One of the first signs of the approach of winter is the new season of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC television.
Tonight we had the preview - the contestants were introduced to their dance partners and the contest proper will be shown commencing early October.
Those appearing include Ann Widdecombe, Felicity Kendal, Paul Daniels and Peter Shilton.

I'm afraid that in our household it will be compulsory viewing - we had at one time dance lessons .. we are not experts but do like to watch the contestants being put through their paces .
