In behind the scenes gossip, Mollie has been quizzed on her supposed 'romance' with pro partner AJ Pritchard - are the pair dating?!

Meanwhile, Brendan Cole has spoken out on claims of a 'bitter feud' with head judge Shirley Ballas following their on air clash last month.

And Brendan v Shirley may not be the only backstage battle, with reports that favourites Alexandra and Debbie are also involved in some sort of behind the scenes tiff ahead of Blackpool weekend.

In more drama for Debbie, she's been left injured ahead of her performance this Saturday night with a pal saying the current tip to win is in "agonising pain".

Elsewhere, ahead of the performances this weekend, Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood has delivered some harsh home truths. He's told Mollie she needs to stop being "awkward" and issued a warning to Alexandra.

Ahead of the live performances, Debbie remains the favourite to win but Jonne is the bookies' tip to go in the Blackpool results.

But with Aston's exit still in our memories - and his girlfirend's - we know anything could happen...

The remaining seven couples on Strictly Come Dancing will take to the dancefloor this weekend when Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 18th November at 6:45pm.

The results show is on Sunday 19th November at 7.15pm on BBC One.
