Strictly Come Dancing 2012: exclusive behind the scenes video

See the Strictly stars and their partners chatting and striking poses on the set of the Radio Times cover-shoot


It was freezing cold inside Studio Six of the BBC’s Television Centre on the day of our Strictly Come Dancing cover-shoot – but that didn’t stop the show’s stars from showing us their best moves.


Over the course of two days we photographed each and every one of this year’s contestants for the dual covers of this week’s Radio Times (available now, priced £1.40).

Clearly having a ball, all the celebs and professionals made the most of the occasion, cracking jokes and striking poses with aplomb:

The resulting pictures, which you can see in this week’s magazine, turned out great thanks in no small part to the enthusiasm, hard work and gymnastic prowess of the stars.

And we’ve got lots more exclusive Strictly footage to share with you over the coming weeks, including interviews and more behind the scenes material. So, if you’re a Strictly fan, check back to for more from our photo-shoot.

Strictly’s tenth series continues from Friday 5 October at 9:00pm on BBC1.
