How Many Seasons of Strictly Come Dancing Are There?

Strictly is one of the longest-running television shows currently on air, with 15 seasons since 2004.

This year’s series is the show’s 16th. We’ve had three male winners in a row heading into 2018, with Joe McFadden, Ore Oduba and Jay McGuiness claiming gold over the last three years.

Maybe this year will break that trend…

How Many Episodes Are There Per Season?

Strictly lasts for 13 weeks – with each week eliminating a couple and a celebrity contestant. That means there are 13 episodes a season.

That’s 13 weeks of glorious sequins and dodgy dancing to sink your teeth into.

How to Watch Strictly Come Dancing Online

Unfortunately, there is nowhere to watch any past seasons of Strictly online. BBC iPlayer no longer have the last series on their service, nor any season prior. They’ve cleared it all out to make way for this season.

But there are a couple of goodies on iPlayer to make up for it – there’s Meet the Celebrities, an episode telling you all about the new season’s contestants. There’s also a bunch of behind the scenes clips, too.
