THE BBC have given fans their first look at the Strictly Come Dancing cast and judges on the new socially distanced set.
The dancing competition was forced to make a series of changes in order to go on air during the pandemic.
Now viewers can get a sneak at how the social distancing works for BBC One’s flagship show.
Behind them on the iconic stage are the band, who are also separated.
There are only three judges until the semi-finals as Bruno Tonioli is not allowed to fly from America while he’s filming Dancing With The Stars.
Instead, Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse take the reigns.
Much like the hosts, the three are sat on three individual purple podiums split two metres apart.
The only people able to break social distancing guidelines are the contestants and pro dancers. They’ll be in a bubble together to help stop spread of the virus.
This means they won’t be able to visit their friends or family until the end of the show.
The live performance on the first night is Joel Corry and MNEK, with professionals Nadiya Bychkova and Graziano Di Prima dancing together for it.
Other professionals joining them are Neil Jones with Nancy Xu.
The Sun Online didn’t spoil Saturday’s surprise by revealing where the leak is or who is paired with who – but fans who stumbled across the pairings were left devastated.
