The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas 2021 special is set to air on Christmas Day and is sure to liven up the festivities this year.
The episode is pre-recorded, and is a perfect addition to the BBC's Christmas TV line-up, joining the likes of a Call the Midwife 2021 Christmas special and a Death in Paradise Christmas special. So there's plenty to look forward to!
Speaking about the Strictly special, Head Judge Shirley Ballas said: "I think people love to sit down with a glass of wine on Christmas Day, after eating too much Christmas pudding and watch the magic that Strictly is. They know that this is the final bit of Strictly they’re going to get before it starts again the following year."
The full line-up for the festive dancing competition was recently revealed, and now we know which songs and dances will be performed this Christmas.
