It is the thirteenth and last week of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, but one of the four celebrity contestants hoping to win will find luck.

The lone remaining male celebrity, wildlife presenter Hamza, has been the bookmakers’ longtime favorite.

In the final, each celebrity will dance three times.

As usual, one will be selected by the judges, another will be their favorite dance from the series, and the final dance will be a display dance.

They include Helen’s jive to Janelle Monae’s Tightrope and Hamza’s show dance to Irving Berlin’s Let’s Face the Music and Dance.

Fleur will perform her couple’s choice dance to a Destiny’s Child megamix, while Molly will do her quickstep to Love On Top by Beyonce.

No professional dancers in this year’s final have previously won Strictly Come Dancing. Vito Coppola and Carlos Gu, Fleur and Molly’s respective partners, are both new to the show.

Jowita Przystal is partnered with Hamza for the first time since joining the competition in 2021, excluding her performance with Adrian Chiles in last year’s Christmas special.

Helen’s partner Gorka Marquez has previously reached the final but has never won.

In last week’s semi-final, actor Will Mellor and his partner Nancy Xu were eliminated, paving the way for the final four couples to advance.

This year Strictly has had some scheduling modifications due to the World Cup in Qatar, but Saturday’s program will begin at 19:05 GMT and go until 21:35 GMT as usual.

Molly Rainford recently turned 22 and is the youngest contender in this year’s competition. She originally rose to prominence as a child when she auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent as a vocalist and placed sixth in the final.

Currently, she is starring in the CBBC sitcom Nova Jones. In this Strictly series, Molly has been in the dreaded dance-off four times, yet she keeps coming back. Her breathtaking Paso Doble in the semifinal was awarded a score of 39 out of 40 points.

Fleur East, a singer and radio host has had her fair share of dance-off setbacks, but she has persevered and received great praise from the judges.

In honor of her Beyoncé-style couple’s choice dance in Blackpool, she and Vito prompted Craig Revel Horwood to pull out his 10-paddle for the first time this season, which was one of the series highlights. She achieved a perfect score of 40 out of 40.

Helen Skelton, a television personality, has quietly and doggedly advanced to the final.

Two weeks ago, when he only gave her a nine out of ten for her couple’s choice dance, Craig received the loudest booing of the season – and that’s saying something. Shirley Ballas, Anton du Beke, and Motsi Mabuse gave her performance in the style of Cabaret the highest honors.

Hamza Yassin, a wildlife cameraman, and broadcaster, is renowned for his daring lifts with Jowita.

His African-inspired couple’s choice of dance moved Motsi to tears last month (in a good way). Before he participated in the event, he had never taken formal dance training. He is currently the final man standing.

This series began in September with fifteen celebrities, including musician Matt Goss, actress Kym Marsh, and Paralympian Ellie Simmonds.

Marsh missed one week due to contracting Covid-19, while football player Tony Adams was forced to withdraw from a dance-off earlier in the season owing to injuries.

After Bruno Tonioli departed the show to focus on its American counterpart, Dancing with the Stars, Du Beke formally assumed Tonioli’s position on the panel of judges.
