Strictly Come Dancing is gearing up for Musicals Week this weekend – and we now know which songs and dances the remaining seven couples will be tackling.

Of course, the musicals special is a time-honoured Strictly tradition, and this year's numbers span from old school greats such as Mary Poppins to modern classics such as Matilda.

First up are AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington, who will do the Waltz to 'Edelweiss' from The Sound of Music, while Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice (who wowed last weekend with their silent dance) will Quickstep to 'Love Is An Open Door' from Frozen.

Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin will do a Couple's Choice to 'Revolting Children' from Matilda, while Tom Fletcher and Amy Dowden will also be taking on a Couple's Choice, this time to 'On My Own' from Les Misérables.

Meanwhile, Dan Walker and Nadia Bychkova will be dancing a Charleston to 'Good Morning' from Singin' in the Rain, and John Whaite and Johannes Radebe will do the Viennese Waltz to 'Chim Chim Cher-ee' from Mary Poppins.

Finally, Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu will be tackling the Jive to Footloose's iconic titular number.

Last weekend saw fans say goodbye to Sara Davies and Aljaž Škorjanec after they lost the dance off against Tilly and Nikita.

Meanwhile, judge Craig Revel Horwood is set to sit out this weekend's episode after testing positive for COVID-19.

Strictly Come Dancing 2021 airs on Saturday nights on BBC One, with results shows every Sunday. Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
