We’re less than 48 hours away from the first live show of Strictly Come Dancing 2016 and tonight the songs and dances have been revealed.
Strictly will return to our screens for a two night engagement – Friday and Saturday – splitting the action into two so we can savour it for longer. All 15 couples will take to the floor for the first time this weekend and we’ll get our first chance to find out who can move.
It feels like weeks since the launch show and we can’t wait to throw ourselves into the thick of the glitterball action.
