Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman invite you to join them for the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing!

Fifteen couples started the competition back in September but, three months on and hundreds of dances later, they have been whittled down to just four. Tonight it will be heartbreak for one couple because only three can make it through to the grand final. Tonight will be doubly difficult for the four remaining couples, as each must perform two dances for a chance to win a place in the Strictly grand final. Voting lines will open at the end of the show. Once the judges' scores have been added to viewer votes, the two lowest-scoring couples will perform again in the dreaded dance-off in the results show. There is only space for three couples in the final, so who is within touching distance of the glitterball, and who will be waltzing out of the competition at the last hurdle?
