How You Can Vote
References to the “Producers” shall be to FremantleMedia Limited t/a Thames, and Simco Limited t/a Syco Entertainment. References to “we/us” and “our” shall be to the Producers together with the BBC.
Voting is by telephone or via the website: www.bbc.co.uk/greatestdancer
Telephone Vote: Voters in the UK can choose either to call from their landline using the long (11-digit) number for the act/s of their choice or from their mobile phones using the short (7-digit) number for the act/s of their choice. Please note that callers from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man should call from their landlines using the long (11-digit) number to avoid higher mobile charges, as the short (7-digit) numbers are not available in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for reasons outside of our control.
Please do not attempt to vote by calling a 7-digit short number from a landline.
The numbers to vote for each act will be given out during the live shows.
Vote lines are opened and closed at the times specified on the programme. Please do not call before the lines open or after the lines have closed as your vote will not be counted. Please be aware voting times may change.
Calls to the long (11-digit) number from landlines and mobiles cost 15p plus your network’s access charge. To vote from your mobile in the UK, please call the short (7-digit) number announced for your chosen act. Calls from mobiles to the short (7-digit) number cost 15p per vote and should cost less than calling the long (11-digit) number from your mobile so please, if you can, dial the short (7-digit) number from your mobile. You cannot text and you cannot dial the short (7-digit) number from a landline.
Online Vote: Viewers in the UK (including Channel Islands and Isle of Man) will also be able to vote online by accessing the following link http://www.bbc.co.uk/greatestdancer. Viewers who wish to vote online will need to sign in to a BBC account at https://www.bbc.com/signin. If you do not have a BBC account, you can register for one for free at https://www.bbc.com/register.
If you have any trouble registering or signing in, you can visit the help pages at https://www.bbc.com/signin/help. The online vote will be open during the same period as the telephone lines. Please check your broadband or mobile contract to check the cost of using data services.
The results of the telephone vote and the online vote will be aggregated prior to any announcements.
If you are watching The Greatest Dancer on BBC iPlayer, following through a website or any other time shift, catch up or on demand service you should not try to vote since the lines and online vote may have closed.
