Strictly Come Dancing 2018 – Week 1 Songs/Dances

Here we are almost at the start of a brand new series of Strictly. Week 1 is upon us on Saturday and whilst there won’t be a spoiler as there is no elimination there will be lots of stuff happening.

The BBC last night revealed the songs and dances that the new couples will be performing on Saturday night and I can reveal that they are……

  • Ashley & Pasha: Viennese Waltz to Perfect by Ed Sheeran featuring Beyoncé
  • Charles & Karen: Cha Cha Cha to Ain’t No Love (Ain’t Not Use) by Sub Sub featuring Melanie Williams
  • Danny & Amy: Foxtrot to Top Cat Theme by Hoyt Curtin
  • Dr Ranj & Janette: Cha Cha Cha to How Will I Know by Whitney Houston
  • Faye & Giovanni: Cha Cha Cha to Lullaby by Sigala featuring Paloma Faith
  • Graeme & Oti: Samba to Soul Limbo by Booker T and The M.G.’s
  • Joe & Dianne: Jive to Take On Me by A-Ha
  • Kate & Aljaž: Cha Cha Cha to Kiss by Tom Jones
  • Katie & Gorka: Waltz to When We Were Young by Adele
  • Lauren & AJ: Waltz to I’m Kissing You by Des’ree
  • Lee & Nadiya: Waltz to Take It To The Limit by The Eagles
  • Seann & Katya: Tango to SexyBack by Justin Timberlake
  • Stacey & Kevin: Quickstep to Dancing by Kylie Minogue
  • Susannah & Anton: Samba to Tico Tico by Carmen Miranda
  • Vick & Graziano: Jive to Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man

What do you think of the choices? You can let me know in the comments or over on Facebook or Twitter. No prizes yet but Saturday is the first day of the 2018 competition with £80 worth of prizes up for grabs each and every week. You can find out what you need to do to get involved right here.

The website has also recently moved hosts ready for when you guys start constantly refreshing it to see if the spoiler has come in. Since deploying the new servers on Sunday it has already cost me £11.45. If you want to, and can afford to, donate to help out with the site’s growing hosting needs which are needed to keep it up at peak times when the spoilers come in you can do so using the button below or preferably using THIS LINK

  1. Oh dear. Poor Anton. Me thinks that they’re hoping the Anton fan club will keep them in for a couple of weeks. Can’t see it personally .

    Come on Danny!!! (Big fan of both Red Dwarf and Death in Paradise. That’s the only reason)

    1. Hi Big D congratulations your comment has been selected at random out of all the comments received this week and you have won a £20 amazon uk voucher. Please email within 7 days accepting the prize (I’m no longer able to email you directly like I have like when you’ve won in previous years as I can no longer see email addresses of my commenters due to GDPR). Your prize will be emailed out by reply to the email address you email me from by the end of November

  2. Is it just me, or did the music seem a little more jazzily arranged on the first show? I loved all the dances and music, but think it’s a real shame that Anton never seems to get anyone that can dance even a little bit!
