The competing couples will then take centre stage when Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday, 2 December at 7:25 PM, followed by the results show on Sunday, 3 December at 7:20 PM on BBC One.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will return as hosts, welcoming the celebrities and the five remaining couples, who are all eager to secure their positions for the upcoming final.

The judging panel, featuring Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, and Anton Du Beke, will be on hand to evaluate each dance. At the same time, the audience at home gets to participate by voting for their favorite performances.

Following Angela Scanlon’s departure last weekend, the stakes are higher as another celebrity will be leaving the show after this weekend’s performances.
