Strictly come to dance returns to our screens this fall, with a new group of stars learning how to ballroom dance.
From Helen Skelton to Fleur East, an entire roster of celebrities will strut their stuff to impress the judges and viewers at home.
Here’s everything you need to know…
When does Strictly start?
the launch of Strictly 2022 was pushed back after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, which means that the pre-recorded show in which celebrities are paired with their professional dance partners will now take place on Friday, September 23.
The live shows will start the next day, Saturday September 24, during which the couples will dance together for the first time.
How long will the series last?
Fifteen celebrities will take part, which means the live shows will likely run for 13 weeks, as they do most years.
The final will most likely take place on December 17, the last Saturday before Christmas.
Who is competing?
The 2022 roster includes actors, musicians, comedians and a Paralympic athlete. Meet them all here.
Who is on the judging panel?
Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton du Beke and Head Judge Shirley Ballas will once again score the dancers.
Du Beke, who had appeared as a professional dancer in Strictly since his first series, he originally stepped in to replace Bruno Tonioli after quarantine rules prevented him from traveling between the US, where he judges dancing with the stars – and the UK every week.
Du Beke now serves as a permanent judge, replacing Tonioli.
Strictly come to dance returns Friday 23 September on BBC One.
