14 celebrities have signed up to Strictly cause. There is a lot

0:00:040:00:08

pressure. Bring on Strictly. 14 stars are stepping off the

0:00:080:00:14

carpet and onto the red hot ballroom floor. The people - the line-up is

0:00:140:00:18

really good. Can't wait to see them dancing. The press. On

0:00:180:00:25

looks like the best series yet. And the politicians. Looking forward to

0:00:250:00:31

the Hokey Cokey. Partnerships been formed. Some look harmonious.

0:00:310:00:36

I am so happy. Others, more marriages of convenience. More

0:00:360:00:41

explosive than nitroglycerin. One thing is sure, it's time to bring

0:00:410:00:48

home the ballroom bacon. Who will sizzle? Taxi! Who will get burnt?

up! 14 stars have spent three weeks building up to their ballroom debut

0:03:060:03:09

live in front of the nation and that can only mean one thing: fear,

0:03:090:03:13

lots of it. Yes, tonight seven couples will perform for the first

0:03:130:03:18

time and dance either a waltz or a cha-cha-cha. Tomorrow night the

0:03:180:03:21

0:04:520:04:57

fantastic? Look at them up together. Oh, wonderful.

0:04:570:05:02

they all are. A few weeks ago Bruno described you as a pick 'n' mix, you

0:05:020:05:06

know, like a bag of sweets. he is right. We've got Robbie

0:05:060:05:16

Savage, a hard centre; Russell Grant, a soft centre. LAUGHTER . And

0:05:160:05:20

Edwina and Nancy, a couple of nut clusters. The good news is that none

0:05:200:05:24

of our stars are leaving this weekend but the bad news is the

0:05:240:05:30

judges will still be scoring. But there's no time to rest their

0:05:310:05:32

laurels because scores will be carried forward to next week and

0:05:320:05:38

somebody - that means one of you will be the first to leave.

0:05:380:05:44

AUDIENCE: : ah! This year we have live commentary

0:05:440:05:48

from Karen Hardy and joining her this weekend is Katy Brand. Hi guys,

0:05:480:05:56

there they are. Hello. If you want to hear their witty critique,

0:05:560:06:01

press the red button on your handset now. It's only when they are

0:06:010:06:06

dancing, isn't it? Yes. I don't want any witty critique going on

0:06:060:06:11

when I'm doing my jokes. Shall we kick off the series? I think we

0:06:110:06:14

should. First up is someone I'm particularly looking forward to

0:06:140:06:17

seeing dance, she is such a beautiful girl,

0:06:170:06:25

her partner Artem Chigvintsev. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

0:06:250:06:30

Good luck. Lovely. Hollie said to Good luck. Lovely. Hollie said to

0:06:300:06:34

me: why do I have to be first? I said: it was done fairly, I drew the

0:06:340:06:42

name out of the hat and it took me 27 goes at it, but - LAUGHTER -

0:06:420:06:50

did it eventually. Anyway, here they are in training.

0:06:500:07:00
0:07:000:07:02

She is a pop temptress but it was She is a pop temptress but it was

0:07:020:07:03

She is a pop temptress but it was Neighbours which gave her a big

0:07:030:07:03

Neighbours which gave her a big Neighbours which gave her a big

0:07:030:07:07

She is a break. I reallied a single just

0:07:070:07:12

before I left Neighbours so I went into a serious baptism of fire into

0:07:120:07:16

the music industry. I think people assume that I can dance, but when

0:07:160:07:24

you are just in music videos, you just have to look funky, and you

0:07:240:07:27

have ten dancers behind you. You have a crew making you look

0:07:270:07:31

This is just me and Artem, and he last year's winner which means

0:07:310:07:39

we've got a lot to live up to as well. That boggles my marbles.

