KEEP DANCING:

The popularity of Strictly with all ages was shown in the 2013 visit’s opening number, when scores of dancers young and old took to the floor in what was the biggest opening dance seen on the show.

Twelve amateur ballroom dancers, aged 10 to 14 took to the floor, alongside more than 40 amateurs in their 40s to 70s, as well as the celebrity contestants and their professional partners.

The Tower Ballroom’s vast floor was a whirl of colour as they packed into the venue.
