Following the launch, Oti Mabuse has been paired with Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher after her original partner Jamie Laing was forced to quit due to injury.

Following the pairings, the celebs of 2019 then took part in their first group dance to close the launch episode.

Now all the celebs and pros have just two weeks of intensive training before they have their first LIVE performance on BBC One at the end of the month.

Strictly Come Dancing returns Saturday, September 21 on BBC One.

As always, there will be no elimination in the opening weekend but all the routines will be marked by the judges.

The scores will then carry forward to the second week where the public will get to vote for the first time and one couple will be sent home.
