The theme week is always a highlight in the BBC One show's calendar and many of the couples talked about how keen they were to take part in it.

One of those couples was Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden, dancing a couple's choice routine to Les Miserables' On My Own, who told Yahoo UK ahead of the dances being announced that the musical they would be taking inspiration from was "the ultimate".
Fletcher added: "Growing up, I was in musicals from eight or nine years old, and my sister is a musical theatre actress so musicals have been a huge part of my life and my family's life, so I always thought I would love to get to musicals week."
Joining Fletcher in his dream week are scoreboard leaders Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu, who will be playing on the CBBC presenter's strengths for fast routines with a Jive to Footloose.
Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice look set to create another memorable performance after last week's silent dance success, with a Quickstep to Love Is An Open Door from Frozen The Musical.
"In this dance we have a very special moment, and I'm doing it for the deaf community." 💖 So much power in the silence of Rose and Giovanni's routine. #Strictly @RoseAylingEllis @pernicegiovann1 pic.twitter.com/kW8OTggI5X
