There were plenty of screams and sparkles during Strictly Come Dancing’s 2021 Halloween week, with Rose Ayling-Ellis scoring the first perfect 40 of the series with her pro partner Giovanni Pernice. But unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Judi Love as she was sent home last week.

Judi described her time on Strictly as a “life-changing experience” and showed her appreciation to her partner Graziano Di Prima: “Graziano has supported me, stuck by me, and took me to a place I never thought I could go and so for that, I love you so much.”

The remaining nine couples will continue competing for the Glitterball trophy once again with a new and exciting set of dance routines and songs. Rose is the current favourite to win the show after her epic Halloween performance. 

As the competition heats up, here are the announced songs and dances each couple will be dancing this week...
