The first trailer for Strictly Come Dancing 2017 is here.
The popular dancing competition returns this Saturday at 7pm on BBC One, and a brand new trailer has now been released, in which we can see the line-up of celebrities getting glammed up as they prepare to take on the dance floor this weekend:
Hoping to get their hands on that glitterball trophy this year, we have Mollie King, Jonnie Peacock, Alexandra Burke, Gemma Atkinson, Charlotte Hawkins, Ruth Langsford, Debbie McGee, Davood Ghadami, Brian Conley, Simon Rimmer, Aston Merrygold, Richard Coles, Susan Calman, Chizzy Akudolu and Joe McFadden.
It was confirmed last week that the Strictly launch show will pay special tribute to Bruce Forsyth, following the recent news of his death. Executive producer Louise Rainbow released a statement, reading: “Of course, we will be paying tribute to Sir Bruce at our launch show and this will include a heartfelt performance from out Strictly professional dancers.
“We want to celebrate him and all that he loved about the show. Sir Bruce was, and will always be, a huge part of Strictly Come Dancing.”
Strictly Come Dancing returns September 9 at 7pm on BBC One.
