Paralympic table tennis champion Will Bayley dances on to our screens for the first time this Saturday on the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 launch show.

In what has become one of the most eagerly anticipated nights of the year for British television, Strictly returns for its 17th series at 7.10pm on BBC1.

Will is one of 15 celebrities who will be paired up with professional dancers during the launch programme, before embarking on a series of dancefloor challenges in subsequent weeks. The second show is a fortnight later on Saturday September 21, when the first celebrity will be voted out.

Can Will impress the watching British public? Time will tell, but we’re sure the table tennis family will be behind him all the way! We’ll be supporting Will throughout his time on the show, using the hashtags #BackBayley and #Strictly on Twitter and Instagram – join the conversation and show your support as well!
