STRICTLY will be back on our screens tonight after BBC bosses confirmed huge news earlier this week — next month, same sex couples will dance on the show.

Stay tuned with our Strictly 2019 live blog for all the latest news and gossip.

  • JOH WAY!

    Corrie babe Catherine Tyldesley and Johannes and bringing sexy back with their Tango to Little Bird by Annie Lennox.

    But she hasn’t always been a little bird.

    The actress has lost FIVE stone since she was a youngster and went from a size 22 to a 10 by ditching junk food and hitting the gym.

    So how does she keep in shape now?

    Cath said: “If I was working I’d go on walks. I have been known to squat Shayne Ward. Squat a friend.”

    CT, we will happily squat on Shayne Ward.

    Just let us go and shave our legs.


    Did you know each star gets £25,000 for signing up?

    Then the loot goes up at end of October to £40,000.

    Any star that makes it to the quarter-finals sees their fee boom to £60,000.

    Those who make the semi-finals will see it rocket to £75,000.

    Then the Strictly winner will be paid £100,000!

    The loser has to live with Craig.


    Did anyone see Mike Bushnell on It Takes Two?

    He was surely but gradually going a darker shade of Towie orange as the show went on.

    Shame he hasn’t got a TAN-GO this week.

    Someone give the poor man a wet wipe. Or jet wash.


    This week on It Takes Two, Gethin asked Saffron to give her fellow co-stars some advice for their upcoming performances.

    Saffron told Will: “My advice is just embrace every moment.

    “Feel it, reach for it, bring it in!”

    Is she on the wrong show?

    She sounds like she’s doing a Bushtucker Trial.

    Don’t listen to her, Will.

    You’ll be eating kangaroo anus next.
