The first week of competing is nearly here and now we know the songs and dances we're more excited than ever!

We've met all of the celebrity contestants, found out who they've been partnered with and had a small taste of their dancing ability at the start of September - but the best is yet to come.

We now know what all of the celebrities' dances are going to be for the first week of competing - as well as the songs they'll be performing them to.

The 15 different couples will be taking a variety of different dances for the first time - although there is a SURPRISING amount of Cha Cha Cha's going about.

Hilariously, one couple will be dancing to a football anthem, so we can't wait to see them boogie to that.

New Strictly pro Luba has been paired with Olympic rower, James Cracknell and they'll be cutting some shapes to the old classic by Spandeau Ballet, Gold.

Whilst comedian Chris Ramsay is going to be performing a routine to the absolute feel-good anthem, Juice by Lizzo.

And ABBA fans will be over the moon to find out that Emma Barton will be dancing to Honey Honey with partner Anton Du Beke - we cannot wait!
