STRICTLY COME DANCING Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present the first proper show of this year’s series, introducing the 15 celebrities as they perform their first routines, eager to be this year’s Bill Bailey - and not another Ann Widdecombe. Judging their efforts are Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and ‘king of the ballroom’ Anton Du Beke, now settled in as a permanent panellist after his two-week stint last year. But the dancers need not worry just yet, as no one will be leaving tonight. The judges’ scores will be carried over to next week, when the viewers have the chance to vote for their favourite couple.
