After much speculation as to which professional dancers would be returning for the 2019 series of Strictly Come Dancing, the line-up has finally been announced by bosses, and it doesn't disappoint!

Strictly legend Anton Du Beke will return, as well as last year's winner Kevin Clifton, and dad-to-be, Gorka Márquez. Fan favourites AJ Pritchard, Oti Mabuse and Dianne Buswell will also return, with controversial dancer Katya Jones also keeping her place on the show, despite THAT kiss with Seann Walsh last year.
