What time is Strictly on tonight? BBC show to crown new champions as four couples go for win

It's the big one on Saturday night, the final of Strictly Come Dancing and four couples are left in the running for Glitterball glory.

It was back in September that the new series of the hit BBC show started and since then, millions and millions of viewers have been glued to their screens every Saturday and the odd Friday, Sunday and even Monday, to get their weekly slice of ballroom action. Loose Women star Kaye Adams was the first celeb to axe from Strictly this year and since then many others have followed her and pro partner Kai Widdrington.

Will Mellor just missed out on making the final, with him and pro dancer Nancy Xu falling into the bottom for the first time in the semi final, before getting the boot. Their elimination means that Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, Hamza Yassin, Helen Skelton and Fleur East are left standing in the competition and it's wildlife cameraman Hamza that is favourite to win, having been bookies' frontrunner for well over a month now.

The final will see each of the four remaining couples perform three routines - one chosen for them by the judges, their own favourite number from the series and their highly anticipated Show Dance.

What time is the Strictly final on?

The Strictly Come Dancing final will be live on BBC One from 7.05pm. And the good news for fans is that it's a bumper episode, running right through to 9.35pm.

The build up to the final will see the BBC air a Strictly special of The Weakest Link right before the final, with that starting at 6.20pm.
