Tonight’s Strictly Come Dancing 2019 line up, start time, dances and songs revealed

Strictly spoiler! Tonight's dances, songs and contestants for this weekend

Strictly Come Dancing 2019 is back live on TV tonight and here’s all you need to know!


Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present Strictly Come Dancing as the battle in the ballroom intensifies.

The eight remaining couples will take to the floor as they try once again to impress the judges in the studio and the viewers at home.

This week the stakes are even higher, as the couples are not only dancing to stay in the competition but also for the chance to dance on one of the world’s most iconic dancefloors next weekend, when Strictly heads to Blackpool.

Once judges Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, have given their scores, the public will have the chance to cast their votes. The two couples with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewers’ votes will have to face the dreaded dance-off on Sunday’s Results show.

Last weekend saw Viscountess Emma Weymouth and Aljaž Škorjanec lose their place in the dance off – who will be the next to get sent packing?
