Strictly 2022’s live shows begin Saturday evening, 24 September starting at 6:45PM 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 – Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke.

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