Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman invite viewers to join them for an evening of sequins and sparkles as the remaining couples hit the ballroom floor. 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.
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.
