Alexandra Burke and partner Gorka Marquez will be hoping to top the leaderboard again after their show-stopping Argentine Tango last week, as they take on a Quickstep to ‘The Gold Diggers’ Song (We’re In The Money)’ from ‘42nd Street’.

Meanwhile, the current bookies’ favourite Debbie McGee and her pro partner Giovanni Pernice will be performing a Samba to Spice Girls hits ‘Wannabe’ and ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’

Take a look at the full list below:

  • Gemma and Aljaz dance the American Smooth to ‘Downtown’ by Petula Clark
  • Mollie and AJ will perform the Charleston to ‘Wings’ by Little Mix
  • Susan and Kevin Paso Doble to Scott & Fran’s Paso Doble from ‘Strictly Ballroom’
  • Davood and Nadiya will also Paso Doble to ‘Live And Let Die’ by Paul McCartney and Wings
  • Joe and Katya dance the Salsa to ‘Ride On Time’ by Black Box
  • Jonnie and Oti will Tango to ‘Sweet Dreams’ by Eurythmics
  • Alexandra and Gorka will Quickstep to ‘The Gold Diggers’ Song (We’re In The Money)’ from ‘42nd Street’
  • Debbie and Giovanni perform the Samba to Spice Girls Medley (‘Wannabe’ / ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’)

Last week saw Ruth Langsford and Anton Du Beke just miss out on a place at Blackpool, when they were voted off by the judges, following a dance-off with Jonnie Peacock and Oti Mabuse.

Ruth’s ‘Loose Women’ co-host Coleen Nolan later slammed the show’s judges for “cruel” and “out of order” comments they made to her.

“I didn’t think a lot of them were constructive criticism, I just thought some of them, especially Bruno’s, came across as nasty,” she said.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ continues on Saturday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
