Known for her quirky outfit choices, viewers were still floored at the choice of outfit saying the glittery number looked like ‘pyjamas’.

One Twitter user asked: “Has Claudia got her PJs on?”

While one wanted to know where to get a pair for his loved one: “The wife wants to know where Claudia got her pjs from?”

Many loved the outfit choice: “Claudia turning up in her pjs? I stan that energy.”

“I’m just here for Claudia’s jumpsuit. Cover me in sequins and pass the popcorn,” another added.

Aside from Claudia’s glam outfit, viewers were beyond excited to have their favourite show back on the telly.

The hosts explained changes made to the series so it could go ahead, the presenters explained the stars have been tested twice for coronavirus before entering the studio.

Tess said: “Usually we would pair up our celebrities right here in the ballroom but this year we’ve had to do things a bit differently.”

Claudia added: “Before tonight our celebrities and pros were tested for coronavirus twice and have already formed their Strictly bubbles.”

The pre-recorded episode sees celebrities matched up with their professional partners ahead of next week’s first live show.

Although they appear in the studio, the moment they met their partner for the first time had been previously filmed.

Bosses have been working around the clock to make sure they could bring back the popular series back in 2020 as coronavirus threatened to cancel its 18th year on telly.

But despite drastic measure brought in to protect the stars, Strictly was thrown into chaos when pop star Harvey Cantwell tested positive for COVID-19.

The show – filmed at Elstree Studios, in Borehamwood, Herts – has been cut from 12 to nine shows due to the pandemic.

The number of people on site has also been slashed – with everyone made to sign a self-declaration form promising they don’t have any COVID-19 symptoms.

Stars have been forced to isolate from their loved ones and face being thrown out of the series immediately if they test positive for coronavirus.

Dance partners formed an exclusive support bubble in order to break the government’s social distancing rules – but it meant one half of the pair must live alone.

There will be daily temperature checks, enforced social distancing and masks must be worn at all times.

A deep clean of the studio will also be carried out every day.

The BBC has warned viewers to prepare for major changes to the dance show.

The pro dancers have been isolating in a biosecure bubble at a nearby hotel and have pre-recorded 14 group dances with more than 300 costume changes.

Meanwhile Halloween week has been axed and the annual celebrity group dance won’t go ahead, with crew using augmented reality to give the illusion of a full dance floor instead.
