This series will make Strictly history with the show's first ever same-sex dance pair. Nicola Adams OBE will be part of an all-female dance partnership. 

Putting some sparkle and shimmer back into our Saturday and Sunday nights, the BBC has started to announce the celebrity dancers who will be taking to the dance floor.

First look at Idris Elba’s new comedy In the Long Run

In The Long Run

The comedy features an ensemble cast with Elba at the helm as family man Walter Easmon, alongside wife Agnes (Madeline Appiah), son Kobna (Sammy Kamara), Walter's younger brother Valentine (Jimmy Akingbola) and Walter’s best mate Bagpipes played by comedy favourite Bill Bailey.

The series, loosely based on Idris Elba’s own childhood, follows the story of Walter and Agnes Easmon whose life is all about quiet routine. They arrived from Sierra Leone 13 years ago and work hard to pay the bills, raise son Kobna as well as support their family back home.
