Hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, the show wouldn’t be complete without the festive foursome on the judging panel: Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and Head Judge Shirley Ballas.

The judges will be on hand to score each couple and spread some cheerful joy, but it will be down to the studio audience to vote for which dancing duo who will be crowned the winners.
