Strictly Come Dancing - The Final

Confirmed for BBC One on 17 December at 6.40pm to 8.55pm

Saturday 17 December

6.40pm-8.55pm

BBC ONE

The wait is finally over: after 13 amazing weeks of glitter, excitement and sensational dance performances, the most glamorous night of TV has arrived as the Strictly Come Dancing Final comes live to BBC One.

Back in September, 15 celebrities entered the ballroom for the very first time, but now only the finalists remain. Get set for a dramatic night of dance as the couples battle it out in the ballroom for the very last time. The couples will dance three routines - their favourite, the judges' choice, and a spectacular show-dance, in a bid to win the viewers' votes and the 2016 Glitter Ball trophy.

Tonight the judges - Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli - will score each couple, but it is for guidance only as viewer’s votes alone will decide which couple will take home the Glitter Ball Trophy.

As well as all this, there will be spectacular group performances, magical musical moments and a host of other special surprises as the curtain comes down on another memorable series of dancefloor drama.
