Introducing brand new dance category: Couple's Choice

Who's ready for another fab-u-lous series of Strictly? Well, we've got some very exciting news to share just before things get started!

For the first time since The Charleston was introduced back in 2009, our celeb and pro couples will be able to shake their stuff in a whole new way thanks to the addition of a fresh dance category for 2018: 'Couple's Choice'.

This will allow our couples to choose from one of three styles they think will showcase their celebrity's skills best as the weeks progress. The three styles they can try their hands (and feet!) at include:

Contemporary - takes inspiration from Ballet, lyrical and modern dance

Street/Commercial - covers all styles of urban dance as well as allowing couples to go in a more pop, commercial direction

Theatre/Jazz - very much the style of musical theatre, including elements of tap, soft shoe, burlesque and Jazz

We can't wait to see our couples really unleash even more creativity in the Ballroom this year! 

But before they start rehearsing, make sure you see our pros and celebs partner up for the first time this Saturday at 7.35pm on BBC One.