0:07:390:07:44

Last year, I won the glitterball and Last year, I won the glitterball and

0:07:440:07:47

I also got myself a girlfriend. It would be amazing to win twice in a

0:07:470:07:54

row. I'm struggling with the cha cha. Artem doesn't

0:07:540:08:00

out willy-nilly. Oh my goodness, what was that? Don't get me wrong, I

0:08:000:08:07

don't hate it. You really have to be good, to get down. Is that another

0:08:070:08:10

of your compliments? He is hard to please, and even though no one is

0:08:100:08:13

kicked off this week, hopefully I will impress the judges with

0:08:130:08:22

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

0:08:320:10:04

come here, the pair of you. Thank come here, the pair of you. Thank

0:10:040:10:07

Dancing the cha-cha-cha, you for a lovely start. That was

0:10:070:10:12

beautiful. Thank you. I reckon will be great, I really do. Do you

0:10:120:10:16

feel glad that one is over? Definitely. Whilst you two get

0:10:160:10:21

breath back it's a good time to welcome our fabulous

0:10:210:10:25

welcome our fabulous singers, Dave Arch and his wonderful, wonderful

0:10:250:10:31

orchestra. APPLAUSE. And, of course, we have our judges,

0:10:310:10:35

who I've missed terribly over summer. Alesha, I've missed you

0:10:350:10:44

saying those little words of wisdom. I've missed Craig, I've missed you

0:10:440:10:48

saying daarhling, daarhling. LAUGHTER. I really missed that. And

0:10:480:10:55

Len, I've missed you saying severrrn! And Bruno, I've missed

0:10:550:10:59

saying - to be honest, I never know what you are saying. I will speak

0:10:590:11:05

very, very slowly. Yes, and little softer. Maybe. Anyway, Len,

0:11:050:11:10

let's get stuck in here. What did you think as a first offering? Well,

0:11:100:11:14

it's not the best first dance I've ever seen -

0:11:140:11:24
0:11:240:11:25

AUDIENCE: Oh oh! But I tell you what, it was close. It could have

0:11:250:11:31

been a bit crisper in the action. You need to get the natural hip

0:11:310:11:34

action but I don't know who is coming but they need to be blooming

0:11:340:11:38

good to beat that. Well done. APPLAUSE.

0:11:380:11:48
0:11:480:11:50

Thank you. OK, Alesha, my darling. Holly, you are a very, very good

0:11:500:11:55

dancer, I was very surprised by the standard, your technique is actually

0:11:550:11:57

at a high standard for the beginning of the show and I think you could

0:11:570:12:02

push it even more. Oh, she will. It's those early stages with

0:12:020:12:12

nerve bus I think you are going to be sensational. Bruno, and don't

0:12:120:12:20

Holly, you can give plenty of very Holly, you can give plenty of very

0:12:200:12:26

tasty eye candy, flowingly sensuous, the footwork was good, the extension

0:12:260:12:30

excellent, but with all that it needs more bite. Len was right, you

0:12:300:12:33

need to go for it with more strength. Go for it because you've

0:12:330:12:37

got it. Thank you. That's wonderful. Absolutely wonderful.

0:12:370:12:47
0:12:470:12:47

Lovely. Very good, Bruno. The lina. Is working then?

0:12:470:12:52

Craig? You need to finish crisply, Craig? You need to finish crisply,

0:12:520:12:52

Craig? You need to finish crisply, he had flexed knees throughout,

0:12:520:12:54

he had flexed knees throughout, he had flexed knees throughout,

0:12:540:12:55

Craig? You there was hardly any straight leg in

0:12:550:12:58

there which lacked hip action unfortunately, I didn't like your

0:12:580:13:02

walks, they are a bit clumsy but I know you can improve those, I

0:13:020:13:05

thought you had fantastic flexibility and I absolutely loved

0:13:050:13:09

the layout. However, the first layout, when you did your extension,

0:13:090:13:13

unfortunately that didn't quite make it. You never quite got there,

0:13:130:13:18

darling, but a lot to work on lot of good actually. Thank you.

0:13:180:13:28

Be proud of that. A very good Off you go. Be good to her. Off you

0:13:280:13:38
0:13:380:13:39

Come on, my darling, first dance of Come on, my darling, first dance of

0:13:390:13:45

the pressure, no pressure, and what a dance. Good fun. You've just

0:13:450:13:50

kicked off Strictly 2011 with the reigning champion of 2010. Does

0:13:500:13:54

get any better? I hope so. The judges think you have more to give.

0:13:540:13:58

Would you agree? I definitely agree. It was excellent and

0:13:580:14:00

constructive criticism and I am going to really work on it this

0:14:000:14:04

week. Artem, do you feel pressure to hold onto the title? I don't

0:14:040:14:14

want to think about it, let's take it week by-week. The scores are in.

