Strictly Come Dancing 2013: semi-final song and dance list revealed

The remaining celebrities are upping their game in week 12, performing TWO dances each

Those Strictly judges are working this year’s celebrities hard, aren’t they? Barely had they got their breath back from last week’s Swing-a-thon when they had to start learning, not one, but, two dances! 


We suppose it’s fair enough. Now we are down to the final five contestants it’s all to play for. One wrong step and the final, with its coveted Strictly glitterball, is out of reach… 

To try and impress the judges, and us while we watch from our sofas, Sophie Ellis Bextor will be performing a Paso Doble and an American Smooth. Susanna will be trying to climb up the leader board with a Salsa and Foxtrot. Patrick will be dancing a Paso and a Waltz, while Natalie is set to take on the Argentine Tango and a Salsa. Plus Abbey will be trying to achieve the perfect score again with a Samba and American Smooth.
