'Strictly Come Dancing': Blackpool Week Songs And Dances Revealed

Including what will no doubt be an unforgettable take on Judy Garland by Graeme Swann.

The songs and dances the remaining eight ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestants will be performing live at Blackpool Tower this weekend have been revealed.

Among the tracks each of the couples will be performing routines to include songs made popular by Judy Garland, Barry Manilow and one of the most important and inspiring artists of the 1990s.

This week will feature another Couples’ Choice performance, with Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse tackling a Theatre and Jazz performance, fresh from landing in the dance-off for the second time last weekend.

Just eight couples remain in the competition, following Danny John-Jules and Amy Dowden’s elimination last week.

Danny’s exit came after a tough few days, in which he was forced to deny rumours that he’d been “bullying” his professional partner, which she has also insisted is not the case.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ airs live from Blackpool Tower on Saturday night at 6.45pm on BBC One.
