The Strictly Come Dancing 2018 live shows start TONIGHT and the first songs and dances have been revealed!

This evening, the 15 Strictly Come Dancing 2018 contestants and their pro partners will hit the dancefloor for the very first time this year.

They've had two weeks of intense training following the launch show at the start of the month where the celebs and professionals were partnered up.

But how will they cope dancing live and in front of the judges? We'll have to wait to find out but for now, but the dances they'll be performing and the songs they'll be dancing to have been announced.

This year the celebs are being thrown into the thick of it from the off with some Strictly firsts for the opening weekend...

PHEW!

Unlike in recent years, there will be just the one live show to open the series rather than two split over Friday and Saturday.

Strictly 2018's live shows begin tonight, September 22 starting at 6:15PM with a marathon episode lasting over 2 hours.

As always, there will be no results show in the first week with the stars safe from elimination.

However they will still be marked and critiqued by the returning judges - Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and head judge Shirley Ballas.

Those marks will carry forward to next weekend where one unlucky celeb will get the boot following the first dance off of the series.

As usual, a combination of judges' marks and viewer votes will decide the bottom two couples who will perform again. The judges will then decide which couple stays.
