Strictly Come Dancing got underway last week, with Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse sashaying straight to the top of the leaderboard with their impressive Samba. But can they stay there? The new songs and dances for week two of the competition have been released, with the current favourites taking on the Waltz, which they will perform to the track What The World Needs Now by Burt Bacharach. CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual and his partner Amy Dowden, who are currently in second place with 31 points thanks to their Cha-Cha-Cha, will be dancing the Foxtrot to The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra - and will no doubt be hoping to pip Kelvin and Oti to the top spot this week.

Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard will be hoping to improve on their 27 points for the Tango with the Cha-Cha-Cha, performed to One Touch by Jess Glynne and Jax Jones, while Will Bayley and Janette Manrara are swapping the Quickstep for the Salsa, danced to 1,2,3 by Gloria Estefan.

This weekend will see the first couple eliminated from the 2019 series. All the scores from last week's show will be combined with the scores for their week two dances, as well as the results from the public vote, to determine who'll be the first couple to leave the competition this year.
