The largest group of professional dancers in the show’s history returned to the studio on Monday to begin their group rehearsals, which run throughout the summer – and they gave a warm welcome to the new dancers, too!

Posting on their Instagram Stories, various dancers from the show including Dianne Buswell and Johannes Radebe, shared photos, selfies and videos of the team's reunion as well as introducing their followers to the new pros joining the 2022 series.

Strictly Come Dancing series 20 will begin in September. The launch show typically occurs around the middle of September, with the live shows and official competition kicking off a fortnight later. The excitement for Strictly always builds ahead of the launch show as the professional dancers rehearsals last throughout the summer, and the celebrity line-up is usually announced throughout August. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait!
