26 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ready to dazzle us again this autumn, series 12 of Strictly Come Dancing is on the horizon.

15 more celebrities are preparing to strap on some sequins and slap on the fake tan, all in the name of Saturday night entertainment.

Here's everything we know so far about the biggest British TV show's return:

1. When is it back?

The BBC are always particularly coy and prickly about confirming the start dates of TV shows, but a simple look at the official site for audience tickets reveals that the first two shows of the series will air on Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27.

The Launch Show will air, as usual, three weeks earlier. Due to some funny little show called Tumble, it looks like the Launch Show will air on a Sunday this year, on September 7.

That is the show where the celebrities meet the partners for the first time, and it's also »

Frightfest 2014: ‘Blood Moon’ Review

25 August 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ian Whyte, George Blagden, Anna Skellern, Corey Johnson, Shaun Dooley, Jack Fox, Eleanor Matsuura, David Sterne, Amber Jean Rowan | Written by Alan Wightman | Directed by Jeremy Wooding

It’s safe to say horror westerns don’t have the best track record. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a good amount of decent examples out there such as Grim Prarie Tales, Ravenous, Dead Birds and The Burrowers. But there’s also a Lot of bad horror westerns, two of which – Gallowalkers and Umbrage – debuted at Frightfest’s of the past. Given that, it was with a sense of trepidation that I approached Blood Moon

Set in Colorado in 1887, Blood Moon sees a stagecoach full of strange passengers and an enigmatic gunslinger Calhoun (Dooley) find themselves prisoners of two desperate outlaws on the run. As the prairie travellers attempt to outwit the outlaws in any way they can it soon »

Wildlife presenter Steve Backshall confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing

25 August 2014 1:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

BAFTA-winning naturalist Steve Backshall is the ninth celebrity to be confirmed for this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

He made the announcement today (August 25) live on BBC Breakfast.

Backshall won two BAFTAs in 2011, including Best Children's Television Presenter, and is best known for presenting Cbbc's flagship wildlife programme Deadly 60 and spin-off Deadly Pole to Pole. He is also a published author.

His career has seen him confront some of nature's most terrifying creatures, including diving with great white sharks, catching a king cobra and being bitten by crocodiles.

Backshall said that he considers Strictly to be more of a challenge than his naturalist work, saying: "My day job filming wildlife in jungles and swamps is nothing like as scary as what is ahead.

"I think Strictly Come Dancing is going to be my wildest challenge by far!"

He joins already-confirmed celebrities Frankie Bridge, Judy Murray, Alison Hammond, Thom Evans, Simon Webbe, »

Danniella Westbrook has appeared on TV, speaking candidly about her recent drug relapse.

It was revealed over the weekend that the former EastEnders actress had relapsed and taken cocaine again after splitting from her 24-year-old boyfriend while on holiday in Majorca. She had previously been clean for 12 years.

"I'll be honest with you, I'm not where I was with drugs… but it was a case of how long would it have been before I was, and that's what I was really frightened about," an emotional Westbrook told This Morning hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

"I spoke to a family member before the story broke, and said that I had relapsed and was frightened and that I needed to do something. Then as soon as my agent called to say the story is breaking, I said I need to get help."

Suspects returns: How Towie and The Bill spawned Channel 5's drama hit

18 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Channel 5's first original drama series for eight years, police procedural Suspects was seen by many as a huge risk when it launched earlier this year - unscripted, unglamorous, untested waters.

"I remember our production meeting for the first series," says Paul Marquess - Suspects co-creator and managing director of producers Newman Street. "I could just see the fear - people thinking I'd lost the plot."

But the semi-improvised series - which has its cast work not from a traditional script, but a detailed story document - was far from a failure. Instead, it proved to be one of the most diverting and original UK cop shows in recent memory, drawing an enormously positive reaction from critics.

"Everyone worked so hard on the show last year to make it great, but I was genuinely surprised at how well it was received," says Damien Molony, who plays passionate Detective Sergeant Jack Weston. »
