Strictly Come Dancing

BBC1, 9pm

The dance contest returns for its ninth series, as Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly host the first of this weekend's two live shows. Seven of the 14 couples perform either a waltz or a cha-cha-cha each night, beginning with Alex Jones, Anita Dobson, Audley Harrison, Dan Lobb, Lulu (left), Robbie Savage and Russell Grant, watched by the ever-critical judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Alesha Dixon. Tomorrow night, the final seven hoof it out.
