The competition is getting fierce in Strictly Come Dancing 2021 this Saturday as the remaining couples will be dancing for a place in the following week’s Quarter Final.

Last time we said a sad farewell to Tom Fletcher and his partner Amy Dowden as he was the eighth celebrity to leave the competition after a dance-off with Rhys Stephenson. 

Viewers were just as gutted as Tom to see him leave, but Tom seemed positive about his departure, as he said to host Tess Daly: “Honestly, I’ve had the best time, I’ve loved every second of it. I’ve made the best friend in Amy, you’ve been amazing, thank you so much for teaching me how to dance, I know it was a struggle at times. 

“It’s an amazing show, everyone that works on it, all of you guys have been amazing, I’ve loved getting to know you. Thank you so much, it’s been the best experience and I don’t regret a single minute of it, so thank you everyone so much. I’m gutted to leave.”

As the couples put on their dancing shoes and don their sparkly attire once again, let’s take a look at what the remaining couples will be dancing to this week...
