The Strictly Come Dancing 2013 final is fast approaching but when does it start, who’s dancing what, how will it work and just who will win? We try to answer all those questions and more in our final round up…

What time is the Strictly Come Dancing 2013 final?
There are two shows this week and both on Saturday night. The first Strictly Come Dancing final show starts at 6:30PM, airing until 7:55PM.

The second show will air at 8:40PM until the winner is announced just before 9:50PM. There will be no Sunday results show.

Who's in the Strictly 2013 final?
Four celebs remain and it's Strictly's first ever all female final. Popstar Sophie Ellis Bextor, model Abbey Clancy, BBC newsreader Susanna Reid and Corrie actress Natalie Gumede will be competing. Of the four, only Sophie and Susanna have never been in the dance-off.

How will the Strictly Come Dancing final work?
Lines will open to vote for a winner at the top of the show, before the final four each perform twice. They'll first reprise one performance from the past live shows as chosen by the judges, before going on to put on their showdance. There are no rules with the show dance, with the celebs and their pro partners choosing the music, style and moves as they see fit.

Lines will then freeze and one celebrity will be eliminated in fourth place at the end of the first show, before lines re-open.

In the second show, the final three will reprise their favourite (usually highest scoring) routine from the series before lines close for good and the winner is announced.

Where will it be filmed?
This year the live show will be coming from Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, so no big arena show on Saturday night!

Who will win?
No one knows for certain, but Susanna Reid is the current big favourite with the bookies.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Susanna's sizzling performances have made the headlines and punters are backing her in their droves to be crowned victorious. Natalie was the red-hot favourite for so long but we cannot give her away at the moment."

She added: "If there's going to be an upset the money suggests Abbey can take the title back home to Liverpool."
