After four successful seasons that saw participants and their relatives celebrate, shed tears or sulk in corners, Strictly Come Dancing is coming back.

Set to enter its fifth season, the reality show has captured the imagination of the nation.

It brings together celebrities and professional dancers to induce the love for dancing among television viewers.

Most of the former celebrity participants have carried on dancing, albeit not professionally.

It's the element of keeping healthy, enjoying a new hobby and making friends that has kept them attentive. It's also the spin-offs, after being seen on television.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on SABC2 from October 2 at 7:30pm.

One week before, on Thursday, September 25 at 7:30pm, preceding the new series, a special Strictly Come Dancing episode will chronicle the history of the reality series.
