Strictly Come Dancing has been adding glitter to Saturday nights since it started back in September.

We have seen 15 celebrities partnered up with professional dancers to compete for the coveted glitterball trophy.

The end of the 2021 series is officially in sight as just six celebrities remain in the running, including AJ Odudu and John Whaite.

Last week’s highlights included EastEnder’s actress Rose Ayling-Ellis performing a Frozen-themed Quickstep with her partner Giovanni Pernice, while Tilly Ramsay topped the leaderboard with her Matilda-inspired Couples Choice routine.

It was McFly star Tom Fletcher who had to say goodbye last week, as the competition starts moving into its final few performances.

But what time is Strictly on tonight, who is left to compete and when can we expect the final to air?

The live show kicks off at 6.55pm on BBC One tonight, and ends at 8pm.

The judging panel – which usually consists of Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke – will be without Motsi this evening as she is self-isolating in Germany.

She is set to be replaced by Oscar-nominated star of stage and screen Cynthia Ervio, who also stood in for Craig last week after he had tested positive for Covid.

Craig will be back on the panel this week after coming out of quarantine on Wednesday.

Which couples still remain on Strictly?

As we reach week 10 of the competition, only six couples remain in the competition.

Here are the remaining couples, and what they are set to dance this week:

  • AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington – Couple’s Choice to Make Me Feel by Janelle Monáe
  • Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice – Paso Doble to California Dreamin’ by Sia
  • Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin – Samba to Levitating by Dua Lipa
  • Dan Walker and Nadiya Bychkova – Rumba to Desperado by Eagles
  • John Whaite and Johannes Radebe – Argentine Tango to The 5th by David Garrett
  • Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu – Waltz to You Light Up My Life by Whitney Houston


Rose is currently the bookies favourite to go all the way to lift the trophy, while Dan’s time on the dancefloor may be at its end.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: ‘Punters have been backing Rose in their swarms since pretty much day one, and with her odds of winning the glitterball trophy at record lows, it looks like she’s on course for another perfect score this weekend.’

He added: ‘The immediate future isn’t as bright for Dan Walker, however, with the latest odds suggesting he’ll finally be sent home. That being said, this is a position in the betting the BBC Breakfast star knows all too well, so don’t be too surprised if he upsets the odds once again.’

The current odds for who will win Strictly are:

  • Rose – 1/5
  • AJ – 8/1
  • John – 9/1
  • Dan – 25/1
  • Rhys – 50/1
  • Tilly – 100/1

When is the Strictly 2021 final?

The final is set to air on BBC One on Saturday, December 18, although the exact time is not yet known.

Most broadcasts through the series have started somewhere between 6.30 and 7pm, and it is likely the final will follow suit.

Strictly Come Dancing airs tonight at 6.55pm on BBC One.
