Strictly’s second live show will air on Saturday 30th September on BBC1 at 6.45pm.
Is there a Strictly results show on Sunday?
Yes! It’s the very first results show of 2017 this weekend, and it starts at 7.15pm onSunday October 1. During the first week, no-one was eliminated, but the first celebrity of series 15 will be leaving the competition this Sunday during the results show. Also, Emeli Sandé will be performing on the show.
Susan Calman, meanwhile, is truly suffering for her art. Although the Charleston is a fun, upbeat, happy dance, she’s been left with a lot of bruising after her training with Kevin Clifton. Talk about dedication!
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.
When are Strictly’s Movies Week, Halloween Week and Blackpool Week?
We already know that Blackpool Week has been announced for Saturday 18th November, although dates for Movies Week and Halloween Week are yet to be confirmed – although the latter is expected to take place on 28th/29th October.
When is the Strictly final 2017?
