The Script will perform on Strictly Come Dancing 2017 this weekend, it's been revealed.

This Saturday night, Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman return to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom this weekend as the battle to lift the Glitterball Trophy continues.

The 12 remaining couples will each take to the floor in a bid to impress the awesome foursome on the judging panel - Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood - as well as the viewers at home.

As the competition reaches its fifth week, the judges will be looking for the couples to really show what they are capable of. After the judges have given their scores, the public will have the chance to cast their votes.

The two couples with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes will face the dreaded dance-off on Sunday’s Results show.

There, Tess and Claudia present the results of the public vote and the judges scores. The votes have been counted and the two couples at the bottom of the leader board must perform in the dreaded dance off to save their place in the competition.

There will also be a sensational group number from our professional dancers and a musical performance from The Script.

The band tweeted: "We’re excited to announce that we’ll be performing at @bbcstrictly this Sunday! Who’s tuning in?👊"

Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday, October 21 at 6:35PM and Sunday, October 22 at 7:15PM.
