Strictly Come Dancing: Songs And Dances Revealed Ahead Of First Elimination

Get ready for a playlist featuring Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and... Doctor Doolittle.

With the first elimination of the series looming, Strictly Come Dancing bosses have announced the songs and dances that each of the 12 couples will be performing in this week’s live show.

Fresh from topping the leaderboard last week, pop singer HRVY will be dancing a Viennese Waltz to Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s lockdown anthem Stuck With U, while Maisie Smith will tackle a Tango to Miley Cyrus’ recent hit Midnight Sky.

This week will see the first Couples’ Choice routine of the series, with Nicola Adams and Katya Jones performing a unique dance to Years & Years’ Shine, while scene-stealer Bill Bailey will deliver a Quickstep to Talk To The Animals from the musical Doctor Doolittle.

And if all of that wasn’t exciting enough, former MP Jacqui Smith and Anton DuBeke will be hoping they can recover from last week’s performance with a Samba to Tom Jones’ Help Yourself.
