The remaining nine couples take to the dance floor for the first time in a bid to impress the judges. Who will surprise, who will impress and who will be worried that their stint on Strictly could be short-lived? No-one leaves this week, as there is no public vote, but the judges scores will be carried over to the following weekend when the viewers will be able to choose their favourites.
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.
