There were more sequins than you could shake a glitter ball at… but we’d expect nothing less from the official launch of Strictly Come Dancing.
The professional dancers and celebrities set to compete put their best feet forward as they shimmied down the red carpet.
Here are some key moments from the launch:
Hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are their usual glamorous selves
Darcey Bussell shows off her best moves
Wait, are Ed Balls and Laura Whitmore going to be dancing partners?
Ore Oduba and Anastacia are already in sync
Pro dancer Brendan Cole out pouts Greg Rutherford and Daisy Lowe
Lesley Joseph is purple perfection
It’s a 10 for Len!
What a line-up! Say hello to the pro dancers: Joanne Clifton, Otlile Mabuse, Janette Manrara, Karen Clifton and Natalie Lowe
A trio of terrific-ness in the form of Louise Redknapp, Will Young and Naga Munchetty
Court is in session! Hello Judge Robert Rinder
Wait, is that a smile from judge Craig Revel Horwood?
Nice to see you, to see you nice… bring on the first episode of Strictly!
