Strictly Come Dancing bosses have teased what to expect from this year’s grand finale with the release of the songs and dances each of the couples will be performing to.

Singer HRVY, EastEnders actor Maisie Smith, comedian Bill Bailey and reality star Jamie Laing will be battling it out to take home the Glitterball Trophy in Saturday’s live show.

Each of the finalists will perform three dances in a bid to win the BBC ballroom show – one dance picked by the judges, their own favourite dance of the series, and the famous Showdance.
