Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present as the eight remaining couples return to the dance-floor to once again demonstrate the routines they have spent the past week honing via intensive practice. Each pair will be fighting to earn a spot among the line-up for the Blackpool special, and Len Goodman, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood are on hand to judge each pro-celebrity pairing's abilities. At the end of this evening's show, voting lines open to give members of the public a chance to have their say on the night's performances.
The show pairs a number of celebrities with professional ballroom dancers who each week compete against each other to impress a panel of judges and the viewing public in order to survive potential elimination. Through telephone voting, viewers vote for whom they would like to stay, the results of the poll being combined with the ranking of the panel of judges.
The show is broadcast live on BBC One on Saturday evenings, and is presented by Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly. The judging panel consists mainly of Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Craig Revel Horwood.
