Series 17

In this series, three new dance styles were introduced (contemporary, jazz and street) as part of a new category called "couple's choice", giving a total of 18 dance styles in the competition.[2]

The winners were Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton, becoming the seventh pair of winners to have never achieved a perfect score.[3] Runners-up Ashley Roberts and Faye Tozer matched Caroline Flack's record in 2014 of scoring perfect 40s for all three dances in the final. Roberts also set a record of achieving the most 40s during a series, with five. Roberts also matched Alexandra Burke’s record of the most 10s during the series, with 32. Tozer also set the record of most consecutive ‘10’ scoring dances, with 11.

The series was Bussell's last series as a judge, with Motsi Mabuse later announced as her replacement. It was also the last series to feature Pasha Kovalev who was replaced by Nancy Xu.

Professional dancersEdit

On 30 May 2018, the list of professionals returning for the sixteenth series was revealed. Professionals from the last series who did not return included Series 1 winner Brendan Cole and Chloe Hewitt.[4] Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe and Luba Mushtuk replaced them.[5] As in the last two series, Neil Jones did not have a celebrity partner. Mushtuk and Radebe also did not have celebrity partners, however, Di Prima did.[6][7]

CouplesEdit

On 13 August 2018, the first three celebrities announced to be participating in the series were Katie Piper, Faye Tozer and Danny John-Jules.[8][9][10] Celebrity reveals continued across that month, before concluding on 21 August on Good Morning Britain.[11][7]
