IT HAS been another year of thrilling sambas, emotion-fuelled waltzes and hypnotic jives for celebrities and their partners on BBC One’s hit show Strictly Come Dancing.
Tonight is the night the remaining couples battle it out for the coveted Glitterball prize and even more fame, where the dancers will perform three routines, one of their pick, one set by the judges and a last show dance.
It looks set to be a tight competition to the Glitterball, with Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse going up against Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden, and Emma Barton with Anton Du Beke, as they will command the dance-floor in hope to be crowned winner of Strictly’s fourteenth series.
International pop icon Taylor Swift will also stop by to dazzle the audience with a hotly-awaited performance.
However, Strictly bosses fear the show’s Glitterball Trophy is cursed as it fell apart just days before the grand final. According to the Mail Online, the trophy shed its mirrored pieces as the contestants descended to rehearsals for tonight’s live show. A source told the publication that the programme is known for its curses with romances and now they have a slightly different one.
Thankfully this year’s series was not fuelled by controversial romances, but rumours are now circulating about the relationship between England football legend David James and his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova.
A video from Aljaz Skorjanec’s Instagram stories showed the pair getting close as they rehearsed, with David, 49, seen wrapping his arms around the 30-year-old Ukranian dancer.
