Strictly Come Dancing to return – but with shorter series

Strictly Come Dancing will return to television later this year, but with a shorter series than usual, the BBC has confirmed. The show would usually be due to return at the end of September but its launch is expected to be slightly delayed because of coronavirus precautions. The corporation previously confirmed that the professional dancers are poised to start rehearsing remotely at the end of July and could be isolated along with key production members to enable group numbers to still go ahead.
