Get ready to rock - it’s Blackpool Week!

Oh we do like to be beside the seaside… especially when it involves an incredible night of dancing in the iconic Tower Ballroom. That’s right, it’s Blackpool Week!

All of our Strictly stars have ventured north as we hit Week Nine of the competition, and they're gearing up for a Saturday night like no other. Ashley will be dancing on the tables, Graeme’s giving the Theatre/Jazz category a go and Charles is bringing a pool party to the dancefloor. What more could you want?

If that wasn’t sweeter than a stick of rock, our celebs and Pros will kick off proceedings with an epic dance to Gloria Estefan’s biggest hits – and the superstar herself will be joining them!

Don’t miss the Strictly seaside extravaganza tonight at 6.45pm on BBC One, and get all the behind-the-scenes action from the Tower Ballroom on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook across this wonderful weekend.
