It’s almost that time again! Strictly Come Dancing’s Blackpool Week is one of the show’s most popular as every contestant really wants the chance to dance in the famous Tower Ballroom.


We’ve witnessed so many charming scenes in the glittering dance haven of the north west over the years, including some stunning performances and some very special group dances.

But of course only a select few can make the journey and, after Aston Merrygold’s shock elimination last weekend, it’s never been more difficult to predict who has what it takes to hotfoot their way to the home of ballroom.

Merrygold was RadioTimes.com readers’ third favourite to WIN the competition, and week after week you told us you weren’t expecting him to be booted out any time soon.

Now just couples remain in the competition and only eight of them can make it through – who do YOU think should leave the show after Week 8?


Find out who’ll be leaving Strictly Come Dancing in week 8 in the BBC1 results show on Sunday November 12th at 7.20pm
