BBC Entertainment (channel 120 on DStv): will host the premiere of Series 9 of Strictly Come Dancing on March 31 at 20h00 and 22h00.

Sir Bruce Forsyth and his glamorous co-host Tess Daly present the sparkling semi-final of the ever-popular celebrity dancing competition. As the competition shimmies toward its nerve-wracking latter stages, the celebrity contestants and their limber professional partners will have to perform a Ballroom or a Latin American dance to be critiqued and scored by the panel of expert judges.

The star names taking part in this series include impressionist Rory Bremner, boxer Audley Harrison, ex-footballer Robbie Savage, pop star and actress Holly Valance and Australian soap legend Jason Donovan.

Following all the contestants performances the judges’ scores are combined with the results of a public telephone vote and the two lowest ranked couples must dance again for their survival in the competition.
