Get ready to start dancing! Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present the first live episode of this year's spectacular series.

The celebrities have had two weeks to rehearse their first routine, and now the 15 couples perform live, trying to impress our fabulous four judges - Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and new head judge Shirley Ballas, the Queen of Latin.

The judges will score each couple, but there will be no farewells this week - instead their scores will be carried over to next weekend when the viewers get the chance to vote for their favourite couple.
