Claudia Winkleman is to return to Strictly Come Dancing this weekend. She hasn’t hosted the show since the start of November, after her daughter was injured.
Eight-year-old Matilda was hurt in a fire-related accident on Halloween. A statement on the official Strictly blog said: “After last week's Blackpool extravaganza Claudia returns to the Strictly ballroom to co-host with Tess Daly.
Forget S Club 7's reunion, the tour on everyone's lips is Strictly Come Dancing's 2015 celebrity tour - and more famous faces have been added to the list.
Mark Wright, Caroline Flack and Alison Hammond have been announced as part of the line-up, joining rugby star Thom Evans and Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays on the UK tour, which starts in January
Len Goodman joined Amanda Holden and Phillip Schofield on This Morning to chat all things Strictly Come Dancing.
First of all, the presenters wanted to get to the bottom of rumours Len is set to retire from the show. He said: “I don’t know where that keeps cropping up from. I guess it's cause I’m getting on a bit. “I think it will probably the BBC that say ‘Len I think it’s time’, eventually.”
Strictly Come Dancing ladies Frankie Bridge, Caroline Flack and Pixie Lott say they go crazy after the show.
Asked if they were enjoying the glamour of the show, Frankie told TV Times: “There’s glitter everywhere, but it’s not really that glamorous! “We get ready so early because there are so many of us, so for the Halloween special I was green from about 10am until the end of the evening."
Steve Backshall is desperate to leave Strictly after clashing with dance partner Ola Jordan. The 40-year-old TV hunk may have wrestled snakes and dived with sharks in his role as a wildlife presenter, but he has struggled to meet Ola’s demands in rehearsals.
He has even told pals he is pining for his day job. The pair had a “reconciliation” on the show, but insiders claimed that was for the benefit of the cameras and behind the scenes there is still tension between them.
Strictly Come Dancing professional Robin Windsor will be returning to the dance floor this weekend. The 35-year-old Strictly favourite was forced to pull out of the current series after suffering a back injury in August, and is yet to appear on screen this year.
But that's all about to change this weekend when Windsor makes a comeback in a professional group number, RadioTimes.com has learned. Windsor will appear in a fun cops and robbers-inspired Charleston routine with his fellow professionals on Sunday's results show.

They spent eight weeks clashing on TV but Strictly Come Dancing judge admits he'll MISS axed tennis coach Judy Murray. (He might be the only one.) The acid-tongued judge compared Judy to a mannequin and even said she had less grace than a dog. But the pair got on brilliantly behind the scenes, it seems.
Craig joked on It Takes Two: "I have loved her backstage. She’s taken every inch of criticism. She’s only ever really hit me twice - and that was in the bar."
After eight week stint in the Ballroom Judy Murray exits the show after losing out to Casualty actress Sunetra Sarker in the Dance Off.
Judy left the competition on a high, making it to the legendary Blackpool Tower Ballroom and receiving her first 7s of the series from Judges Len and Bruno on Saturday night’s show. She also literally finished her Viennese Waltz on a high – as she was lifted several feet off the ground by a bunch of balloons. She scored a personal best of 24 out of 40.
The official BBC Children In Need single has topped the UK top 40 chart. The cover of version of Avicii's Wake Me Up was sung by choirmaster Gareth Malone's All Star Choir.
Great British Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc, actress Linda Robson and ex-footballer Fabrice Muamba were among the celebrities who formed the choir. They performed the single during Friday night's Children in Need event, which raised £32.6m to help disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

The Strictly Come Dancing contestants kept their dancing shoes on for a few extra hours after Saturday's show, it would appear.
Earlier on in the day, Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge, Pixie Lott, Mark Wright and more stormed the pier to watch the great Christmas lights switch on, before heading to the Blackpool Tower Ballroom to strut their stuff on the dancefloor. But the fun and games didn't stop there for the celebs. More drama ensued when they headed out to enjoy Blackpool's nightlife following the high-scoring night.
Strictly Come Dancing’s Mark Wright has been getting help from one of the judges. Former ballerina Darcey Bussell has admitted that she has been helping the reality star to overcome his nerves.
Bussell told Closer magazine: “Alison Hammond [was] the naughtiest [contestant], backstage she's hysterical, whereas Mark Wright panics. “I've given him breathing exercises - Strictly is like nothing he's ever done before."
Saturday evening’s Strictly Come Dancing saw the glitz and glamour brought to Blackpool as Pixie Lott and Simon Webbe danced their way to the top of the leader board with their dance partners.
Pixie continued her impressive domination of the competition as she took on the Paso Doble with her dance partner Trent Whiddon to an instrumental backtrack. Pixie’s fiery performance had the audience on their feet as Craig Revel Horwood said: ‘You are an indomitable force in this completion. You are almost invincible on that dance floor.’
