Wednesday 28th June 2017

Another ratings winner, Strictly Come Dancing began in 2004 on BBC One and has also seen an increase of viewers at around the 10 million mark. The show mixes long running series Come Dancing with a nod to the film Strictly Ballroom, seeing celebrities (some with two left feet) get paired up with processionals and battle it out to be crowned the best act of the series. Initially presented by Bruce Forsyth, it’s now Tess Daley and Claudia Winkleman who head up the show after he stepped down in 2013.
