Strictly spoiler! Tonight's dances, songs and contestants

It’s Strictly Come Dancing’s 2019 second live show tonight and here is all you need to know – SPOILERS!


The drama ramps up this week as the 15 celebrities perform live in a bid to keep their place in the competition.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman host the second live show, as the couples aim to dazzle the fabulous four judges – Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and head judge Shirley Ballas.

The judges’ scores from this week will be added to their scores from last week’s spectacular show. The vote lines will then open and viewers at home can have their say on their favourite couples. Sadly, someone will be leaving the competition in Sunday night’s results show and no-one wants to be the first to go.

The fifteen celebs currently in the competition 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, Olympic row James Cracknell, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual, comedian Chris Ramsey and EastEnders’ actress Emma Barton.

Completing the current cast are Radio DJ Dev Griffin, TV legend Anneka Rice, social media star Saffron Barker and Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher – who replaces injured Jamie Laing.
