The successful couples will be one step closer to the series final and the chance to lift the Glitterball Trophy.

Last weekend saw Fletcher and Dowden crash out of the competition in musicals week, the themed episode that the McFly star had said he most wanted to take part in.

Judge Craig Revel Horwood, who missed last week's show as he has been isolating after a positive COVID test, is expected to return this weekend.
