Strictly Come Dancing 2017: Go backstage at Movies week!

Here's a look backstage on Strictly Come Dancing 2017's Movie themed weekend of live shows.

From the time spent getting Strictly-fied in make up and wardrobe to those last minute nerves, cameras captured everything.


In this behind the scenes video, we see the celebrities arriving at the Strictly ballroom before heading into rehearsals for what was their third live performance.

And the dreaded next elimination of the series.

At the weekend Strictly Come Dancing went to the movies, and the celebrity dancers and their professional partners gave their best Hollywood-inspired performances.

The fourteen couples each took to the dancefloor to impress the viewers at home - as well as judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood in the studio.

Aston Merygold topped the leaderboard but in Sunday's results show, Simon Rimmer and Reverend Richard Coles had to dance again and it was the Reverend who went home.

Speaking about his exit last night, Richard Coles said: “It’s been a joy. Every minute of it I’ve enjoyed, even when Dianne was hissing through her teeth “feet, frame, feet, frame”, it’s been completely joyous.

"I only forgot to reckon into my strategy that I can’t actually dance!”

When asked by co-host Tess Daly what his highlight had been, Richard said: “So many highlights, I think really it’s coming together as a group of people, fellow celebs and pro dancers.

"It has just been a really really wonderful experience.

"And also it’s really important that none of this would have happened if it wasn’t for the fantastic crew, wardrobe, hair and make-up, production, the fantastic band and the judges too.”

The remaining thirteen couples will take to the dancefloor again next week when Strictly Come Dancing returns on BBC One at 6:45PM.
