How to vote in Strictly Come Dancing 2020 online and by phone

All the instructions and information you need to make sure you can vote for your favourite couple on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing 2020.

Strictly judges

Following an array of spectacular Strictly Come Dancing performances last weekend, it looks as though any one of the celebrities could clinch that Glitterball trophy, with the scores looking pretty tight on the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard.


Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer topped the board last Saturday night with their epic street dance performance to Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now), with Maisie Smith and Gorka Marquez coming not too far behind alongside Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice.

After blowing the judges away and scoring two 10s with their incredible Charleston to Baby Face by Julie Andrews in Week Four, Clara Amfo and Aljaz Skorjanec suffered a bit of a slip-up with their Samba to That’s The Way I Like It by KC And The Sunshine Band, but there’s plenty of time to get back on track.

Fans will be acutely aware of the fact there’s only one way to make sure their favourite makes it through to the next week, especially in light of the shock Week Four result, which saw darling of the Strictly judges Maisie land in the dance-off again.

You can vote for your favourite via phone or online, so read on for our guide on how to vote in Strictly Come Dancing.
