Strictly Come Dancing’s male judges are seen vying for a turn with new judge Darcey Bussell in a trailer for the programme.

The ballet dancer, who replaces Alesha Dixon on the judging panel, joins her fellow judges for a spin round the floor in a mirrored, glitterball-style dress.

Len Goodman, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli battle over who can perform the slinkiest moves as they vie for a turn with their new colleague.

Revel Horwood choreographed the routine for the teaser, which was filmed at a glamorous country retreat, and it is the first time since the launch of Strictly that all the judges have been seen dancing together.

The series returns to BBC One on September 15 when viewers will see the contestants team up with their partners for the first time.

Among the competitors are former children’s TV presenter Johnny Ball - the oldest-ever entrant at 74 - and former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan.

Others reportedly taking part are Girls Aloud and Shrek The Musical star Kimberley Walsh and Jerry Hall.

Dixon bowed out of the show earlier this year to be a panellist on Britain’s Got Talent on ITV.
