It’s time to get hyped as Strictly Come Dancing 2020 has revealed the first routines ahead of the live show this Saturday.
After the success of last week’s pre-recorded launch night, it’s now all go for our socially bubbled celebrities and their partners as they prepare to hit the dancefloor.
Among the stand out tracks include Katya Jones and Nicola Adams making their debut as the show’s first all-female couple to perform a high energy quickstep to Get Happy by Ella Fitzgerald.
Bookies fave Maisie Smith and Gorka Marquez will be performing a samba to…. samba, which explains why Maisie was looking so exhausted earlier!
While most couples and pros are sticking to latin routines to being the energy for their first week in the competition, we’ve also got some ballroom classics to bring us to a mellow level.
NFL player Jason Bell will be giving it his all in an American Smooth to My Girl by The Temptations, while Caroline Quentin will also perform the same dance to Morning Train by Sheena Easton with Johannes Radebe.
Everyone is safe this week, with the eliminations kicking off as usual in week two, but it’s still all to play for as they make their first impressions on the dancefloor.
