The stage is set, the sequins are on and audiences in the studio and in homes across the country prepare to take their seats for the Strictly Come Dancing final.

Ellie Leach, Bobby Brazier and Layton Williams are all ready to take to the dancefloor with the aim of clutching that famous Glitterball trophy. For weeks, audiences have clapped and cheered as they faced off competition from other stars with their partners Vito Coppola, Dianne Buswell and Nikita Kuzmin.

All three will perform three dances each for judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel-Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke before viewers cast their votes.

Over 9.2 million people tuned in last year to watch wildlife cameraman Hamza Yissin lift the trophy. He and his professional partner Jowita Przystal took the win in last year’s final which also featured Vito with partner and pop star Fleur East as runners-up alongside Eastenders favourite Molly Rainford who was partnered with Carlos Gu and TV presenter Helen Skelton and her partner Gorka Marquez.

Many will be tuning in to BBC One after 7pm to see if Vito can make it to the top with Corrie star Ellie. The pair have been the subject of romance rumours throughout the series, but earlier this week, Mail Online reported that Vito had said they had “so many things to think about” when asked about them.

He said: “We have so many things to think about, you know, and choreography, and lift up and down, left, right, diagonal. And after we finish, we have the time to eat fast. We nap a little bit because we need to take the energy to continue. After we go home, we make sure we go to sleep the next day we have to go again…

“So we really are so focused on all this beautiful experience. We just had a very great connection, a 50/50 partnership since the beginning.”

The Strictly final airs on BBC One from 7pm on Saturday, December 16.
