Strictly Come Dancing has confirmed there’s going to be an exciting change to the Grand Final this year.
In series gone by, the four couples who have made the final have each performed two dances before one was eliminated. Then, the remaining three finalists would perform their Showdance, with the winner being chosen.

In the #Strictly Grand Final each of our four couples will dance a Judges' Pick, a Showdance and their own Favourite Dance. It's a public vote only. Then… the winners will be announced. ???? https://t.co/BM4x7yDiOu

Then, for the first time this series, it’s all down to the viewers’ votes. During the rest of the series, the votes would be combined with the judges’ scores to determine which celebrities placed where. However in the final, who takes home that Glitterball trophy is solely down to viewers.
Saturday’s final will be a two and a half hour spectacular featuring music from Ed Sheeran.
Strictly Come Dancing airs 6:30pm on Saturday 16th December on BBC1
