Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas Special 2017 spoiler start time and contestants

Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special 2017

Here's a spoiler filled preview of tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2017 Christmas special.

Once again, following the end of the main series earlier this month, the Strictly judges will return for one last appearance this year today on Christmas Day.

And this year's show is rather extra special as it'll be Shirley Ballas' first time as a Strictly judge at Christmas.

She'll be joined by Strictly veterans Bruno Tonioli, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood on the panel as they cast their critical eyes over the routines.

But it'll be the studio audience who decides the winner in the annual special show this evening on BBC One.
