Strictly Come Dancing









Strictly Come Dancing is returning to BBC One this autumn, but the 2020 series will be "slightly" shorter than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The BBC said adjustments would be made "to ensure we deliver the high standards audiences know and love". 

"The safety of our cast and crew is of the utmost importance to us," it said, promising updates "in due course". 

The BBC has not announced how long the 2020 series of Strictly will be and how many celebrities will take part. Strictly normally begins in September, and ends in mid-December. 

Kevin Clifton and AJ Pritchard are leaving, but the line-up of professional dancers will otherwise remain the same. 

They are set to start rehearsing remotely at the end of July and could be isolated along with key production members. 

However, it is not certain whether Bruno Tonioli will be able to combine his judging role with his duties on Strictly's US sister show Dancing with the Stars due to quarantine requirements.
