This week is an important week for our Strictly celebs. Get through this weekend without facing the dreaded dance off and they'll make it to Blackpool, the home of ballroom. 


It's one of Strictly's biggest, best and most over-the-top live shows, with the entire team decamping to the seaside town for a special show live from the Blackpool Tower Ballroom. So what are they doing to secure their survival? 

Helen and Aljaz are sticking with modern favourites after last week's Rumba to Adele's Hello and performing a Tango to James Bay's Hold Back The River. Current scoreboard topper Peter will be hoping to retain his top spot with a performance to Cilla Black's You're My World, while Georgia will be looking to impress with a Charleston to Hot Honey Rag from Chicago.

Katie and Anton will be hoping they are Never Never Never voted out after their Shirley Bassey-inspired Foxtrot, while Jamelia has her fingers crossed her Samba earns her A Little Respect from the formidable judges... 

Here's the full list:

Anita and Gleb will be performing the Quickstep to Don't Get Me Wrong by The Pretenders.
