Strictly Come Dancing

6:30pm Saturday 22 December on BBC ONE

The wait is finally over. Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly present the ultimate ballroom battle – it’s the Strictly Come Dancing Grand Final 2012.

After spinning, high-kicking and sashaying their way through 11 weeks of dance, the final four couples take to the floor for a night of show-stopping routines to see who will be crowned the ultimate dancing champion of 2012.

Who has saved their best dance for last and who will outshine the rest with their spectacular showdance? As always, the fearsome foursome of Craig, Darcey, Len and Bruno are on hand to offer their critique but it is down to viewers to choose their champion.

The winner will be announced on Strictly Come Dancing: The Results, which can be seen on the same night as the final, when one couple will lift the Glitterball trophy.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one night, Strictly will be joined by one of the biggest music acts on the planet.
