Strictly start time: What time does Strictly Come Dancing start tonight?

BBC series Strictly Come Dancing enters Week Five as the competition heats up. The celebrity line-up has been busy training and honing their moves for the live show. Here’s everything you need to know about the show this week’s show.

Last week Strictly Come Dancing was engulfed in controversy after DJ Dev Griffin and his partner Dianne Buswell were sent home from the competition.

The pair landed themselves in the bottom two against Emma Weymouth and Aljaž Skorjanec.

Both couples put their best foot forward in the hopes of staying on the show.

However, Dev and Dianne were given marching orders by the judges despite getting 10s the week before.

Fans were left outraged after voting problems led many to feel the couple should have remained on the show.

Head judge Shirley Ballas later defended the decision, explaining on Strictly sister show It Takes Two: “This series is by far the best series I’ve ever seen for [skill] level.

“It makes it difficult for every week, somebody going home.

“You can only urge the audience, you must vote! I know they always think it’s down to the judges, but you have the final say at home. You can see, as David [James] got saved [last week].”

She added: “So, if you want your favourites to stay in, you have to vote!”
