The Strictly Come Dancing 2017 celebrities had quite the time Blackpool at the weekend.

After last year's drama, where pro dancer Gorka Marquez ended up being assaulted after a night out, the celebs and pros this year remained at their hotel.

But it didn't stop them enjoying themselves, boozing all night and not stopping until the next morning.

As well as celebrating making it through another vote, it was Gemma Atkinson and Janette Manrara's birthdays.

"There was a huge buzz and loads of excitement at the ­after-party," an insider spilled. “All the judges were there and Graham Norton hung about for a bit after watching the show.

"The cast were celebrating Gemma’s and Janette Manrara’s birthdays, so it was definitely a late one.”

According to The Sun newspaper, some of the show's stars were still going strong at 6:30AM the next morning.

However it seems as though they paid for it when it came to checking out of the hotel.

"I’ve had a bit of a late night, please don’t take any pictures. I look a mess!" host Claudia Winkleman told the tabloid.

Head judge Shirley Ballas added to the newspaper: “I was one of the well behaved ones. I was in bed by half one.”

After the Blackpool special, seven couples are left competing for the Glitterball Trophy.

Those left in the competition right now are Mollie King & AJ Pritchard, Susan Calman & Kevin Clifton and Alexandra Burke & Gorka Marquez.
