Strictly Come Dancing is back, seeing the beloved cast of judges return to our TV screens this year. 

The last series saw the judging panel shaken up when Bruno Tonioli left the programme to join Britain's Got Talent on ITV1.

He was replaced by well-loved professional dancer Anton Du Beke who now stars alongside Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas.
