Wondering when Strictly Come Dancing is on this weekend? You've come to the right place.

Strictly Come Dancing is on at different times this week due to the England game. But don't worry, as you'll still get both the live show and the results, so you don't have to miss out on your weekly dose of dancing and sparkle.

The next episode of Strictly Come Dancing 2022 is the anticipated semi-final, where our remaining couples will bust their finest moves in the hope of staying in the competition, and getting one step closer to the coveted glitterball trophy.

Fleur East and Vito Coppola, Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystał, Helen Skelton and Gorka Márquez, Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, and Will Mellor and Nancy Xu are all through to the semi-final, but only one couple will be victorious and crowned the next Strictly Come Dancing winners. 

But when is Strictly Come Dancing on TV? Here's what you need to know about the upcoming scheduling changes.

When is Strictly Come Dancing on this weekend?

This week's live show, the semi-final, will air on Sunday, December 11 at 7:15 pm, instead of airing on Saturday night.
