Strictly Come Dancing has looked different than ever before in 2020, with dancers taking to the floor without a live audience, but it’s been one of the most enjoyable and impressive series the show has seen in years.
The competition is closer than ever as the show reaches its final stages, with a high standard of performances making it more difficult than ever to call.
But when is the Strictly Come Dancing final, and when will the winner be revealed?
Here’s everything you need to know.
When is the Strictly 2020 final?
This year, the winner will be announced in the live final on Saturday, December 19 on BBC One.
It comes after eight weeks of performances, with the launch show airing back on October 17.
What time is Strictly on TV?
The final will air earlier than usual, beginning at 6pm on BBC One. The extended episode will last until 8.20pm on December 19.
The semi-final, which airs on December 12, airs at 7pm.
Who left Strictly last week?
JJ Chalmers became the latest celeb to leave the competition in the quarter final stage.
Viewers were left in tears following the former marine and Invictus Games medallist’s exit on Sunday December 7, with professional partner Amy Dowden paying an emotional tribute on the show.
The pair left the competition following their Charleston to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which left them in the bottom two with Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing and his dance partner Karen Hauer.
Amy paid a heartfelt tribute to JJ, struggling to hold back the tears as she said: ‘It has been an absolute honour to be your partner and most importantly friend, throughout your Strictly experience.
‘He is, and everybody would agree, one of the world’s most truest gentlemen. I honestly believe from working with JJ over the last few months I’ve become a better person and I’ve learned so much.’
It comes after Nicola Adams and her professional partner Katya Jones were forced to quit the show after Katya contracted coronavirus, but will return to perform a dance in the final.
