Strictly Come Dancing - week one songs and dances

The Strictly Come Dancing 2020 live shows are HERE and the first songs and dances have been revealed!


This Saturday night, the 12 Strictly Come Dancing 2020 contestants and their pro partners will hit the dancefloor for the very first time this year.

They’ve had a week of intense training following the launch show 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…

Strictly 2020’s live shows begin Saturday evening, October 24 starting at 7:25PM with a marathon episode lasting for just under 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 – Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse 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.
