Strictly Come Dancing is coming to the end for another year next weekend, after a glitter-filled two and a half months.
And with Will Mellor, Molly Rainford, Fleur East, Helen Skelton and Hamza Yassin all still in with a chance of winning the glitterball.
Due to Qatar World Cup football games during Strictly’s usual Saturday and Sunday night slots, the semi-finals will take place live on Sunday 11 December.
The 20th Strictly final will be hosted by duo Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman on Saturday December 17, and sitting on the judging panel is Shirley Ballas, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Anton Du Beke.
Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two is on screens during the week to ensure viewers get their Strictly fix, hosted by Rylan Clark and former professional dancer Janette Manrara.
So, ahead of this year’s final, MailOnline takes a look at everything there is to know so far about the final show…
Get the glitter ready! With this year’s series well underway, here’s everything you need to know about the BBC programme…(the new line up pictured)
When is the Strictly Come Dancing 2022 final?
The final is taking place on Saturday December 17, just a week before Christmas.
The semi-final is set to air on Sunday 11 December, with the schedule having been reshuffled to ensure that both Strictly and the football don’t interfere with one another.
Last year, there was a run time of 125 minutes allocated for the glitzy final – but AJ Odudu pulled out due to injury just before, shortening this as only two couples then remained.
Who has a chance of winning Strictly Come Dancing 2022?
Dynamic duo: Favourite to win the show is Hamza Yassin, who has often found himself soaring up the leaderboard
While the remaining celebrities still have a semi-final to get through, Will Mellor, Molly Rainford, Fleur East, Helen Skelton, and Hamza Yassin will all have a chance at the Glitterball trophy if they make it that far.
Favourite to win the show is Hamza, who has often found himself soaring up the leaderboard.
