Life is a cabaret, old chum, and the remaining couples hope the judges won’t rain on their parade tonight. They’ll be razzle-dazzling their way through a special musicals-themed show in a bid to win votes, a place in next week’s semi-final and even a new post-Strictly career if Andrew Lloyd Webber is watching…

If we’re honest, it’s difficult to imagine any of the high-kicking routines surpassing Ore and Joanne’s stunning tribute to Singin’ in the Rain earlier in the series, but with West End choreographer Craig Revel Horwood more critical then ever, the couples will be desperate to impress.

To pile on the pressure, they’ll also be involved in a spectacular opening routine, featuring Tess, Claudia and all four judges. Bring on the jazz hands!
