The Strictly Come Dancing 2019 launch date will take place in September on BBC One.

When does Strictly Come Dancing air on TV?

The pre-recorded launch will be filmed at the end of August.

Although not officially confirmed by the BBC just yet, based on past years this would make the very likely air date on Saturday, September 7.

As always, the launch show will be introducing us to the celebrities and pro dancers and seeing them paired up.

There will also be a group dance from the professionals and a first group number from this year's celebrity line up, plus musical guests.

The live shows will begin a couple of weeks later, likely on Saturday, September 21. They'll run on Saturday nights through until December.
