Strictly 2011: The celebrities in pictures

Good evening, and welcome to the Strictly Come Dancing 2011 launch night liveblog! Are you excited? I'm Very excited. Tonight our celebrities and their professional partners will take to the floor for the first time, and we'll find out who has natural grace and poise, and who has two left feet plus an extra one for good measure.

I'll be liveblogging all the action on BBC1 from 6.10pm, apart from the bits where Sir Bruce Forsyth grinds out another dreadful gag and the audience dutifully laugh - those bits will be ignored as a matter of principle. Please note that from a technical standpoint I know very little about ballroom dancing, so you're unlikely to find insightful commentary on arm positioning and swan-like necks here. The extent of my knowledge of latin dancing can be measured in Zumba classes. »
