Grab the blister plasters, Strictly Come Dancing couples’ training has begun.
Oh yes, now that they’ve got to know who their professional partners are, it’s time for the celebs to get down to business and start learning the fancy footwork. After all, it’s just a few weeks until they’ll be out on that ballroom floor performing to millions…
Luckily for us, in between all of the dancing, the celebs and pros alike are hotfooting it to Twitter to share the experience, giving us a peek at the action…
There was certainly no hanging about when it came to team names.
Presenter Anita Rani and new pro Gleb Savchenko are rather fittingly team ‘GLITA’ (Strictly is nothing without a bit of sparkle):

Broadcaster Katie Derham is having fun… as long as she can have a bit of a lie down afterwards.
Well @TheAntonDuBeke I'd say our first rehearsal was simply tremendous! Loved it xx *goes for lie down*

Well, after she gets over the first hurdle: being able to look at her dishy dance partner…
