The BBC, BBC One, and EUROVISION TV are proud to present a new live entertainment coproduction: the Eurovision Dance Contest! The Dance Contest is an international competition for qualified ballroom dancers, in a showcase of European excellence.

London, home to almost 8 million people, is one of the world's most classy and vibrant capitals. So, what could possibly have been a better location for the first edition of the Eurovision Dance Contest then the UK capital? On Tuesday, 28th of August, delegations from 16 countries ond organizers will gather at the London City Hall for the official Welcome Party. After rehearsals on Wednesday and Thursday and dress rehearsals on Friday night and Saturday morning, Europe will tune in for the biggest live televised European dance competition on Saturday evening, 1st of September, 21:00 CET.

The show will be transmitted live from the BBC's Television Centre and will be hosted by Graham NORTON, one of the best known presenters on British television who joined the BBC in 204, bringing with him his own unique blend of humour, and Claudia WINKLEMAN, host of Strictly Comes Dancing's sister show It Takes Two on BBC tw

The show has indeed caused some controversey, not withstanding that there has been an 'official' European Championships run under official BCBD rules for the last 80 years.  This programme has not taken into consideration rankings or currently competing couples and does not include any of the top current European champions.

Indeed the Beeb Inivited Brendan Cole to represent Britain and he got back with Camilla to do so - a bit of a farce but worth a watch

I found the show very very boring and stopped watching after Camilla and Brendan did their second dance. Very disappointed as I had been looking forward to it.
On the Internet I am anyone,
I am anything I want to be.
I could be a super model or Norman Mailer
And you wouldn't know the difference Or would you?
