With the semi-finals fast approaching on Strictly Come Dancing, the final four celebrities are getting ready to give it their all with the hopes of remaining in the competition.


While Musicals Week was meant to feature five stellar performances, Nigel Harman had to withdraw from the competition after sustaining an injury, which meant no celebrity faced being eliminated from Strictly.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed his exit on Saturday afternoon: "Unfortunately Nigel has sustained an injury, which means he is unable to perform in tonight’s show and has had to withdraw from Strictly."

Strictly revealed the dances for the semi-final on its official Instagram page, and it looks like we're in for a treat with some truly epic performances.

As usual, all the couples will take to the dance floor and will be scored one by one by the judging panel, including head judge Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke.

But this time, the couples will be performing two routines!

They'll be hoping to sit at the top of the leaderboard alongside Layton Williams, who received his first 40 of the season after his thrilling paso doble to Backstage Romance from Moulin Rouge! The Musical.

Bobby Brazier and Annabel Croft found themselves in the bottom half of the leaderboard, with scores being rolled over to this weekend.

Will they manage to get back to the top? As this is Strictly Come Dancing, anything could happen!

As we wait for the celebs to return to the dance floor, we've put together a list of the dances they'll be doing this week – and it's set to be a night to remember.

Here's everything you need to know about the Strictly Come Dancing Week 12 songs and dances.
