@HausOfDylan95 remarked: “Might have to support Nigel! #Strictly.”

Could viewers have correctly identified this year’s trophy lifter already?

After the two were paired together, host Claudia Winkelman warned Nigel that Katya could be quite strict.

She asked if he was ready, to which Nigel replied: “Everyone keeps telling me this and every time they tell me this I get more and more terrified, but I am pretending I’m really calm about it.”

When asked about what Katya has in store for Nigel, she said: “Ideas will come as we get to know each other”.

As well as Nigel, the line-up this year consists of Amanda Abbington, Angela Rippon, Layton Williams, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Eddie Kadi, Angela Scanlon, Zara McDermott, Adam Thomas, Nikita Kanda, Ellie Leach, Jody Cundy CBE, Bobby Brazier, Annabel Croft and Les Dennis.

All the pairings were finally revealed during the opening show and fans are no doubt looking forward to seeing the journeys of the famous faces.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.35pm on BBC One.
