Strictly 2018 voting for free

It's the ninth live show of Strictly Come Dancing 2018 tonight - here's how to vote online for FREE to keep your favourite dancing.

As always, the online vote opens the exact same time as the phone vote as announced in each week's show after all remaining five couples have danced.

Lines close the same time as the phone vote which is generally around an hour after the live show finished. The exact time lines close will be announced on the night by hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

On Sunday night, the third celebrity couple will be booted out.

How to vote on Strictly Come Dancing for free online

In order to vote you'll need to register for a BBC ID if you don't have one already - Register for FREE HERE.

You can then vote when the lines open by going straight to the Strictly Come Dancing BBC homepage and clicking on your favourite.

Note that you can vote up to THREE TIMES each week up until the final (Where you can only vote the once!). You can vote either for the same person or for split your votes between multiple celebs.

However the votes don't carry over to next Saturday night so use them or use them this evening.

The online votes will be added to the phone votes to give the overall public rankings.

The total viewer votes will in turn be combined with the judges' scores from tonight's latest live show. Altogether, these will decide which two celebs will have to perform again for the judges in Sunday's results show tomorrow.

As always, the panel will then pick which celeb stays leaving one to leave the competition this year.

This weekend it's the eighth elimination of the series as we say goodbye to the next of the remaining 8 celebrity contestants.

Those left on the Strictly 2018 line up this year are author, Steps star Faye Tozer, YouTube star Joe Sugg and England cricketer Graeme Swann.

Joining them are BBC Three documentary maker Stacey Dooley, Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts and BBC News journalist Kate Silverton.

Rounding off the current cast are Paratriathlete Lauren Steadman, television presenter and Casualty actor Charles Venn.

Strictly Come Dancing 2018 airs tonight, November 17 at 6:45PM on BBC with the performances. Catch the result show from 7:20PM on Sunday night, November 18.
