Strictly Come Dancing 2021 has been another stellar year for the hit competition series, with stand-out moments including Rose Ayling-Ellis’ poignant dance to celebrate the deaf community.
Fans of the show might have felt like the series has only just started, but we’re on a (fox)trot right to the finish line, with the finale looming close.
But when is the Strictly finale, and who’s favourite to win?
Here’s all you need to know.
When is the Strictly final?
There’s just a few short weeks left of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing – the final will air on Saturday, December 18.
While we still have a few eliminations to go before knowing which couples will make it to the final, the odds at the bookies are starting to make it look like Rose and Giovanni have it in the bag.
What are the latest Strictly winner odds?
Rose and Giovanni are odds-on for a second perfect score on Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies make Rose clear favourite in the betting for the Glitterball Trophy at odds of 1/5.
Rhys Stephenson is currently the least favourite to win at 100/1 – but more surprising results have come out of this show!
What are the latest Strictly elimination odds?
Elsewhere, at the other end of the scale, it’s Dan Walker who’ll head into Saturday night’s episode as the odds-on favourite to be eliminated at odds of 8/11.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said ‘Dan has got to know this position in the betting all too well over the last four weeks, yet he’s made something of a habit of defying the odds up to this point, while Rhys has survived a staggering three dance-offs already this series.
‘Punters are convinced the latter will be sent packing, while the odds suggest Dan’s time is up… we’d be surprised to see anyone else in the bottom two this weekend.’
We’ll have to wait till tonight’s show to find out.
Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 6.40pm on BBC One.
