It’s the Semi Final! We can’t contain our excitement here at Strictly HQ. It’s been a tough 11 weeks for our five remaining couples, they’ve gone through a lot of blood, sweat and sequins to make it this far. The glitter ball trophy is within reach but not for one. Which couples will make it through to next week’s Final, and which couple will take their final bow?
In tonight’s show, we’ll see our couples perform not one, but two dances. It’s a jam-packed night full of highs and low (swings) and a lot of razzle dazzle! We’ve seen the dress rehearsal and the standards are higher than ever.
Are you ready for tonight's Semi-Final extravaganza? Here's Louis Smith's eye watering warmup!
Stay on site as we bring you exclusive backstage photos of our couples as they leave the dancefloor and share their experience of the night.
Look who is back for Red Button? It's Robbie!
