It’s been a year since Rose Ayling-Ellis lifted the Glitterball Trophy with her dance partner, Giovanni Pernice.
Rose was Strictly’s first deaf contestant.
Now, back for its 20th series, Strictly has 15 new hopefuls waiting in the wings to show us their moves.
From TV stars to singers, football legends to comedians, who will prove to be a ballroom natural and who might have a case of two left feet?

Got some ideas about what you think will happen this series?
Get ready for the latest dancefloor debutantes by playing Strictly Come Dancing bingo!
Whip up some play-along bingo cards and give this game a whirl.
Strictly Come Dancing bingo
To create your own Strictly bingo cards, you’ll need:
- Pieces of paper with 3×3 grids drawn onto them.
- Your fellow sofa judges (as many friends / family as want to join in).
- Drinks and snacks, as watching celebrities dance is tiring work!
Pick eight events that are likely to happen during Strictly and write them down on your bingo card, leaving the middle square blank.
In this middle square, note your Strictly Come Dancing inspired bingo name.
There could be a bonus point or prize for the most creative name choice!
That could be “The Ballroom Belle”, “The Quickstep Queen”, “The Waltzing Wizard” or “Let’s Get ready to Rumba”.
PLAY LIKE A VIKING IN THE SLOT GAME POWER OF THE GODS: VALHALLA
If one of your guessed events happens on the show, mark it off with your dabber!
If you want to have multiple winners, you can award a prize for 1L and 2L (which is when a prize is given to the first player to mark off one complete line, and two complete lines).
However, if there’s only room for one Lord or Lady of the Dance, they’ll be the first to get a full house (when all things on your bingo card have been marked off).
This game could be played over one episode (and the winner is the player with the most squares marked off) or your bingo game could play out over the series, until a full house winner is crowned.
SPIN THE EVERY SPINNER IS A WINNER WHEELS FOR A GUARANTEED WIN DAILY
