And so it’s back, the hugely popular (but terribly titled) Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC1 for a new run this Saturday. This year’s line up of hot-footing slebs is the usual mix of sports stars, soap stars and TV presenters and, as always, the judges include Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Len Goodman but this year ITV-defecting Alesha Dixon will be replaced by actual dancer, ballet star Darcey Bussell. Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly are back as hosts and Claudia Winkleman and Zoe Ball will be running the spin-off show. Here are the runners and riders in this year’s competition.
