With less than four hours to go before our FIRST live show of Strictly 2012, we've been sneaking around backstage to bring you exclusive pictures from today's dress rehearsal.

It's already been an eventful day, James Jordan had his nose broken by wife Ola while training and Artem took a thwack in the face during a pro-dance. We would say break a leg but Aliona's already done that!

    The dresses so far have been the best ever, it's lovely to see a longer skirt to waft - definitely more flattering than the unitards (er on the ladies that is...)

    Please can Tess Daly go back to wearing long dresses? Those knees should not be exposed to public scrutiny.

    Oh dear - I don't think I'm going to enjoy Darcey Bussell. Finding the 'okay' & 'ya' irritating already. Otherwise loving it!!
