It was the launch of Strictly Come Dancing 2014 on Sunday night as the new batch of celebrities found out who they would be partnering with for the competition.

The 86-year-old delivered a flashmob tap dance to the studio audience before handing over to new presenting duo Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly.

During the pre-recorded show, the celebs discovered who their dancing partners were and took to the dance floor for the very first time!

Last year's winners, model Abbey Clancy and her pro partner Aljaz Skorjanec, also delivered a special performance.

So what's next? The celebs and their pro dancers will be rehearsing hard for the next three weeks in time for the first of the live shows. Viewers will then get a chance to see the celebs unleash their talents (live) on the dance floor!

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 September.

In the meantime, check out the celeb pairings below:
