Strictly Come Dancing is just weeks away from kicking off and now fans have been given a sneak peek at this year's professionals.

The show's pros have already pre-recorded their routines that will be shown each week – and taken some super glam pics while they're at it.

The first image shows Johannes Radebe, Janette Manrara, Oti Mabuse, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Karen Hauer and Dianne Buswell striking a pose on the dance floor.

The female dancers appear to be dressed as flapper girls while the men are wearing sharp suits reminiscent of the 1920s.

Another shot shows the entire female professional line up, with some of them stood on tables and sat at chairs.

Aussie beauty Dianne, 31, looks incredible in a blue velvet dress which features a daring thigh-high split and feathered hem.

Oti, 30, looks equally as gorgeous in a mustard one-shouldered dress and is sporting a curly pink hairdo.

Janette, 36, flaunts some side-boob and plenty of flesh in a glittering backless dress which features jewelled straps and a frilly hemline.

The dancer took to Instagram to share one of the professional images and wrote alongside it: "First glimpse of what’s to come. Get ready everyone!"

The next image shows Nadiya Bychkova taking centre stage in a gold dress and matching heels as Aljaž Škorjanec comes up behind her and the rest of the group dance to the side.

The Strictly Come Dancing professionals started rehearsals in July for their group performances and in order to do so they had to isolate in one big bubble for two weeks.

There will now be further isolation with the professionals and the celebrities in order to create more bubbles.

As a result of this, acts will be able to have close contact routines, meaning no dances will be off limits.

The BBC’s Charlotte Moore previously revealed that there was "a lot of work" being done behind the scenes to make the show possible following the Covid-19 pandemic.

She told The Times: "We’re looking at how that would work. Could you quarantine people? Can we test everyone before filming? There’s a lot of work being done. It’s a big task."

It was recently confirmed that four pros had been dropped as competitors this year and will not be paired with a celebrity.

Nadiya along with Neil Jones, Graziano di Prima and Nancy Xu won’t be receiving famous partners but will take part in all of the professional performances.

Strictly Executive Producer Sarah James confirmed the news after outlining how the celebrities are able to dance with the professionals given the social distancing guidelines.

She said: "The way we're doing that is by doing two different things – we're using close contact cohort, which is an industry workplace guideline, and also bubbles.

"Close contact cohorts apply to people who need to work more closely together and break social distancing in order to do their job.

"To be in a CCC you have to be with just one person and you are regularly tested to be in a CCC.

"On top of that we are also asking our celebrities and dancers to be part of an exclusive support bubble, which means that one half of the party has to live alone.

"So either the dancer or the celebrity will be living alone in order to form the exclusive support bubble," she added.

Going on to how that would affect those who were not partnered with a celebrity, she explained: "We have four professional dancers who won't be partnering celebrities this year – they are Nadiya Bychkova, Neil Jones, Graziano di Prima and Nancy Xu.

"So we have two males and two females who perform CCCs together and they'll be able to dance in the guest music acts."
