PICTURES! Meet the Strictly Come Dancing 2015 professionals

Here's a picture round up of the Strictly Come Dancing 2015 professional dancers.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2015 pros were confirmed earlier today with three newbies joining the line up and two exits from last year's lot.

For the men, we've lost Trent Whiddon but Russian-born Dancing With The Stars' Gleb Savchenko and 2012 Italian Champion Giovanni Pernice.

The newbies join the cast of eight guys, alongside returning dancers Aljaž Škorjanec, Anton Du Beke, Brendan Cole, Kevin Clifton, Pasha Kovalev and Tristan MacManus.

For the ladies, Iveta Lukosiute has left the show, replaced by eight-times South African Latin American Champion Otlile Mabuse.

She's on the pro line up with Aliona Vilani, Janette Manrara, Joanne Clifton, Karen Hauer, Kristina Rihanoff, Natalie Lowe, Ola Jordan and Otlile Mabuse.

Strictly's executive producer Lousie Rainbow said: “We are thrilled with our pro-dancer line up this year.

"Not only are some of the viewers’ favourites returning, but we also have some exciting new dancers joining the Strictly family.

" I think it’s safe to say that this year’s Strictly will be as exciting and entertaining as always.”

The new series of Strictly will kick off on BBC One in the autumn, with the celebrity line up to be confirmed in due course.
