Strictly Come Dancing 2019: The full list of couples

These are who each celebrity dancer has been paired up with.

The full list of couples competing in Strictly Come Dancing’s 17th series are preparing for the first live show this Saturday 21st September.

Fans will be delighted that Anton Du Beke has finally been paired with a celebrity capable of making it to the grand final, EastEnders star Emma Barton.

After finally lifting the glitterball trophy alongside his now-girlfriend Stacey Dooley, Kevin Clifton has been paired with Anneka Rice, whose Strictly future is already in doubt after she injured her shoulder outside of training.

After a year in the spotlight following his estranged wife Katya’s kissing scandal, Neil Jones has finally been given a partner by Strictly bosses – and football star Alex Scott is even being touted as a favourite to win.

Johannes Radebe, from South Africa, has also secured a celebrity partner for the first time, former Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley. He previously appeared as a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing South Africa for two seasons, both times reaching the final.

Here are the couples for 2019:
