'Strictly Come Dancing' (sometimes shortened to Strictly or SCD) is a British television show, featuring celebrities with professional dance partners competing in Ballroom and Latin dances. The title of the show suggests a continuation of the long-running series Come Dancing, with an allusion to the film Strictly Ballroom. The format has been exported to 32 other countries (see Dancing with the Stars), and has also inspired a modern-dance themed spin-off Strictly Dance Fever.

The show has run on BBC One since 15 May 2004, primarily on Saturday evenings. The eighth series ended on 18 December 2010. A further seven stand-alone Christmas Specials have also been produced, in consecutive years from 2004 to 2010. The show has also done 5 charity specials. Since the fourth series, the show has also been aired in high definition on BBC One HD.
