Christmas is nearly here, which can only mean one thing... it’s the Strictly Final this weekend! So make sure that on Saturday you put down those heavy, panic-buy filled shopping bags, and get yourself on the sofa in time for 6.30pm when you can stop worrying about what to get Great Aunt Doris and immerse yourself in the glittery joy of the Strictly Final instead.

And what a Final it will be, because for the first time ever, it’s an all-female line-up.  This week Abbey, Natalie, Sophie and Susanna will be upping their game as they each perform a former dance picked by the Judges and a showdance. The four couples will then have a bit of time to catch their breath before we are back on screen at 8.40pm for the Results Show. One couple will be voted out of the competition and the final three will go on to dance their favourite routine from the series.  Take a look below to see which routines have been chosen and what songs they’ll be performing them to:

Abbey and Aljaz:
Judges’ Choice:  The Waltz to “Kissing You” by Des’ree.
Showdance: “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns N Roses
Couples’ Favourite: The Quickstep to “Walking On Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves

Natalie and Artem:
Judges’ Choice: The Cha Cha to Boney M’s “Rasputin”
Showdance:  “Steppin’ Out with My Baby” by Christina Aguilera and Tony Bennett
Couples’ Favourite: American Smooth to Jennifer Hudson’s “And I’m Telling You, I’m Not Going”

Sophie and Brendan:
Judges’ Choice: Viennese Waltz to “My Favourite Things” by Julie Andrews
Showdance: “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston
Couples’ Favourite: The Charleston to “Rock It For Me” by Caravan Palace

Susanna and Kevin:
