Why isn’t Strictly airing as usual on BBC One next Saturday?

Be sure to come dance will face a change in normal broadcast pattern on Saturday 3rd December.

The celebrity dance competition is normally broadcast on BBC One on Saturday nights, with the pre-taped results show following on Sunday.

However, due to the parallel World Cup in Qatar, there will be some adjustments.

The quarter-finals, which will see the remaining celebs dancing to classic musical songs, will now take place on Friday 2 December, with the results showing on Saturday 3 December taking place on Sunday.

The semi-finals will take place on Sunday 11th December. It is not yet known when the semi-final results will be broadcast.

The grand finale is scheduled for Saturday, December 17th.

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.”

On Tuesday (22nd November) it was announced that Kym Marsh would not be taking part in the Saturday 26th November episode as she has tested positive for Covid. An elimination will still take place, meaning six couples will face off in the quarterfinals.

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.”
