Just five celebrities remain – who will make it through to the final?
It's double the dance this weekend as our couples perform twice! And the first Rumba of #Strictly 2020.

It’s fair to say that when we’ve penned these little snippets in anticipation of cracking evenings of Strictly fun, Bill Bailey has invariably come in for lots of admiring comment. He’s a seasoned, accomplished all-rounder, and that entertainment versatility now clearly embraces dancing to a very decent level indeed.
Well – it seems that the Great British Public are of similar mind, for Bill is currently our 5/4 favourite to lift the Glitter Ball in next Saturday’s final. For now, we’ve a potentially thrilling semi tonight, and full betting not only on the outright, but next elimination, gender of the winner, top male, and top female.
Two dances each – stamina to the fore then. Maisie Smith is a 10/1 shot for ultimate glory – a slightly comical state of affairs given her obvious ability. She seems not to have ‘clicked’ with said Great British Public though, and without their support it’s an uphill climb in heavy boots and then some.
