Strictly Come Dancing returned for its fourteenth series with a launch show on 3 September on BBC One, with the live shows starting on 23 September 2016. Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman returned as hosts, while Zoë Ball returned to host Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two on BBC Two. Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell returned as judges. This was Goodman's final series as a judge.

Contents

The series was won by BBC Sport presenter Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton. Oduba becomes the first champion to have ever landed in the bottom two more than once during the series. Runner-up Danny Mac tied Caroline Flack's record from series 12 for the most maximum scores of 40 by any contestant, with four.

Professional dancers

On 28 June 2016, the list of professionals who were returning for the fourteenth series was revealed. Professionals from the last series who will not return include last series' and two time professional winner of the show Aliona Vilani, former professional winner Ola Jordan, and two time professional finalist Kristina Rihanoff as well as Gleb Savchenko and Tristan MacManus. Joanne Clifton will partner a celebrity after one series out of the competition. The leaving professionals will be replaced by Katya Jones and her husband Neil Jones, Burn the Floor dancer Gorka Márquez, former Dancing with the Stars U.S. troupe member Oksana Platero and ex-Britain's Got Talent contestants AJ Pritchard, and Chloe Hewitt. Because the professional dancers outnumbered the celebrities, Chloe Hewitt and Neil Jones did not partner a celebrity, although they are on standby for any pro that is injured or unable to compete and still do group dances and appear on the Strictly companion programme, It Takes Two.

Couples

On 8 August 2016, former Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls was announced as the first celebrity contestant on the series, with more celebrities being announced throughout the month. The line up was completed on 22 August on The One Show.

On 11 October, pop star Will Young announced that he was leaving the show for "personal reasons".
