Spoilers have apparently surfaced online well ahead of its scheduled broadcast on Christmas Day.

It’s claimed that the festive episode, which was pre-recorded earlier in December with a live audience, has had its results leaked on social media, though it’s uncertain if these rumours are accurate.

This eagerly awaited Christmas special is set to air on 25 December at 4:40PM on BBC One.

The show features six celebrity contestants taking on the Strictly challenge for the first time.

They will be judged by Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke, and Shirley Ballas, with the studio audience also casting votes.

As well as the performances from the celebs, Sam Ryder takes to the stage in the ballroom, accompanied by two stunning group performances from the professionals that promise to spread festive joy.
