Strictly's Blackpool week is finally here and the excitement is catching

Updated: 

If there's one thing that manages to even approach the excitement of the Strictly Come Dancing final, it's Blackpool week.

This is the point that all of those nervous celebrities were aiming for when they first set foot on the dancefloor all of those weeks ago, and now they've really made it.

Ed Balls, Judge Rinder, Danny Mac, Louise Redknapp, Claudia Fragapane, Greg Rutherford and Ore Oduba are the lucky seven who've danced their way to the Tower Ballroom, and we can't wait to see what they're going to pull out of the bag.

Fans of the BBC contest are every bit as excited as the celebrities taking part that Blackpool week is finally here.

All of the celebrities have done so well to make it to this point, but people still can't quite believe that one Mr Ed Balls is lining up to perform tonight.

However, if there's one thing people don't love about Blackpool, it's all of those extra dancers. Just let us see our celebs, people.
