Strictly Come Dancing 2018 is back live tonight and here's all you need to know!

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are back in the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom this weekend, as the quest to lift the Glitterball Trophy continues.


The 12 remaining couples will each take to the floor in a bid to impress the judging panel: Shirley Ballas, Dame Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood, and, for one week only, guest judge Alfonso Ribeiro.

As the competition reaches its fifth week, the judges will be looking for the couples to really show what they are capable of. After the judges have given their scores, the public will have the chance to cast their votes. The two couples with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes will face the dreaded dance-off on Sunday’s Results show.

Those left on the Strictly 2018 line up this year are Capital Radio DJ and TV presenter Vick Hope, Steps star Faye Tozer, YouTube star Joe Sugg, England cricketer Graeme Swann, Red Dwarf actor Danny John-Jules and TV Doctor on This Morning Dr. Ranj Singh.

Joining them are BBC Three documentary maker Stacey Dooley, Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts, BBC News journalist Kate Silverton and comedian Seann Walsh.

Rounding off the current cast are Paratriathlete Lauren Steadman and Casualty actor Charles Venn.
