Back and more glamorous than ever, Strictly Come Dancing opens its ballroom doors for 2013, revealing a glittering line-up of celebrities. Who will find their perfect partner and lift the glitter ball trophy? It all starts right here.

Hosts Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly put the sparkle back into Saturday nights, as the series shimmies onto screen with an exclusive red carpet premiere full of old-school Hollywood glamour.

After a trip down the red carpet to face the flashbulbs and adoring fans, the celebrities will head to the dance floor where their professional dance partners will be revealed, and they perform as a group for the very first time.

The celebrities will face the judging panel of Strictly royalty, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and head judge Len Goodman, with world-renowned ballerina Darcey Bussell returning for her second year on the show. Stars Rod Stewart and Jessie J will also perform their latest singles, and The Strictly Champions of 2012 - Olympic gymnast Louis Smith and Flavia Cacace - return to perform their celebrated Charleston to really give this year’s celebrities insight into just what is ahead of them!

A nice idea to bring back the previous winners to show case a dance but I wouldn't say the Charleston was their highlight. It will be strange to see Flavia back but not being paired up - are her and Vincent still going to be involved with the show in some way?

With the full list of pro's announced on the Showbiz page, along with the terrible weather today, I'm starting to get excited about this series. Roll on the 7th September!

I gotta be honest, I never got the hype though I'm sure that he's a lovely guy.

Ergh. I don't like Jessie J. I can't stand the way that she uses her voice. She shrieks everything rather than just singing. Someone should tell her that there is more than one way of singing.

Jessie J????? Deep, deep joy. Almost as bad as Blulu. Has no one ever told her that less is more?

On the positive side tho, those watching live will have chance to nip to the loo!

I think it's a great idea to bring back the previous years' champion to open the new series. And I'd like to see him appear in the final to present the trophy to this years' champ.

Rod Stewart - indifferent; but Jessie J ? Thank goodness for Sky+ !

I wanted Louis and Flavia to open the series with their showdance, just on the offchance that we'd be able to relive the look on Mother Louis' face. The one somewhere between "I'm So Proud" and "What The Chuffin' Nora Was That?!"

Ditto Rod Stewart. Really really cannot stand his voice either. As I'll be watching live, this will be two good opportunties for a loo and drinks break.

Is it wrong of me to say that I'd prefer Flavia & Vincent to Flavia & Louis?

I agree and have always thought they should do this. It would be a nice touch at the end of the series and better than Bruces shenanigans over the past couple of years!

Quite agree, Dilly: We'll still be seeing Vincent and Flavia a fair bit but I think they now have the best of both worlds - i.e. links with SCD and autonomy outside of it. They are so fortunate that their talent has brought such success with Midnight Tango and their new venture.

I think the BBC obviously rate them very highly when they are able to concentrate on their new show while at the same time able to keep their feet in the SCD door. They would have been a big loss to the show (IMO) and it will be good to still be able to see them from time to time.

I was supposed to be going away for that weekend but have cancelled due to money but also slightly because of SCD.
