Review by:
David Butcher

Usually the big TV rivalry of the autumn is between The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing. This year, ITV has tossed another weapon into the fight – another celebrity dancing show. The twist here (and who knows, an actual twist may be involved at some point) is that the six competing celebrities are dancing not alongside professional dancers with whom they can flirt shamelessly; in this show they take to the floor with their real-life, non-famous partners, so we can expect a bit of gossip-magazine-style spying on their home lives too. Davina McCall hosts proceedings as Brian McFadden, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Denise Welch and others show us their moves.

About this programme

The couples are competing to impress the voting public and three resident judges - Mel B, Jason Gardiner and Wayne Sleep - who are joined each week by guests on the panel. Davina McCall hosts.
