The 2020 edition of Strictly Come Dancing (informally known as Strictly) was the 18th series of the British television dance contest in which celebrities will once again partner with professional dancers.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the series will be slightly shorter than planned.

Each couple will once again be scored by a panel of judges, although Bruno Tonioli will not appear in person due to his US commitments.
