Wholl be heading out of Strictly tonight? (Picture: BBC)

Strictly Come Dancing has given us its annual movie week – but one of the 14 remaining couples is about to end up on the cutting room floor.

Yup, another Sunday night results show is looming, during which two more celebs will face the dreaded dance-off and the next couple to leave the competition will be decided.

But just what time is it on tonight?

Well heres the thing. While weve become used to seeing Strictlys results show on at 7.15pm, its actually moved in the schedules this week.

Yup, the results will now be revealed at the slightly later time of 7.45pm – making way for the new series of Doctor Who, which is kicking off in its new Sunday night home at 6.45pm.



So if you tune in at the normal time youll be a little bit early – but you will get to see Jodie Whittaker in action as she settles into the role of Time Lord.

Can I still vote for my favourite?

As far as voting goes – sorry guys, if you havent yet voted, youve missed your chance to do so this week.

The voting window for Strictly is a pretty short one, with the lines opening at the end of Saturday nights show, and staying open for around 20 minutes only – so you need to get in there quick.

You can however vote in future shows by mobile, by landline – with numbers given out during the show – or online at

Saturday nights show saw Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice top the leaderboard with four nines – 36 points in total – for their Grease-inspired quickstep, while Lee Ryan – who narrowly escaped elimination last week, was left at the bottom with just 19 points.

However Lauren Steadman and AJ Pritchard and Dr Ranj Singh and Janette Manrara werent that far ahead, each scoring 20 points – which potentially puts them in the danger zone too.

Who leaves? Well find out soon enough…
