Week 1 results on Strictly Come Dancing as the live shows begin.
Celebrity contestants from Strictly Come Dancing stepped to the dance floor live for the first time on Saturday.
They will be judged by Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, and Anton Du Beke, but no celebrities will be eliminated this week.
Instead, the judges’ scores will be carried over to the next week, when fans will vote for their favorite among the 15 couples.
Celebrities have been confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing 2021.
The first live performance will feature Great British Bake Off star John Whaite and professional Johannes Radebe, the show’s first male coupling, dancing to New Order’s Blue Monday.
Actor Greg Wise and partner Karen Hauer will do an American Smooth to Frank Sinatra’s That’s Life, while McFly’s Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden will perform a cha-cha to Earth, Wind and Fire’s September.
A group routine performed by the professional dancers will also open the show.
On Saturday, September 25, at 7 p.m., BBC One will broadcast the first live show.
