The Strictly Come Dancing 2018 final is this weekend and here's all you need to know!

This evening, Strictly Come Dancing returns with just one live show as the four finalists compete for the Glitter Ball trophy.


What time does the Strictly Come Dancing final start?

The Strictly final is this Saturday night and is in just the one part this year with the performances and results together.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2018 final starts tonight at 6.30PM on BBC One and concludes at 9PM.

The live results will air in the SAME SHOW (not on Sundays as usual) so don't tune out!

Who are the Strictly finalists?

Four celebrity couples have made it to this final stage.

The Strictly Come Dancing finalists 2018 are Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts & Pasha Kovalev, Steps' singer Faye Tozer & Giovanni Pernice, vlogger Joe Sugg & Dianne Buswell and Stacey Dooley & Kevin Clifton.

How does the Strictly Come Dancing final work?

The four finalists will each be performing three dances.


There is the show dance as well as the celebrities' favourite dance from the series.

They will also perform a routine from the series as chosen by the judges, who have given them feedback on what to do better this time.

The Judges will score all the routines but the marks throughout the night are for guidance only and the public vote alone will decide who wins.

What are the dances?

The showdance songs and the judges' choices have all been revealed and you can see them HERE, but the routines that the couples have picked as their favourites are being kept secret for now.

How can I vote?

You can vote for your favourite by phone or mobile, with the numbers and details given out on screen during the live show.

Alternatively, you can vote for FREE online. To vote for free, you need to have signed up for a BBC Id if you've not already done so.

Then simply visit the BBC Strictly website when the live show is on to cast your vote.

Who will win Strictly 2018?

Stacey Dooley will win Strictly Come Dancing this weekend according to the latest odds from Ladbrokes.

Ahead of the 2018 showdown it's the TV presenter who heads the betting as the overwhelming favourite with odds of just 8/15, with Joe her closest rival in the betting as a 9/4 shot.


Faye finds herself chalked up at 10/1, which leaves Ashley as the rank outsider at a whopping 33/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "It would be a huge surprise to see anyone other than Stacey win this weekend. She's been on the biggest Strictly journey and, despite being an incredible dancer, it means someone like Ashley is really going to struggle to topple her."
