Tonight the finalists of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing will perform beneath the glitterball for the last time.

Simon Webbe, Caroline Flack, Mark Wright and Frankie Bridge perform with three routines with their professional dance partners before the champion is announced at 8.50pm.

We will be rating their fancy footwork, choreography and bravery as the real judges collate their scores (will there be anything but nines and 10s on a night like this?) on our liveblog.

With previous bookies’ favourite Pixie Lott having lost the dance off against Blue bandmember Webbe last week, the competition is now wide open.

X Factor presenter Flack is the current favourite. But as Len Goodman and the other judges keep repeating the standard is higher than ever this year.

Who will lift the Glitterball trophy?
