Be sure to come dance has experienced a change to its normal broadcast schedule this weekend.
The celebrity dance competition is normally broadcast on BBC One on Saturday nights, with the pre-taped results show following on Sunday.
Due to the World Cup taking place in Qatar at the same time, however, there were some adjustments.
The first semi-final will air tonight (Sunday 11 December) at 7:15 p.m., while the second half will be on Monday 12 December at 8:15 p.m.
The finale is expected to air on Saturday 17th December, however this is yet to be confirmed.
A Strict Speaker previously confirmed The Independent: “Be sure to come dance will continue to bring glitz, glamor and glorious dancing to homes across the country during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.”
The first perfect 40 of the season came from Fleur East and her professional partner Vito Coppola in week nine of the competition. The couple performed a couples-choice routine to a medley of Destiny’s Child songs “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” and “Lose My Breath.”
After performing the fast-paced routine, judge Craig Revel Horwood — who had yet to give anyone a 10 mark for that series — told East, “One word, three syllables, beginning with F: fabulous.”
The high praise continued when Motsi told Mabuse East that she was the missing member of Destiny’s Child, while Shirley Ballas said it was an “iconic routine that will go down in history.”
Last week’s results program (3 December) was broadcast a day earlier than usual due to the BBC’s coverage of the World Cup.
Actor and singer Kym Marsh left the BBC competition after a dance-off with Molly Rainford.
Craif Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse opted to save Rainford after both pairs performed their routines again, with Anton Du saving Beke Marsh.
Lead judge Shirley Ballas saved Rainford and sent Marsh home – but all the judges said it was a “difficult” decision.
