Meanwhile, with fewer celebs this year due to the shorter series, Graziano Di Prima, Nadiya Bychkova, Nancy Xu and Neil Jones won't get celebrity partners.

They will still take part in the show's pro group dances and also perform together with music acts in Sunday's results show.

Now all the celebs and pros have a week of intensive training before they have their first LIVE performance on BBC One next weekend.


And before long, it'll be time for the first elimination of the series.