0:14:140:14:24
0:14:240:14:34

All right, a strong start, and the All right, a strong start, and the

0:14:340:14:40

first severrrn of the series. Has Holly set the standard? Nobody is

0:14:400:14:44

leaving tonight and the carry over to next week. Anybody

0:14:440:14:49

else nervous? I'm nervous for them. Six more couples tonight, seven

0:14:490:14:53

tomorrow. You can't beat in the ballroom, right, Bruce?

0:14:530:14:58

right. Now for our next couple, Lobb and his partner Katya

0:14:580:15:07

Virshilas. A very popular man. Now, Dan hasn't been sure how to describe

0:15:070:15:12

himself on the show. You know, TV presenter, breakfast star, he

0:15:120:15:19

to me "Bruce, how would you describe someone who presents breakfast every

0:15:190:15:23

day?", I said "A waiter, get me a day?", I said "A waiter, get me

0:15:230:15:27

cup of coffee", and he did. I think I've got myself a butler. Anyway,

0:15:270:15:35

Daybreak's Dan is swapping his early Daybreak's Dan is swapping his early

0:15:350:15:39

morning sofa for the Strictly floor and he is doing it for the

0:15:390:15:43

boys. I am trying to champion that man who spends his social

0:15:430:15:47

around the dance floor, people watching, as opposed to being

0:15:470:15:53

involved. I am fearful of the dancing element of Strictly Come

0:15:540:15:57

Dancing. If it was Extremely Come Standing, Extremely Come

0:15:570:16:01

the Pub with Your Mates, I would all right about the process, I

0:16:010:16:06

think. Isn't she gorgeous? Yes, absolutely.

0:16:060:16:11

Blokings, I know you aren't going to believe me because Katya is quite

0:16:110:16:18

attractive - but I'm all about dancing.

0:16:180:16:19

I'm so looking forward to getting I'm so looking forward to getting

0:16:190:16:23

back into the training room. I'm little bit tough but if I am going

0:16:230:16:28

to spend ten hours a day in a with someone, I want him to make

0:16:280:16:32

laugh. Dan and I are very creatures

0:16:320:16:36

going to be a bit of a battle. Listen to what I say. Always

0:16:360:16:41

listening. The relationship is complex. You play good cop, bad cop,

0:16:410:16:45

don't you? As long as there's more good than bad - we will have our

0:16:450:16:50

clashes. I'm not here to be your Mummy. Shut up, just say yes or

0:16:500:16:54

no. I think it will be a successful partnership. I like it when you

0:16:540:16:59

happy because I know I've something good.

0:16:590:17:09
0:17:090:17:09

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 46 seconds

0:17:090:18:41

Dancing the waltz, Dan Lobb and All right? Very elegant. Oh, very

0:18:410:18:41

All right? Very elegant. Oh, very All right? Very elegant. Oh, very

0:18:410:18:42

elegant indeed. That was beautiful. elegant indeed. That was beautiful.

0:18:420:18:45

Dancing the waltz, Isn't she wonderful? Yes, she's

0:18:450:18:49

getting there. Thank you. couple of weeks, we will have her

0:18:490:18:54

dancing. OK, good. I'm glad. can I say? Len? It was a bit wooden

0:18:540:18:59

and you lacked rise and - and you lacked rise an.

0:18:590:19:07

AUDIENCE: Oh oh! Don't get like that already. It

0:19:070:19:11

lacked musicality but let me tell you, the hold was good, the footwork

0:19:110:19:16

was good, this isn't an easy and for a tall man you did very

0:19:160:19:20

well. You are right. The posture was good. You are right. Alesha

0:19:200:19:24

darling, what did you think? Very, very elegant, Dan. I know you

0:19:240:19:28

so nervous but you had nothing worry about, you looked very

0:19:280:19:31

competent, you looked very relaxed, you looked like you were leading

0:19:310:19:37

Katya as well and you should proud of yourself. There you are.

