Strictly launched its brand new series earlier this month with a pre-recorded programme that saw the celebrities learn which pro dancer they’d been coupled up with.

The show then took a brief hiatus from the airwaves to allow the couples to rehearse their first dance, which they’ll perform live this Saturday night.

So much pressure!
