Strictly Come Dancing viewers – please do not adjust your television sets.
The live broadcast of the hugely popular BBC 1 dance show was interrupted at the beginning of the programme, with some viewers complaining about losing their picture and a lag as our celebrity dancers introduced the show.
Viewers took to Twitter to query what had just happened, wondering whether it was just their TV’s that had lost signal.
That opening went well… #Strictly

However, not everyone who was watching the show tonight experienced an issue, with some viewers tweeting to change over to the BBC 1 HD feed.
“We do apologise to any viewers who may have experienced any transmission problems,” she said, before adding that this does happen when a show is broadcast live.
The second week of Strictly sees one of our celebrity couples sent home from the competition, with their first week scores combined with their score from tonight.
And judging by week one, it’s set to be a hugely tough week for our celebs; after Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse wowed with their incredible samba, things looked bleaker for James Cracknell and Luba Mushtuk, who scored a measly 12 for their stiff tango.
But could the week two scores change this?
