Who is hosting The Greatest Dancer?
Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon and Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo are hosts of The Greatest Dancer.
Both have a long list of dance credits between them.
Jordan won Britain's Got Talent with his dance troupe in 2009.
Alesha, meanwhile, won Strictly in 2007.
How does The Greatest Dancer work?
The programme aims to discover the best dancers from all sorts of backgrounds including Bollywood, ballet, jazz, jive, tap and tango.
Weeks one through four featured highlights from the auditions.
These took place in front of a live audience.
The hopefuls performed their routines in a dance studio in front of a mirror – which was actually a wall that separated the auditionee from the audience.
If 75 per cent of the audience decided to vote in favour of the performance, the mirror wall opened and they were through to the next round.
The Greatest Dancer's live shows started in episode five (February 2).
Each dance captain picked three acts to work with, and every week the dancers are set a challenge to create a performance with the help of their dance captain.
The winners of The Greatest Dancer will win £50,000 and the opportunity to perform as a guest dancer on Strictly Come Dancing.
