Strictly spoiler! Tonight's dances, songs and contestants

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


Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are back in the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom this weekend, as the quest to lift the Glitterball Trophy continues.

The 12 remaining couples will each take to the floor in a bid to impress the judging panel: Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood, and, for one week only, guest judge Alfonso Ribeiro.

As the competition reaches its fifth week, the judges will be looking for the couples to really show what they are capable of. After the judges have given their scores, the public will have the chance to cast their votes.

The two couples with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes will face the dreaded dance-off on Sunday’s Results show.

The 12 celebrities left on the Strictly 2019 line up this year are BBC Sports presenter Mike Bushell, Corrie actress Catherine Tyldesley, Viscountess Emma Weymouth, RuPaul Drag Race judge Michelle Visage, Paralympic champion Will Bayley, and footballer and presenter Alex Scott.

Joining them are England international goalkeeper David James, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual, comedian Chris Ramsey and EastEnders’ actress Emma Barton.


Completing the current cast are social media star Saffron Barker and Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher – who replaced injured Jamie Laing
