PICTURES! Strictly Come Dancing 2013 celebrities gear up for Blackpool

Here's a look at how the Strictly Come Dancing 2013 stars are doing in training ahead of the weekend's Blackpool special.

Saturday evening's upcoming live show will be broadcast live from the city's iconic Tower ballroom, as the remaining celebrity contestants dance on more in a bid to impress both the judges and us viewers.

Amongst the dances set for this weekend are Ashley and Ola's Paso Doble to Bon Jovi’s You Give Love a Bad Name and Ben and Kristina dance the American Smooth to Fallin’ by Alicia Keys.

After topping the judges' scoreboad last week with 37 points, Patrick and Anya will Samba to Barry Manilow’s Copacabana as they try and get more tens from the panel.

However, Natalie and Artem had a nasty week after Nat missed the live show following fainting during rehearsals. This week fortunately she's fighting fit, performing the Charleston to Will.i.am’s Bang Bang.

Elsewhere and Mark and Iveta will be wanting to bounce back from the bottom two with their Jive to You Can’t Stop the Beat from Hairspray, while Sophie and Brendan will no doubt want to improve on their recent run of poor scores with a Quickstep to Shirley Bassey’s The Lady is a Tramp.

Other dances set for Saturday include Fiona and Anton performing the American Smooth to Frank Sinatra’s Come Fly With Me and Susanna and Kevin will perform the Paso Doble to Carmen’s Los Toreadors.
