  Strictly Come Dancing 2020: How Is It Actually All Going To Work? Throughout the pandemic, we’ve had a lot of questions about how this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing will work, which initially included whether it would even be able to go ahead. However, after a huge effort from the production team to get the show on the road, it’s now just a few weeks until this year’s launch, and while there are still a few question marks hovering over the series, we still have more answers than we did earlier in the summer.For those who are still a little confused as to what to expect when the BBC dance show returns to our screen, allow us to clear things up...

Shirley Ballas has been confirmed as the new judge on Strictly Come Dancing . Clearly ecstatic at her casting as a devoted follower of the show, she added: ' Strictly Come Dancing The dancer she was referring to is Helen Richey, who has judged on Dancing With The Stars for the past 15 years.

Shirley Ballas sashayed her way on to the Strictly dance floor for the first time on Saturday - and it's fair to say she received a pretty good reaction. The Latin expert had to contend with Bruno's accidental groping, gamely laughing it off and carrying on. And the new head judge did slip up once

Strictly Come Dancing’s head judge Shirley Ballas has given a warning to contestant Maisie Smith after emerging as this year’s early favourite.

The EastEnders star and her partner Gorka Marquez have been marked out as ones to watch with bookies and viewers alike, after Maisie won last year’s Strictly Children In Need special.

However, Shirley has told Maisie that she should not think that having previous experience on the BBC ballroom show will count for anything in this year’s competition.

In an interview with The Sun, she said: “I know she won the special but if I was Maisie I wouldn’t take anything for granted because doing one dance is not like doing ten weeks.

Shirley also said viewers should keep their eye on comedian Bill Bailey – who is partnered with last year’s winning pro Oti Mabuse – in the coming weeks, after impressing her with his moves during the group dance on Saturday’s launch show.

Admitting she’d initially pegged him as “this year’s Ed Balls”, she changed her mind after seeing him dance.

“He was rotating his hips, he was giving it some stick,” she said.
