Strictly Come Dancing saw Greg Wise leave the BBC competition last week after scoring just 19 points. Its exit has brought some celebrities closer to the bottom of the rankings, with still everything to dance to. Tonight’s dances will be crucial before the public vote.
What time is Strictly Come Dancing tonight?
This year’s Strictly didn’t come without problems, as there were several dropouts and missed weeks for the stars.
In week four, Ugo Monye had to withdraw from competition due to a back injury, but luckily he made a full recovery for week five.
Unfortunately, Judi Love will not participate after a positive Covid-19 test result – she is the second star to do so.
Tom Fletcher missed week two for the same reason, although the star has been involved in the competition ever since.

Love’s absence brings this week’s lineup down to 10, though there will be 10 again next week once Love returns and the week five release is revealed.
All the dances and songs have been revealed, and the show will continue as the celebrities train harder than ever to wow the judges.
Strictly will return at 7.15 p.m. on BBC One, with Sunday’s show scheduled for the same time at 7.15 p.m.
Regarding Love’s absence in week five, a BBC spokesperson said: “Judi Love has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating in accordance with the latest government guidelines.
The competition intensified after week four, with Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec taking first place with 36 points.
Love managed to stay in the competition by surviving the dreaded Sunday dance, with three of the four judges choosing her to stay.
Tilly Ramsay with 32 points, Adam Peaty with 32 points, Rhys Stephenson with 31 and Tom Fletcher with 29 joined Davies near the top of the fourth week.
Joining Love near the bottom is Dan Walker with 26 and Rose Ayling-Ellis with 27.
