on BBC TV with catchup streaming on BBC iPlayer.
Strictly Come Dancing officially returns to TV screens on Saturday 23rd September and 2017 looks set to be one of the hottest series ever. Strictly features contestants, celebrities and other people from all the walks of life with professional dance partners competing in a Ballroom and Latin dance competition.
The show has run on BBC One since 2004, primarily on Saturday evenings with a following Sunday night results show. From series 1 to 11, the late Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly presented the pro-celebrity ballroom dancing competition. Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly are currently co-hosts.
Head Judge Len Goodman retired last year after a 12 year stint and he’s replaced by Shirley Ballas who’s been described as “the Queen Of Latin”.
