We still have a few days to go until the first live show of Strictly Come Dancing 2018, but fear not, we’ve got all the glorious details about the first show to keep you going until September 22.


All of the songs and dances for week one have been revealed and there are some serious gems in there.


The cast of 2018 will perform with their professional dance partners for the first time this Saturday and we cannot wait to see what they have in store for us.

There are already some strong contendors, but there are bound to be a few blunders in the ballroom this weekend.


We all know week one never goes as smoothly as the celebrities hope, so it’ll be quite the interesting show.


One couple we can’t wait to see perform is Katie Piper and Gorka Marquez who will be waltzing around the Strictly studio to When We Were Young by Adele.
