The Strictly Come Dancing 2016 final is this weekend and here's all you need to know!

This Saturday, Strictly Come Dancing returns with just one live show as the three 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, no doubt because Will Young's exit left us with just three rather than usual four finalists.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2016 final starts tonight at 6.40PM on BBC One.

The three 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 contestants' favourite choices have all been revealed and you can see them HERE, but the routines that the judges have picked 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 2016?

Danny Mac is the clear favourite with Ladbrokes to win Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.

As the celebrities take to the dance floor for the final time this year, it's Danny who punters are clamouring over, which has seen his odds of being crowned as the 2016 champion slashed into 8/11.

Second favourite, Louise, remains the most likely candidate to cause an upset at 13/8, which leaves Ore as the 7/1 outsider of the trio.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Money talks, and as far as punters are concerned Danny will waltz his way to glitterball glory this weekend."
