The Strictly Come Dancing Final may have aired last week, but Strictly fans don’t have to say goodbye to the beloved TV dancing competition just yet. That’s right, the show’s annual Christmas Special is once again coming to BBC One on Christmas Day. Now isn’t that just the best gift?!
Last week’s Final saw Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystał crowned Strictly 2022 champions, defeating Helen Skelton and Gorka Marquez, Molly Rainford and Carlos Gu, and Fleur East and Vito Coppola in what was an incredible (and emotional) finale for the dancing competition – in which all couples brought their very best.
As always, the Strictly Christmas Special will see a host of new celebrities take to the Elstree dancefloor, and on that line-up are Rosie Ramsey, Rickie Haywood-Williams, Alexandra Mardell, Larry Lamb, Nicola Roberts, and George Webster.
If you’re excited to tune into the Strictly Christmas Special, here’s when you can watch it.
What time is the Strictly Christmas Special 2022 on tonight?
The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special airs on BBC One on Sunday, December 25 (Christmas Day), at 5:10 p.m. GMT in the United Kingdom. It will run for an hour and 15 minutes, as the six couples perform one routine each for judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton DuBeke, and Head Judge Shirley Ballas.
BBC One always has a special Christmas line-up every year and the Strictly Xmas Special is always an integral part of it.
This year, that schedule will feature the King’s Speech, Aladdin, Strictly, Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel, Ghosts, Call The Midwife and, of course, the big Christmas Special of EastEnders – which has been a staple of Christmas Day at the BBC for decades.
