Scoreboard leaders John Whaite and Johannes Radebe are bidding for glory this week with a Quickstep to Creedence Clearwater Revival's Bad Moon Rising.

Meanwhile Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu will be hoping to fight their way back from last week's dance off into their usual place near the top with a Paso Doble to Jeff Wayne's The Eve of the War.

Last weekend, viewers thought the chemistry between AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington might have spilled over into real life and this time they will dance a romantic Viennese Waltz to Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande.
