Strictly star Danny Mac will again perform the samba which scored him a perfect 40 in a bid to take the crown in this weekend's final.

The Hollyoaks actor and partner Oti Mabuse became the first couple to be awarded full marks for a samba in the show's history in week 10.

Each of the three remaining contestants will dance three routines on Saturday night as they battle it out for the glitterball trophy.

They will perform their favourite dance, the judges' choice, and a spectacular show dance, in a bid to win the viewers' votes.

Mac and Mabuse's showdance will be to Adele's Set Fire To The Rain while BBC sports presenter Ore Oduba will perform to Jodi Benson's I Got Rhythm.

Oduba - who topped the scoreboard in last week's semi final - and partner Joanne Clifton will also dance a jive to Bruno Mars' hit Runaway Baby which scored them 39 points in week four.

Former singer Louise Redknapp and partner Kevin Clifton will dance their Argentine tango to Sexteto Mayor's Tanguera which scored them 39 in week seven.

The pair will also perform a showdance to One Moment In Time by Whitney Houston.

The judges' choice dances will be revealed during Saturday night's finale.

Fans will also be treated to group performances, musical moments and surprises as the series draws to a close.

:: Strictly Come Dancing - The Final will air on December 17 at 6.40pm on BBC1.
