Strictly The Professionals air date and time confirmed as stars return

Strictly Come Dancing is back on our screens very soon, and this year there's an extra special treat for fans.

A one-off episode called Strictly The Professionals will take a look back at the success of the past stars on the show, and how the pro dancers trained them.

Former contestants will be returning for the episode, as the show takes a look back at the journeys of a number of professionals from when they joined the BBC series until now.

The episode will air in-between the launch this weekend and the first live show in two weeks time meaning there won't be a gap.

Fans normally have a two week break in-between shows, but this time they'll get all the Strictly content they could want.

The BBC have confirmed the special episode will air on Saturday 14th of September.

It's also been revealed that the start time for the show will be 7pm, with it finishing at 8:15pm.


The BBC said of the episode: "Strictly The Professionals will look at how the current crop of professionals made their journey to the Strictly ballroom, revealing how they discovered dance and the sacrifices they made to get to the top of their game.

"The programme will also offer viewers an exclusive backstage pass to Strictly HQ, revealing some of the show’s most guarded secrets – including how the celeb and professional pairings are decided by producers."

Some of the celebrities confirmed to be returning include Jeremy Vine, Ed Balls and Ann Widdecombe.

There'll be plenty more familiar faces on the show too, so viewers should tune in.

They'll be heading down memory lane from their time on the show, joining the professionals on screen.

Viewers will be treated to comments and highlights from the past years of the BBC series, just in time for the new series a week later.

Strictly Come Dancing 2019 launches on Saturday 7th September on BBC One.
