Braless Daisy Lowe sizzles in sheer red gown as she joins dazzling hopefuls Laura Whitmore and Louise Redknapp at red carpet launch of Strictly Come Dancing 2016

Fans of the twinkle toes and glitzy costumes are set to be in a frenzy. 

Strictly Come Dancing is back with a sparkle, as on Tuesday evening the celebrities and professionals stormed the red carpet at the Elstree Film Studios ahead of the forthcoming launch of the 2016 series, with the amateur superstars pulling out all the stops in their sexy ensembles. 

Leading the racy arrivals was Daisy Lowe who got extremely steamy as she went braless, in what could arguably be the sexiest look to date where she showed off the entirety of her chest, while she joined Laura Whitmore donning a thigh-skimming skirt and Louise Redknapp in bringing the glam.

Here come the girls! Strictly Come Dancing is back with a sparkle, as on Tuesday evening the celebrities and professionals stormed the red carpet at the Elstree Film Studios ahead of the forthcoming launch of the 2016 series

While the girls were bringing the glamour, the entire cast were certainly injecting some sparkle into the evening themselves as the group stood together to pose for a cast image - giving a glimpse of what audiences will see for the weekends leading up to the festive period from the show which kicks of on Saturday, September 3.

This year's contestants comprise of Greg Rutherford, Daisy Lowe, Judge Rinder, Laura Whitmore, Ore Oduba, Louise Redknapp, Will Young, Naga Munchetty, Tameka Empson, Danny Mac, Anastacia, Ed Balls, Claudia Fragapane, Melvin Odoom and Leslie Joseph. 

Returning once again was the panel of judges complete with Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Len Goodman, who is departing as head judge following this season after sitting in the role since the show's 2004 inauguration.

Also returning to add further glamour to television's glitziest show was hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly, who ensured they were as dolled up as the stars while both sporting floor-sweeping gowns to help maximise their incredible figures.

Eye-popping!%20Daisys%20ensemble%20was%20far%20from%20any%20look%20worn%20by%20Strictly%20contestants%20before%20-%20proving%20the%20superstar%20offspring%20and%20model%20will%20undoubtedly%20be%20the%20sexiest%20addition%20to%20the%20cast

Eye-popping! Daisy's ensemble was far from any look worn by Strictly contestants before - proving the superstar offspring and model will undoubtedly be the sexiest addition to the cast

Judgmental! Returning once again was the panel of judges complete with Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Len Goodman (left-right), who is departing his role as head judge following this season

Superstar offspring and model Daisy, who is the daughter of famed fashionista Pearl Lowe and Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale, was undoubtedly the raciest in a fishnet ensemble which showed off the entirety of her unsupported ample cleavage while also exhibiting her long legs.

A panel extending along the centre of the skirt ensured the essential Strictly sparkle was injected although her perky cleavage was undoubtedly the central point of focus, in what could easily be the most shocking look to hit the BBC dance floor. 

The beaded strips extending the length of her bust were the only element of the ensemble protecting her modesty, due to the sheer material. The gown's bold red colouring perfectly stood out against her raven tresses and alabaster complexion, while her glimmering lipstick matched her dress. 

Despite her outfit being, arguably, the sexiest look to date, she ensured things were kept classic with her footwear thanks to her gold heels and nude fishnet stockings - the hallmark of many dance ensembles.

Lucky guy: Not content with posing with one stunning girl, Ed was also lucky enough to pose with the show's bustiest contestant, Miss Lowe - who seemed tickled by his jokes

How short can you go? While her gown was thigh-skimming in length, it was wholly more demure than sexy Daisy's - although still showstopping in its dazzling effect thanks to heavy beading and a flame style colour scheme

Laura Whitmore arrived on the arm of former economic secretary Ed Balls, who looked dapper in a suit, while the Irish model wore a swishing yellow mini. 

While her gown was thigh-skimming in length, it was wholly more demure than sexy Daisy's - although still showstopping in its dazzling effect thanks to heavy beading and a flame style colour scheme. 

