The new Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers are settling in nicely as rehearsals for the group routine are underway ahead of the 2021 launch.
When Strictly returns later this year with its all star lineup, viewers will also get to meet four new pros.
Jowita Przystal, Kai Widdrington, Cameron Lombard and Nikita Kuzmin are ready to rock and roll with the other dancers.
We’re going to be treated to something sultry from the looks of these pictures, as the Strictly stars strike a pose around each new cast member under some moody lighting.
It is not yet known if the new foursome will be getting celebrity partners this year, but the launch episode shall reveal all.
The BBC series have given us some incredible intros for new dancers in the past, like this one from 2013 (featuring none other than Kevin Clifton).
We still don’t have a start date for the new series, but the show typically kicks off in September. However last year’s launch had the later start of October 17 due to the pandemic, with the first live show going out a week later.
This series will reportedly run for around 13 weeks.

The judges’ panel will be looking a little different this year. Long term Strictly dancer Anton Du Beke – replacing Bruno Tonioli – will join Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse and Craig Revel Horwood.
The Strictly Class of 2021, which includes McFly star Tom Fletcher and Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly, have already been giving us glimpses from behind-the-scenes as rehearsals and training get going.

Who will lift the Glitterball trophy this year?
Comedian and actor Bill Bailey shocked the nation with his fancy footwork, which saw him win alongside dance partner Oti Mabuse last year.
Oti is so far the only Strictly pro to win the title in consecutive years, having first triumphed in 2019 with actor Kelvin Fletcher.
She is the second star to win twice. Russian-Kazakh dancer Aliona Vilani was victorious in 2011 and 2015 with Harry Judd and Jay McGuiness respectively.
