It's the Strictly Come Dancing quarter final, and that means one thing - musicals week has arrived.

The routines for the final theme week of Strictly 2023 have been announced, with fans sure to be thrilled by the line-up of West End shows set to feature on the dancefloor this Saturday.

From Foxtrots to Salsas, there's something for everyone as the five remaining couples take to the ballroom - but whose performance will be worthy of an encore for the semi final?

Strictly Musicals Week: Quarter Final Routine Reveal

  • Annabel and Johannes: Foxtrot to For Good from Wicked

  • Bobby and Dianne: Salsa to (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing

  • Ellie and Vito: Quickstep to Belle from Beauty And The Beast

  • Layton and Nikita: Paso Doble to Backstage Romance from Moulin Rouge! The Musical

  • Nigel and Katya: Charleston to Step In Time from Mary Poppins

Last weekend there was a shock result for Layton Williams and Nikita Kuzmin as they landed in the dance off after an uncharacteristically disappointing score.

But surely West End star Williams will find his groove again in musicals week, where he and Kuzmin will dance a Paso Doble inspired by Moulin Rouge! The Musical.

By contrast, tennis ace Annabel Croft and her partner Johannes Radebe had their best week ever last time, scoring a huge 36 points - can they continue their success with a Foxtrot from stage show favourite Wicked?

Former Coronation Street star Ellie Leach and her partner Vito Coppola have barely put a foot wrong in the contest so far and are clear favourites to win.

Musicals week will see the rumoured real-life couple take inspiration from Beauty And The Beast with a Quickstep.

Actor Nigel Harman and Katya Jones had an intense routine last weekend, but this time they'll be getting in touch with their fun side for a Charleston to Step In Time from Mary Poppins.

Finally, EastEnders star Bobby Brazier and Dianne Buswell might be least likely to win according to the bookies, but they're giving the semi-finals their best shot with a Salsa to (I've Had) The Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing, which may well include that iconic overhead lift.

TV presenter Angela Scanlon and her partner Carlos Gu just missed out on the quarter final when they were voted out last weekend.

Who can make it to the last couple of weeks of the contest?

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One at 7.25pm on Saturday.
