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

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 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.

Once judges Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke 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 Adam Peaty and Katya Jones lose their place in the dance off – who will be the next to get sent packing?
