Strictly Come Dancing Stars To Tackle Star Wars, Dreamgirls And The Simpsons For Movie Week

Lights, camera, action – who's ready for Movie Week?

Strictly Come Dancing bosses have announced the songs the 11 remaining couples will be dancing to when the show returns for its annual Movie Week special this weekend.

Among the films that the contestants will be paying homage to include Moulin Rouge!, with Clara Amfo set to perform a Tango to Lady Marmalade, and Grease, with Nicola Adams delivering a Jive to a track from the classic musical.

Other films on the list include Star Wars, Dreamgirls and The Simpsons Movie, with Max George set to undergo quite the transformation to become Homer Simpson.

He and Dianne Buswell are performing one of two Couple’s Choice routines this week, while Caroline Quentin will also be delivering a musical theatre routine to Everything’s Coming Up Roses from Gypsy.
