Strictly Come Dancing 2014 line-up: Meet the contestants from Pixie Lott to Scott Mills
The 15 celebrities taking part in the new series have been announced
The full line-up of 15 celebrities has been officially announced, while judges Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli are confirmed to take their seats on the panel once again.
Three new professional dancers are set join the show alongside regulars including Brendan Cole, Anton du Beke, Ola Jordan and Kristina Rihanoff. They are Kevin Clifton’s sister Joanne Clifton, Tristan MacManus and Trent Whiddon.
The first episode will see the famous faces paired off with their dancing tutors, before embarking on three weeks of training.
Then, the live shows begin, with the couple receiving the lowest combined scores from the judges and the public vote facing the dreaded results show dance-off and potential elimination.
To give them all a fighting chance, no celebrity will leave until they have danced in two live shows.
Halfway through the series, the dancers will be taken to the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom to film an episode, which always proves a highlight.
More devoted Strictly fans can tune into BBC Two’s It Takes Two with Zoe Ball during weekdays, for all the latest backstage gossip.
