The BBC have revealed the song and dance choices ahead of the Strictly Coming Dancing grand finale.

Kelvin Fletcher and partner Oti Mabuse, Emma Barton and Anton Du Beke and Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden will compete to win the famous glitterball trophy on Saturday night.

The three couples will take to the dance floor for the very last time and will each vie for success with three routines: one dance chosen by the judges, one showdance and one personal favourite from the series.

Fletcher and Mabuse will reprise their rumba to Bill Withers’ Ain’t No Sunshine from week four, which memorably caused a stir with judges and viewers, and will also perform a showdance to The Isley Brothers’ Shout.

Top marks: Fletcher and Mabuse received 40 points for their routine last week (BBC)

Zeroual and Dowden, who made it to the final after beating Chris Ramsey in last week’s dance-off, will perform their quickstep from episode eight once more, while their showdance will be a routine to A Million Dreams from the Greatest Showman.

Barton and Du Beke will rewind to musicals week and bring back their Charleston to Thoroughly Modern Millie. They will also dance to Irving Berlin’s Let Yourself Go.

The contestants’ favourite dances are yet to be revealed.

Judges Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse will score the contestants out of 10 as usual, but this time their marks are just for guidance, as the winner will be decided on the basis of the public vote only.

Here are the Strictly Come Dancing final songs and dances in full (with favourite dances to be announced…)

Emma and Anton

  • Judges’ Pick - Charleston to Thoroughly Modern Millie (from episode 11)

  • Showdance - Let Yourself Go by Irving Berlin

Karim and Amy

  • Judges’ Pick - Quickstep to Mr. Pinstripe Suit (from episode seven)

  • Showdance - A Million Dreams by Pink

Kelvin and Oti

  • Judges’ Pick - Rumba to Ain’t Do Sunshine (from episode four)

The final will also see the Strictly professionals open the show with a group number, with the entire class of 2019 returning for one last group dance.

Taylor Swift is also set to perform a song from her latest studio album Lover.

The Strictly Come Dancing final airs on December 14 at 7.05pm on BBC One.
