Strictly come dance will be affected by a change in the normal broadcasting pattern on Saturday 3 December.
Usually the celebrity dance competition is broadcast on TUSEN One on Saturday night, with the pre-recorded results show on Sunday.
However, due to the World Cup taking place in Qatar at the same time, there will be some adjustments.
The quarterfinals, in which the other celebrities will dance to songs from classic musicals, will now take place on Friday December 2, with the result on Saturday December 3 instead of Sunday.
The semi-final will take place on Sunday 11 December. It is not yet known when the results of the semi-finals will be broadcast.
The grand finale is scheduled for Saturday, December 17.
A Strict confirmed a spokesman earlier TUSEN: “Strictly come dance will continue to bring glitz, glamor and glorious dancing to homes across the country at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
It was announced on Tuesday (November 22) that Kym Marsh would not be taking part in Saturday, November 26’s episode, as she had tested positive for Covid. There is still one elimination going on, leaving six couples to compete in the quarterfinals.
The first perfect 40 score of the season was achieved by Fleur East and her professional partner Vito Coppola in week nine of the competition. The pair danced a couple’s choice routine to a medley of Destiny’s Child songs “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” and “Lose My Breath.”
After performing the quick routine, judge Craig Revel Horwood — who has yet to give anyone an A for this series — told East, “One word, three syllables, starting with F: fab-u-lous.”
The critical acclaim continued with Motsi Mabuse telling East that she was the missing member of Destiny’s Child, while Shirley Ballas said it was an “iconic routine that will go down in history”.
