Tess Daly did not disappoint with her look for Saturday's launch show, looking incredible in a white jumpsuit from Karen Millen with a matching pair of shoes from Dune and her hair styled flowing dowqn her shoulders.

Tess sure knows how to tease her fashion fans, however, since she gave some sneak-peaks of her wardrobe fittings ahead of the show - before revealing that she wouldn't share any outfits that had actually made the show.

Modelling a gorgeous metallic jumpsuit, she wrote on Instagram: "We're 3 looks in and this little number might not be making the cut but she was too sparkly not to share."

On Wednesday, she shared another snapshot from her dressing room, which showed four pairs of bejewelled heeled shoes and plenty of feathers, sequins and colour on the wardrobe rail behind them.

"2 days to go and all I'm seeing is sparkles... #StrictlyComeDancing," she wrote. Strictly is back, and all is right with the world!
