BBC BRIT’s cherished dancing competition, Strictly Come Dancing, is back for a 17th season with a brand new judge, new professional dancer and exciting new line-up of celebrity hopefuls, all competing for that coveted glitter ball trophy.
Host Michael McIntyre is at the very top of his game in the fourth series of this hugely popular show, packed with wit, warmth, hilarious moments and big star names.
Celebrity guests in Series 4 include top international singing sensations such as Michael Bublé, Cheryl, George Ezra and Little Mix, who perform their smash hit single ‘Woman Like Me’. While presenters Holly Willoughby, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford fall victim to the brilliant ‘Send to All’ text game.
Popular segment Midnight Gameshow returns, where Michael wakes up startled couples in the middle of the night to answer a series of questions. A consistent ratings-winner and hailed as the best variety show in years, Big Show's delightful mix of chat, songs, comedy and audience interaction is an entertaining, family viewing treat.
Edith (Alison Steadman) and Phil (John Cleese) are still determined to escape to the Mediterranean. But the dream is drifting further away as they wait for their house to sell. Edith’s son, Roger (Jason Watkins), hits on the idea of running Edith's spare bedroom as a bed and breakfast – an idea he’s not quite got round to telling his mother yet.
Meanwhile, Queenie (Anne Reid) can’t bear the thought of Edith moving away, so she tries to help them sell their house, but with ulterior motives.