0:19:370:19:46

Now then, Bruno? Mr Lob, I have to tell you something, it was quite

0:19:460:19:50

accomplished for a first go but at times you had such a gloomy look,

0:19:510:19:57

you looked like Adrian Chiles on the sofa. It's the Look of Love, you

0:19:570:20:00

look at her, lovely smile, beautiful, and then you turn

0:20:000:20:03

and you are like that. You have to conduct a performance that is

0:20:040:20:08

actually believable all the way through. It takes time, you've got

0:20:080:20:13

time to get there. Yes, you were bit nervous, that's why. And you

0:20:130:20:23
0:20:230:20:23

have a lovely smile, so use it. Thanks, Bruce, so have you. He is

0:20:230:20:32

bit lippy. Craig? I thought it was a very tentative lead, unlike

0:20:320:20:37

Alesha. You have to be careful you work in parallel. Top line I thought

0:20:370:20:41

was hideously rigid which means have no swing or sway or any of

0:20:410:20:45

that. Rise and fall unfortunately was all in the knees rather than

0:20:450:20:52

going through the heel, and transitions I thought were a bit

0:20:520:20:58

crumbly. You need your head more to the left, darling, and

0:20:580:21:04

smile! But it was his first time! Exactly, thank you, Alesha. CHEERING

0:21:040:21:10

Don't you listen to him. Away you Don't you listen to him. Away you

0:21:100:21:20
0:21:200:21:22

Dan the man. You were great. You Dan the man. You were great. You

0:21:220:21:26

were wonderful. Alesha loved it. Yes, her Mum is my biggest fan

0:21:260:21:29

apparently so as long as I keep the Dixon family happy I will be

0:21:290:21:38

right. Sorted. Your first taste of Strictly, hungry for more? Erm,

0:21:380:21:44

yeah. Yes. Were those three weeks the longest of your life? No, we

0:21:440:21:54
0:21:540:21:56

started to enjoy it really and to find a rhythm.

0:21:560:22:06
0:22:060:22:18

24 from the judges. Mr Lobb, as 24 from the judges. Mr Lobb, as

0:22:180:22:21

Bruno says. Coming up later we are serving knockout entertainment

0:22:210:22:24

Audley Harrison, Robbie Savage Anita Dobson, plus Russell Grant.

0:22:240:22:26

Who can predict what's going to happen? Not even Russell can

0:22:260:22:30

tonight. Back to you, Bruce. Thank you, Tess. Next up, it's

0:22:300:22:40
0:22:400:22:40

her partner Brendan Cole. CHEERING. What a couple. What a pair. Now, you

0:22:400:22:45

remember three weeks ago when Lulu and Brendan were paired together,

0:22:450:22:50

Brendan picked her up and threw her over his shoulder, poor thing.

0:22:500:22:53

That's typical Brendan, the competition hasn't even started

0:22:530:22:56

he has already done an illegal lift. LAUGHTER.

0:22:560:23:01

Will he never learn? By the way, lot of people thought Lulu was

0:23:010:23:05

disappointed when she got Brendan. She wasn't disappointed; she was

0:23:050:23:13

devastated. LAUGHTER Here they are in training.

0:23:130:23:21

Entertainment legend, Lulu. Now, Entertainment legend, Lulu. Now,

0:23:210:23:25

what is it she does again? I'm a singer, I'm a song writer, I'm an

0:23:250:23:28

actress, I'm a mother, I'm a grandmother, I'm a businessman,

0:23:280:23:32

sometimes model. I never talking. Used to have a television

0:23:320:23:38

series and I used to get a few dance directions but I've watched them. I

0:23:380:23:46

am pretty sad. Brendan Cole! When I was told I had Brendan, I went: oh!

0:23:460:23:51

First of all he has a bad boy reputation, secondly he is so tall.

0:23:510:23:56

Actually I was thrilled he picked me up and I didn't have to say

0:23:560:23:59

more. That was the end of that. think I am a very nice person. Most

0:23:590:24:07

people I work with I do get along with. Most. Watch this space.

0:24:070:24:09

Lulu is a little ball of energy. Lulu is a little ball of energy.

