Next Episode of Strictly Come Dancing is
Season 16 / Episode 3 and airs on 29 September 2018 17:30
Are today's celebrities fleet of foot or do they have two left feet? That's the question Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will be finding the answer to when they present Strictly Come Dancing.
The wait is finally over, and after 13 amazing weeks of glitter, excitement and sensational dance performances, the most glamorous night of TV has arrived and the Strictly Come Dancing Final comes live to BBC One.
Fifteen celebrities entered the ballroom, but now only the finalists remain. Each couple will perform in front of the judges and to the audience at home to battle it out in the ballroom for the very last time. The judges scores will be for guidance only and the winner will be decided by the viewers' votes alone.
Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will then reveal which celebrity and professional dancer the viewers have chosen to lift the famous Glitter Ball Trophy and be crowned the champions of Strictly Come Dancing 2017.
Dust off your dancing shoes, Strictly Come Dancing is waltzing back onto BBC One for its 16th series.
Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are rolling out the red carpet to welcome the star-studded celebrity class of 2018 as they begin their Strictly adventure in Strictly Come Dancing: The Launch.
Tonight the 15 celebrity contestants will make their grand entrance into the famous Strictly ballroom and discover which professional dancer they will be paired with. Once the pairings have been announced the celebrities and professionals will take to the dancefloor for the very first time for a spectacular group performance.
Get ready to start dancing! Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present the first live episode of this year's spectacular series. The celebrities have had two weeks to rehearse their first routine and tonight the 15 couples perform live. They're dancing to impress the viewers and our fabulous four judges, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and head judge Shirley Ballas. The judges will score each couple but no-one leaves this week. Instead their scores will be carried over to next week when the viewers get the chance to vote for their favourite couple. It will be a show packed with entertainment and drama with plenty of first-night nerves - the quest for glitterball glory has begun!
It's the second live show and tonight viewers get their first chance to vote for their favourite couple. All 15 couples have had just a week to learn and perfect their second dance. The stakes are raised as each couple needs to impress the judges, and their scores from week one will be added to tonight's scores to give us our first leader board. Who will impress the judges and who will impress the viewers at home? No-one wants to be the first couple to leave Strictly 2018.
The first results show of the series opens with a spectacular tango-inspired group performance from the pros. Then it's time to find out which couples have made it through and which two will be in the dreaded dance-off. This is their last chance to impress the judges and no-one wants to be the first to be eliminated, but the judges can only save one of them. Plus a music performance from the amazing George Ezra.
