Following weeks of rehearsals 11 couples are limbering up to go head-to-head in tonight’s Dancing Strictly final in aid of North London Hospice.

With the help of professional dance instructors the contestants have rehearsed a ballroom routine to perform in front of a live audience at Millfield Theatre.

Sponsored by the Times Series, the event aims to find a king and queen of the dance floor – as well as raise thousands of pounds for the hospice which supports people with life limiting illnesses.

From the cha cha cha to the foxtrot, the couples will be giving it their all to be crowned tonight’s winners.
