The wait is finally over, as Strictly Come Dancing is finally returning to our screens – and we couldn't be more excited!
The popular BBC1 show was due to launch last week, but it was delayed due to the sad passing of the Queen on 8 September. Her Majesty had a great love for the show, and she will no doubt be remembered in a poignant way when Strictly airs. Find out all of the details about the launch show below…
