Although the precise Strictly Come Dancing 2017 start date has not yet been officially confirmed, the BBC has said the pre-recorded opening show will be filmed on Tuesday, 5 September.

This puts the likely launch date on TV as Saturday, September 9 based on past years.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will host an exclusive premiere and star-studded red carpet launch for the 15th series of Strictly Come Dancing and welcome 15 brand new celebrity contestants to the dancefloor.

This is where the journey will begin for the class of 2017 where they'll discover which professional dancer they are to be paired up with for the competition.

They'll then hit the dancefloor for their very first performance as a group.

The live shows will then begin later in the year, typically launching three weeks after the launch.
