We can't wait for Strictly to return to our screens and bring a whole lot of glitter and glamour back into our Saturday nights. But in the meantime, you can still enjoy a bit of Strictly pizzazz, thanks to a special exhibition at Bedfordshire's Woburn Abbey.
Strictly Dresses: Woburn Abbey is the largest and most comprehensive public display of the most fabulous frocks worn by the celebs and professional dancers alike from the Strictly school of 2014. All designed by the show's current dress supplier since 2009, Dancesport International, every dress is handmade in the South London studio by a dedicated team of craftsmen and women.
In the regal rooms of Woburn Abbey, which has been the family home of the Earls and Dukes of Bedford for nearly 400 years, you can explore a snazzy line-up of dramatic dresses including the Charleston outfit worn by 2014 winner and Glitterball trophy holder Caroline Flack, the first celebrity to ever score perfect 10s by the judges for her final three dances.
Other celebrity outfits worn by Pixie Lott, Frankie Bridge, Judy Murray and Sunetra Sarker add further sparkle while the dresses of Strictly professionals Ola Jordan, Natalie Lowe, Kristina Rihanoff, Karen Hauer, Joanne Clifton and Janette Manara dazzle. And what's more, visitors are invited to see up close the intricacies and detailed designs of these real works of art.
But don't just take our word for it. Here's a sneak peak of some of the gems you'll find in this sartorial hall of fame:
