Strictly Come Dancing contestants warm up for Blackpool show


The Strictly Come Dancing contestants have arrived at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom clad in bobble hats, woollen jackets and comfy scarves.

Wrapped up to brave the seaside breeze, the contestants will soon be warming up for the dance floor.

The trip to Blackpool is a Strictly tradition and often marks a turning point in the competition, as the contestants show off their improvement since the beginning of the series. 

The show will start at 6.50pm on BBC One on Saturday and will open with the dancers performing an Upstairs, Downstairs-themed Lindy Hop routine.

Take That are set to perform on Sunday's results show, which airs at 7.15pm on BBC One.
