When is the Strictly Come Dancing final?

Although the BBC has not confirmed if the final will be affected, it's looking likely the Strictly Come Dancing finale will take place on Saturday 17 December – one week after the semi-finals. As with most years, the final comes just shortly before Christmas Day. We'll keep you posted if that changes.

Sad as we'll be that it's over, fans can look forward to a festive special that will likely air on Christmas Day, if the BBC competition follows previous years' schedules.
