The grand final of the 2021 series of Strictly Come Dancing is nearly here and we have three contestants competing this weekend before one of them lifts the trophy.


Yep, the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 line-up and the Strictly Come Dancing professionals have dwindled down to just three pairings - but it will only be a winning night for one of them.

There have been some more high scores from the judges as the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard took shape. But who will be crowned the winner?

So once you've enjoyed all the performances, get ready to vote for your favourite!

Here's how you can vote on Strictly Come Dancing.

How to vote online for Strictly Come Dancing

First of all, you'll need to register to vote online – or if you have BBC account already set up from last year, you can just sign in.

Waltz on over to the Strictly homepage. When the vote is open the link to vote will appear at the top of the page.

The couples will be listed in alphabetical order. Select the button next to their names and click "vote now" to submit your choice.

And you're able to vote more than once, although there is an upper limit on how many times you can vote per episode.

When will the vote open?

Voting opens when every couple has performed and, like every year, that vote is not open for long so make sure you cast yours quickly!

Is it free to vote online for Strictly?

Yes it's free! There is no charge for voting online.

What are the Strictly Come Dancing phone voting numbers?

To vote by phone, these are the numbers to add to the end for each performer. So it is 09015 2252 and then…

  • John Whaite and Johannes Radebe (08)
  • Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice (09)

How much does it cost to vote for Strictly by phone?

Costs vary – see the BBC's Terms and Conditions for full details.
