Christmas Special 2016

here's a spoiler filled preview of tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Christmas special.

Once again, following the end of the main series earlier this month, the Strictly judges will return for one last appearance this year on Christmas Day.

And this year's show is rather extra special as it'll be Len Goodman's final time as a Strictly judge.

He'll be joined as always by Bruno Tonioli, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood on the panel as they cast their critical eyes over the routines.

But it'll be the studio audience who decides the winner in the annual special show.

This year the theme is Christmas movies and there will be a line up of six former Strictly celebrity contestants returning to the dance floor.

"The night promises to be a spectacular celebration of the movies that families love to watch at Christmas," say the BBC.

Some of the stars making comebacks haven't been on Strictly for years but for one, it's only been weeks..
