How to watch Strictly Come Dancing Final 2022: preview
This year has seen return of Strictly Come Dancing at its full, sequined best. Live audiences have filled the seats, fellow contestants have brush shoulders with one another, and we returned to the famous Blackpool Ballroom. With just one whisper of Kim Marsh testing positive for Covid, Tess and Claudia have brought us home to the comforts of wintry Saturday night television. Now down to our final four couples, find out how to watch Strictly Come Dancing: The Final 2022 online live and see who will raise the Strictly Glitter Ball.
Three dances apiece remain between our final four couples and the coveted Glitter Ball. Fleur and Veto, Helen and Gorka, Molly and Carlos, and Hamza and Jowita will each perform a dance chosen by the judges, their favourite dance of the season, and an explosive Showdance.
Fleur and Vito are the only couple to score a perfect 40 for their Couple's Choice to a Destiny's Child megamix, which they've chosen to perform again in tonight's final.
Still, there have been plenty of 10-score paddles elsewhere for our other finalists. Wildlife filmmaker Hamza has scored 39 for both his Charleston and Salsa. Tonight will see the return of his Salsa to the song 'Ecuador', as well as his Couple's Choice with Jowita which takes inspiration from Afrobeats and his heritage.
Helen and Gorka are the other couple bringing back their Couple's Choice from Musical Week, while Children's TV presenter Molly Rainford and her partner Carlos Gu have chosen to bring their sensual Rumba back to the Strictly ballroom.
