Strictly Come Dancing 2013 new series launch date revealed

The celebrity dance show will return to BBC1 at 6:50pm Saturday 7 September


Good news for fans of BBC1’s shiny-floored celebrity dance favourite – Strictly will be back on your screens at 6:50pm on Saturday 7 September.


The BBC’s talent show behemoth makes its comeback a week after ITV’s X Factor returns to Saturday nights, putting a record 15 new celebrities and their partners through their paces.

The launch show will introduce the stars before they discover who their professional dance partners will be. They’ll then take to the dance floor to perform together for the very first time in a show that will include music from Rod Stewart and Jessie J debuting her latest single.

As well as the famous faces, this series of Strictly will feature four new full-time pro dancers – meet them here. And check out the Strictly Rumour Mill to find out which celebs could be strutting their stuff this year.