Although her dress featured a high-neck, the blonde beauty turned to reveal a mass of flesh, with a dip which extended down the entirety of her back. 

Louise, of Nineties girl group Eternal fame, borrowed from the 1920s in her stunning beaded gown which featured intricate beadwork to afford the gown stunning and graceful movement.

Flying solo: Newly-single Giovanni Pernice looked upbeat despite announcing his split from Georgia May Foote - who he met while partnered with her on last year's show 

Yet another of the female landings was pop powerhouse Anastacia, who pulled a host of wacky faces as she posed in her tight navy gown with green detail.  

Wowing the red carpet was the show's host, Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly who will undoubtedly be wowing Saturday night screens with their bevvy on weekly dazzling ensembles.

For the launch Claudia, 44, sported a floor-sweeping red ensemble with a chic double fold - while the pillar shape gave her a stunning shape. 

Going for an entirely simplistic look, the brunette beauty wore no accessories save for a dazzling ring, while she gave a glimpse at her pointed heels from beneath the gown.

Look slinky in an asymmetric dress like Tess Daly

Season 14 of Strictly Come Dancing is finally here. We're super excited despite the fact the start of Strictly and X-Factor remind us winter is coming!

But this year's hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman certainly weren't thinking about that just yet, showing off their shoulders in their fabulous ensembles.

While Claudia chose a red strapless pick that suited her bronzed skin perfectly, Tess opted for a dress in a classic navy hue. Navy can be just as flattering as black without the boring stigma attached and Tess' dress certainly cannot be described as that.

The gown by Halston Heritage features a singular sleeve with a cut out, leaving Tess' right arm bare, not to mention the thigh high slit flashing more flesh. This dress is a little bit minxy!

The good news is it's now in the sale, so why not shop it at TheOutnet.com (click right)?

Or go asymmetric in one of the belted options in the line up below from the likes of Asos, Maiocci Collection and Zibi London. Or get the sleeveless version of Tess' dress at Saks.

Look at hem go! Going for an entirely simplistic look, the brunette beauty wore no accessories save for a dazzling ring, while she gave a glimpse at her pointed heels from beneath the gown

She styled her classic heavy fringed hairdo into a shaggy mane which tickled her heavily made up eyes in length. 

Tess meanwhile opted for a chic navy gown with a cold shoulder detail and a daring split while her blonde locks were dead straight in style. 

Tess' belt was a plate detail matched her hooped earrings in the metallic style while she opted for glimmering shoes to match

Judge Darcey Bussell, a world famous ballerina, showed off her dancer's technique as she swished her gown while storming down the red carpet - showing her peers just how it is done. 

As she turned around she exposed the backless detail on the gown with intricate beading draping down to give a delicate touch. 

Her sleek tresses were worn in a dead-straight style cascading over her shoulders while falling from a side parting.

ooh now i'm open minded, but hated Daisy's red dress, looked like it should be under a red light!, ha..ha..probably get a few quid
Anton's just dyed his hair an orangey brown too it seems. He even looks older than Ed Balls, which he probably is.
Loved Laura Whitmore's yellow number, Louise Rednapps seemed a bit dowdy/granni-fied, altho i think even grannies wouldn't wear that lamp shade effect number, what was someone thinking???, obviously the one this year that wardrobe have it in for this year.....
Ed Balls was supposedly dad dancing (or dancing like Ricky Gervaise according the newspapers)
Loved Naga's dress too, now that was a classy red with Style!!
(looked like a 5 year old had designed Daisy's!)
I think I'm going to like watching Naga this year.
I hope Natalie goes further than usual, or at least gets a younger partner than usual.

Just thought why does DArcy always get the best dress (I did like it) and Tess always get a Toga type, this time a full one armed number. She always looks like the kid with the cheap budget compared to Darcy. Maybe (Claudie too) they don't want to overdress the hosts (two males would be much cheaper to dress in black tie every week)
I think Lesley Joseph will be fun, but rubbish.

Didn't recognise Joanne! Some of the dresses are awful - they must design them before they see the ladies?! Anton looks like a right plonker - had to scroll past those pics quickly!!
