Strictly Come Dancing 2017: the launch night – as it happened

Glitter gang, unite! Strictly is back and there’s a whole new batch of ballroom stars waiting to be paired with their partners. You joined us for every sparkling second

8.41pm BST

So that was the first instalment. There might not have been any big stars, but there was charm, glitter and great moves by the bucketful. Thanks very much for joining me. Here’s a final thought from sojomo.

I had forgotten how long it goes on.

Legs crossed time.

Must remember for the coming weeks: really shouldn't have so much to drink.

8.36pm BST

So judging by the group dance to Kenny Loggins’s Footloose, Chizzy is a useful mover, Debbie McGee can dance, Charlotte Hawkins has all the animation of a fossil and the hip-thrusting Rev is this year’s Ed Balls.

So that’s it, everyone’s paired off and Strictly 2017 can commence. Bruno
