Come Dancing results shifted to Sunday slot
The hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing is to move its results programme to a new Sunday night slot.
In order to allow more behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and the all-important dancing, the special show will be lengthened to 45 minutes with viewers still set to find out who will leave the contest at the end.
A spokesman for the show said that the move made sense as it met “a strong appetite for good entertaining family viewing on Sunday evenings”.
As before, this year’s contest will be hosted by veteran broadcaster Bruce Forsyth alongside former model Tess Daly.
Among the contestants set to be paired up with professional dancers are football legend John Barnes, model Kelly Brook and the actress Stephanie Beacham.
The producers have also confirmed that the viewers’ decision on the performances will be final with all proceeds from the calls to the show being donated to Children in Need.
