Strictly returns to BBC One this autumn - start date as usual is likely to be at the beginning of September.



What we know so far:
- All of last year's professional dancers, with the exception of Pasha Kovalev who bowed out in February, will be returning. Dianne Buswell confirmed on Sunday Brunch last weekend that the pro dancers start rehearsals at the end of this month.
- Dame Darcey Bussell will not be returning as a judge - her replacement is yet to be confirmed, but several names including Adam Garcia and Anton Du Beke have been rumoured to take her place.
- On the rumoured contestants list so far: DJ Dev Griffiths from BBC 1Xtra, Coronation Street's Jack P Shepherd, Boyzone star Keith Duffy, historian and presenter Lucy Worsley, social media star and cleaning expert Mrs Hinch, Atomic Kitten star Natasha Hamilton, former Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya, former TOWIE star Dan Osborne and comedian/chatty man Alan Carr.
- Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will return as hosts of the show, whilst Zoe Ball will continue to present 'It Takes Two' weeknights on BBC Two once the live shows start, joined this series by a new co-presenter in Rylan Clark-Neal.

Oh well here's hoping then because I've always wanted to see Jack do one of these kinda shows! I know Bev Callard has referenced in the past how she'd love to do it but ITV won't let her..

Motsi Mabuse, Oti's sister and judge on Germany's version, has been announced as Darcey's replacement for this series!

An unexpected choice! ohmy.gif I wonder what that means for Oti, if there'll be a conflict of interest or if she'll be stepping down as a pro. Tbf I don't think it's much of an issue, Motsi judged Oti before on Let's Dance and I don't think there was any backlash over that. I've just been reading a bit more about it and apparently she came across as unbiased. Good to see that they have chosen someone with both dance and judging credentials, plus she seemed like a big personality on Celebrity Gogglebox. Potentially a great choice.

Whilst I know that they are 'professionals; does seem a bit of a conflict of interests having a relative as a Pro.

Maybe Oti is sitting out this year?

They're professionals and adults, I'm sure it will be fine.

Julianne Hough was a judge on DWTS while her brother Derek was a dancer, andthat was fine, plus Motsi already did it in Germany with Oti as Jade said.

Let's just be grateful it isn't Anton, or Harry Judd who was also rumoured

I'm delighted that the BBC are continuing to showcase diversity and aren't retreating to a three men & one woman line-up, and Motsi has the experience to back it up.

I'd have thought that would be a conflict of interest with Motsi being a judge whilst Oti is a dancer on the show?

I've just had an e-mail from BBC Shows and Tours confirming that the Red Carpet Launch is being filmed on 26th August and the Launch Show is being filmed on 30th August - ticket ballots have just opened for both on their website.

and Season 19 (her debut judging season) was the best dwts season by far so if the stars align this could be good for strictly x

The judges judge the contestants rather than the pros so I can't see it being a problem, especially when there's three other judges on the panel too.

Will just be a shame that Oti won’t be able to win the series otherwise you get the wine mums going ‘I smell FIX 😡😡 xx’

I have no doubts she’ll be professional though and it’s nice to see a more unexpected choice on the panel who has the right experience.

Do we reckon there could be someone from Downton Abbey this year with the movie coming out in September?