0:24:090:24:13

want to dance, I want to dance. But I didn't expect to struggle quite so

paramedics? They are round the corner. Yes. OK, I can send for

0:26:460:26:53

them any time you like. No, I'm OK. Well done indeed. You are such a

wonderful sport. Lulu, I just want to thank you for getting the party

0:26:570:27:00

started. How about that. ball of energy and you are

0:27:000:27:04

and I honestly believe you have of potential. I know it went

wrong but do you know what, my love, it doesn't matter, you've got

0:27:080:27:14

first one out the way and you will be back next week. Exactly. Now,

0:27:140:27:24
0:27:240:27:26

what's that muppet doing there? Lulu, I got to do this: well, well,

0:27:260:27:33

well, well! What are you doing? It was singing with Lulu at Wembley

arena, forget all the steps, nobody cares. The energy - I tell you, you

0:27:380:27:44

are a great performer. The energy was great. She is. The. The steps

0:27:440:27:50

went down the toilet. That's exactly how I choreographed it.

Almost. Almost. Almost. OK, well, Craig - Len? What do you think?

0:28:180:28:25

There was plenty of boom bang abang but nothing to shout about really.

0:28:250:28:30

It's a shame because I've got great expectations for you. I know, no

0:28:300:28:34

pressure. I want you to do good but you cannot go wrong.

0:28:340:28:38

first rule of this thing and once you do your marks are going to

0:28:380:28:43

tumble so just try and work on nailing the choreography, that's the

you, Bruce. Thank you, Tess. Our next couple is Audley Harrison and

0:30:100:30:17

his partner Natalie Lowe. APPLAUSE. Now, Audley told me he is a bit

0:30:170:30:21

worried about what dancing might to his image because boxing is such

0:30:210:30:27

a manly sport. I said: what? Manly sport? You must be joking. Boxing

0:30:270:30:34

isn't a manly sport; you spend all day skipping, you wear all those

0:30:340:30:39

funny sparkly shorts and then they fight each other over a

0:31:070:31:07

Here they are in training. Harrison is hoping to perform as

0:31:070:31:12

well on the dance floor as he in the ring. Standing on the

0:31:120:31:15

podium, winning the gold medal was an amazing feeling that you can't

0:31:150:31:20

describe. The following year it got even more surreal and I got the MBE.

0:31:200:31:25

I believe I'm the biggest celebrity that you've had on Strictly before.

0:31:250:31:32

Believe me now? Every picture tells a story. Look

0:31:320:31:37

at these beauties, size 17 feet. My partner will be the boss. Actually

0:31:370:31:44

my wife is the lady boss but she can be temporary. Be gentle with me.

0:31:440:31:48

Go for gold, you know. I would absolutely love to hold that

light and grateful for someone the size of Everest. Yes. That's an

achievement. Watch your eyes and refine the footwork, but well done.

Exactly, I couldn't agree more. Craig? Hands, hands, hands,

who want to knock your block off. Right. How did that compare?

0:35:520:35:57

that was pretty tough but I enjoyed it. Craig is a tough guy, isn't he?

Are you going to take it on the chin from Craig? I might have to see

0:37:530:37:58

team mates screaming at you to get into position. In Strictly, who will

0:37:580:38:03

tell you? Nobody. My partner is probably thinking: oh, she is sweet.

0:38:030:38:07

But he is in for a shock. I'm coming for him.

0:38:070:38:10

Straight, straight. You know are not straight. I'm trying me

0:38:100:38:14

best. Robbie needs to stop thinking like a footballer. Stand up, you

0:38:140:38:19

are a dancer now. Every thing you do, she orders back.

Straight. Arms out. Stand up. Then I do that right, something else

there while Ola flew about like a wasp in a picnic but there was a lot

0:41:170:41:23

of dancing in there. You came out with good intent, plenty of attack

certainly requirement, like a lap of glory, hardly any dancing. You've

0:42:140:42:20

got to put the dancing in. Don't attack it all the time when it's not

0:42:200:42:24

necessary. A bit of finesse will do sometimes. Nice cleavage by the way.

Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly present the first part of a two-night Strictly spectacular. Holly Valance, Anita Dobson, Audley Harrison, Dan Lobb, Lulu, Robbie Savage and Russell Grant take to the floor with their professional partners to perform either a waltz or a cha cha cha. There are no phone votes, and no-one will be leaving the competition, but the couples are under pressure to impress the judges, who will still be scoring.
