Strictly Come Dancing has reached a pivotal part of the 2023 series as the remaining dancers headed to Blackpool.

The cast hit the legendary Blackpool Tower Ballroom, a venue very familiar to former Come Dancing host Angela Rippon.

Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin gave us one of the most incredible Couple's Choice routines ever seen on Strictly, but Craig Revel Horwood still refused to budge from nine points, leaving them still chasing a perfect 40.

Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola also impressed with an identical score for their Blackpool-themed Charleston, but who will find themselves in the dance off this time?

Here's all the action as it happened from Blackpool.
