The glitter, the spray tans, the six-packs, Claudia’s fringe and Tess’ awful jokes are back. And boy, is Planet Strictly planning to brighten up your weekend for the 14th series.

Is there anything more enduring than our nations soaps? Whether we watch them religiously or dip in and out; there is something about them that keeps them on all of our radars.
It may be the humour, the drama and the controversy; but I suspect it’s something simpler than that. For all the so-called reality tv on the box, the thing that mirrors the real world most consistently are the soaps.
With that in mind, we have a new series called The LWT List. Here we will be picking our favourites from Coronation Street, Eastenders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks, Home & Away and Neighbours.
There may be some appearances from Doctors, Eldorado, Crossroads, Night & Day and the US favourites as well.
But we want you to get involved. Do you have a favourite ‘doctor’ we shouldn’t ignore or which bad girl would you want on your side in a fight? Or who was the barman you wish could serve you?
