Strictly Come Dancing: new behind-the-scenes photos revealed!

Week two of the competition is underway…

Strictly fans have been treated to some brand new behind-the-scenes photos of the pro dancers and the celebrity partners. The series of images, shared on Strictly Updates on Instagram, features the likes of James Cracknell, Anton du Beke and Janette Manrara as the class of 2019 gear up for week two of the competition. The first image shows all the dancers and the celebs posing together on the iconic Strictly stage, and surprisingly there are no sign of nerves despite it being such a big night for the group; this is the first week that one of the pairs will be eliminated.

The second image shows Catherine Tyldesley posing backstage with her partner, Johannes Radebe, while the third shows Anton du Beke and Giovanni Pernice smiling together in the dressing room. Another image shows Janette Manrara sat in the makeup chair, with her celebrity partner Will Bayley stood by her side and holding her hand, while Mike Bushell and Chris Ramsey strike a pose in the fifth image. The final snapshot shows James Cracknell being helped with his bowtie by the wardrobe team – James is currently bottom of the leaderboard and will be hoping to impress the judges and viewers this week, and make it through to week three of the competition.
