Strictly Come Dancing 2020 LIVE: What time does it start tonight on BBC?

STRICTLY Come Dancing is back for its third week of Cha Chas and Paso Dobles on BBC One at 7.25pm tonight. 

It’s Movie Week for this Saturday’s instalment and without cinemas open, this will hopefully whisk viewers away to the silver screen for the first time in months.

    Speaking of the two young ones, we could, maybe, see a possible romance blossom between the pair.

    Speaking to The Sun this week, Maisie refused to rule out a romance after he called her “beautiful”.

    Quizzed about a possible relationship with the handsome pop star, real name Harvey Cantwell, she says: “Not right now. He is a beautiful-looking guy.

    “But I have only seen him for a couple of hours a week so I am still enjoying getting to know him.

    “I don’t know what would happen in the future, but for now we are getting along really well as friends.”

    HRVY, on the other hand, has been gushing about his pretty co-star over the past three weeks, describing her as “beautiful” and “lovely”.

    Well, well, well, did any of us expect that performance from Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse last weekend?

    While the weird CGI elephants still haunts my nightmares, his Quickstep was sensational – and the judges agreed too, giving him 24 points.

    He's a creative man, so I would never talk his dancing talents down, but this was a week after scoring only 15 points in his Cha-Cha-Cha.

    Bill could be the wildcard of the season – or he could be a punchline. We'll have to find out what funnyman does tonight with his Paso Doble.

    Olympic gold medal winner Nicola Adams knows what it takes to win – and judging by her first scores, she is a force to be reckoned with.

    The first same-sex pairing on the show put out an impressive Quickstep, which gained them 21 points.

    However, in week two she delivered an absolute knockout with her Street performance – giving her 24 extra points.

    Light on her feet with control of her body and the fitness to boot: this boxer won't go down without a fight.

    While the scores won't carry over from last week, they can give us a good idea of who we should look out for – and there are two people we definitely can't take our eyes off.

    The two youngest stars – Maisie Smith, 19, and HRVY, 21 – have absolutely dominated in the first two weeks.

    Maisie received a 24 for her Samba in week one, and stepped up for her Tango with an amazing 25 in week two.

    Meanwhile, HRVY got the same scores in reverse, gaining 25 for a Jive and Viennese Waltz himself into joint second with 24 points.

    But can raw youthful talent beat out good old fashioned experience? There is someone these two should be wary of…

    Good evening ladies and gentleman, we have just under one hour left until we get a glimpse of our stars on the silver… stage.

    There’s a real mix of dances and songs for the remaining contestants – who are down to 12 after former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith’s elimination last week.

    Going for a classic, boxer Nicola Adams and Katya Johns will be performing the Jive to Grease Lightning, while DJ Clara Amfo and Alijaz Skorjanec stick to the musical theme with a Tango to Moulin Rouge’s Lady Marmalade.

    Elsewhere, Disney reigns strong with a Charleston to Hercules’ Zero to Hero for Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer, as series favourite – and EastEnders star – Maisie Smith and Gorka Marquez perform the American Smooth to Frozen 2’s Into The Unknown.

    Popstar HRVY and Janette Manrara opted for Gnomeo and Juliet’s Don’t Go Breaking My Heart for their Cha Cha, while The Wanted’s Max George and Dianne Buswell continued down the animation path with a Couples’ Choice to The Simpsons Movie theme.

    Good Morning Britain star Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice are foxtrotting to Love You I Do from Dreamgirls, while reigning professional champ Oti Mabuse and her comedian partner Bill Bailey are taking on the Paso Doble to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

    That won’t be the only Paso Doble of the night – American Footballer Jason Bell and Luba Mushtuk will be performing it to John Williams’ Star Wars theme.

    Finally, actress Caroline Quentin and Johannes Radebe opted for the Couples’ Choice with Everything’s Coming Up Roses from Gypsey.

    While young ones HRVY and Maisie have strode into the lead with two weeks of impressive dancing, the twinkle-toed celebs still have everything to play for tonight.
