Is Strictly Come Dancing on tonight?
There is some bittersweet news for Strictly Come Dancing fans.
Sadly, there will be no Sunday evening instalment of Strictly Come Dancing tonight (Sunday, October 25).
On Sunday evenings, the Strictly result show airs, where the bottom two from the Saturday evening are revealed.
The two couples with the lowest votes then perform their routines once again for the judges, who ultimately have the final say on who will be staying in the competition and who will be leaving.

The bottom two is decided by the judges’ leaderboard scores and the public vote combined.
As it is is Week One of the competition, there is no public vote and therefore, there is no Sunday night instalment of Strictly Come Dancing.
This follows Strictly tradition, with the Sunday results shows beginning in Week Two.
Sadly, this means one couple will be leaving the competition next Sunday evening (November 1).
Strictly judge, Bruno Tonioli who missed the first live show due to coronavirus travelling restrictions will join the show every Sunday for the results, so he can cast his vote via video link,
The public will be able to vote from next Saturday, with two performances to base their judgement on.
The judges’ scores will be carried over from Week One and combined with next week’s results to determine the leaderboard scores.
In Week One, singer HRVY and his partner Janette Manrara found themselves at the top of the leaderboard.
