Plus of course, the awesome foursome judging panel of Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood.

The main show will kick off with a grand group performance fit to fill the massive Tower ballroom, and the stakes are high as the celebrities and their professional partners are feeling the pressure with the Grand Final approaching.

Once again it's a new dance for all of them as they continue in the race for the Glitterball trophy.

But who will get full marks from the judges and who will be heading home?

Dances this week include a pair of Pasos from Susan and Kevin and Davood and Nadiya, dancing to Scott & Fran’s Paso Doble from ‘Strictly Ballroom’ and Live And Let Die by Paul McCartney and Wings respectively.
