With Strictly Come Dancing taking a different approach to things this year due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, questions have been raised over whether the traditional Christmas special will happen.
Well, the BBC One show has revealed that there will indeed be a special airing over the festive period called Strictly: The Christmas Countdown, which will be different from the usual one-off competition episode we're used to.
The show will reveal Strictly's 25 most memorable dances as voted for by viewers, and will be presented by regular hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly – with the judges and professional dancers involved, too.
On top of that, Strictly have announced a fourth "Best Of" special to air alongside its previously announced Movies, Blackpool and Musicals ones.
This episode will focus on some of the greatest moments from Strictly's Finals as we look back at the high emotions and the most memorable routines. The special will also include a tribute to late 2014 winner Caroline Flack.
Tess and Claudia recently reunited for "socially distanced" filming on the specials, which are due to air in September.
Sharing a series of photos with her co-host, Tess, wrote on Instagram: "Dreamy being reunited with @claudiawinkle today for some (socially distanced) filming for our ‘Best Of’ Strictly shows- on tv in September".
The main series, which has been pushed back from its traditional start date, will follow afterwards in October for a shorter run than usual due to the pandemic.
Strictly Come Dancing will return for an all-new series later this year on BBC One.
