Week Two is ready to rock!

Last weekend, Strictly returned with a double-header of dance excellence. In fact, it saw some of the highest ever Week One scores (remind yourselves of the current leaderboard).

Those scores will be carried over to tonight, where all 15 couples will be taking to the floor in a series of dances that threaten to outdo even last week's epic performances. A high school prom, a 50s diner, a Charleston like you've never seen it, a couple of Waltzes to bring a tear to your eye, and even a trip to the seaside - this is going to be nothing short of incredible!

And then it's up to YOU! Make sure you're registered with a BBC account and signed in, so you can save your favourites. More info here on how the vote works.

The action commences at 6:20pm, but you can get the conversation going by commenting below. Who's your favourite? Who's in danger? Who deserves your vote? Get involved, and we'll see you over on BBC One...
