The musical guest this week will be Gregory Porter.
What are the celebrities dancing to in week four?
We’re pretty excited to see Susan Calman Quickstep to Bring Me Sunshine by The Jive Aces, and we reckon Jonnie Peacock will deliver an amazing American Smooth to Cry Me a River. But will Ruth Langsford be able to pull off a Tango to the song Allegretto by Bond?
The two couples who find themselves at the bottom when both the judges’ scores and viewers’ votes are combined will face the dance-off on Sunday night. Whoever the judges deem the weaker of the two performances will be sent home, with new Head Judge Shirley Ballas having the casting vote if the decision is tied.
Why don’t all the Strictly professionals have partners?
You have to spare a thought for poor Neil Jones and Chloe Hewitt. For the second year in a row, both of these Strictly pros have been left on the subs bench. Neither of them have a celebrity partner this year, although they will both be contributing lots to It Takes Two on BBC2, and starring in and choreographing the group dance routines on the show.
“It’s OK,” he told RadioTimes.com about sitting out this series. “There’s 15 celebrities, so we always knew there was going to be an imbalance. That was my role last year. There’s been no changes with the men, so even coming into it – we didn’t know until the last minute – but I already had that in my mind.
“I would love to be in the same situation as everyone else purely because of the experience, and when I speak to them each day – ‘We’re going through this and this is happening’ – you’d love to be there. But at the same time I love being part of the show and I’m busy with It Takes Two! I’m sure they’re going to get me learning some new dances this year.”
Who’s presenting Strictly Come Dancing?
As ever, it’s Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman who host Strictly Come Dancing.
