Zoë Ball returned to present spin-off show Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two. Judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood all returned and were joined on the judging panel by series 7 guest judge Darcey Bussell, who replaced Alesha Dixon.

On 20 June 2012, it was announced that Katya Virshilas would not be returning to the show as a professional. On 23 June 2012, it was announced that Karen Hauer of Burn the Floor fame would replace Virshilas.

The show was broadcast from Wembley Arena on 17 November with all proceeds going to the BBC charity, Children in Need. The show on 10 November was hosted by Daly and Winkleman while Forsyth took a break before the Wembley Arena show.

Olympic gymnast Louis Smith and professional partner Flavia Cacace won the series on 22 December 2012. The final was also notable as Pasha Kovalev became the second male professional dancer to reach two consecutive finals, equaling the record of Ian Waite, Erin Boag, Lilia Kopylova and Aliona Vilani.

Couples

As with last series there will be 14 celebrities taking part, the professionals were revealed on 23 June 2012. The full line-up was revealed on 10 September 2012 on The One Show.

Johnny Ball was originally partnered with Aliona Vilani; however, following an injury sustained in training before the first live show, Iveta Lukosiute was hired as a replacement partner. This was officially intended as a short-term measure until Vilani was able to return; however, since Ball was voted out with Lukosiute in week 2, Vilani did not return competitively.
