September heralds the end of Summer, the beginning of Autumn, shorter days and darker nights. More importantly, it means that Strictly Come Dancing is back on our screens bringing Saturday night viewing back to life.
Yes – it’s time to polish up the glitter ball again, get out the sparkly frocks and sew on those sequins. The 2019 season of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing has launched with co-presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman hosting this year’s launch and welcoming 15 new celebrity contestants to the dance floor.

Enjoy your own ‘Strictly’ moment
For many of us, Strictly Come Dancing is compulsive Saturday night viewing, but I wonder just how many of us wish we too could learn to dance like the celebrities? There may not be the huge television audiences or the judging panel (thank goodness!), but you can enjoy your own Strictly moment here at TLH Leisure Resort And if you’ve already started your dance journey, you can always come along to the Hursts’s Spring Dance Break where you can hone your new skills.
In the meantime, as we get ready for the start of the “Strictly” season – who are you supporting? Will you be voting when the phone lines open in a few weeks or just bemoan the results if your favourite doesn’t get through? Whatever you do, make sure – in the words of the programme’s hosts – you “Keep dancing!”
