First Steps: Mollie, Ruth, Aston, Alexandra And Jonnie

The 'first steps' videos are coming in thick and fast.

Mollie & AJ will start their Strictly journey with a jive to Good Golly Miss Molly by Little Richard.

Molly looks as though she's having to concentrate more that you might expect. She'll get there, I'm sure, but it's not coming as easily as one might imagine.

Ruth & Anton will be dancing a waltx to This Nearly Was Mine by Seth MacFarlane (yes, the Family Guy bloke).

You don't actually get to see a lot of dancing in this clip, but given that Ruth is finding changing feet difficult makes you wonder. At least she has what is generally considers the easiest ballroom dance, and will be firmly in the arms of the 'King of Ballroom', how badly can it go?

Aston & Janette will be dancing a foxtrot to It Had To Be You by Harry Connick, Jr.

The foxtrot is one of the more difficult dances technically, and Shirley will have her eyes on that footwork. Aston seems to be listening to Janette, so I think he'll be fine. If he can start well with the foxtrot, it can only get easier.

Alexandra & Gorka will be performing the waltz, to (You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin. They are the fourth couple to have performed to this track in the show's history.

Her training footage looks pretty good for day one. I think she's going to nail it.

Finally, Jonnie & Oti will be also performing the waltz to When I Need You by Luther Vandross, another track on its fourth outing. Classic waltz track.

Jonnie looks great! Good frame, nice footwork. For a novice, he's looking like one to watch.
