BBC's Strictly Come Dancing is in full swing for its 2023 edition.

The annual celebrity dancing competition show has seen the original 15 contestants down to seven with more set to be sent off the dance floor ahead of the grand final.

With a chance of winning the coveted Strictly Come Dancing Glitterball Trophy, the competition is only getting tougher as the dancers become more impressive week after week.

2023 Strictly has seen twists and shocks, with TV legend Les Dennis becoming the first celebrity to be eliminated, whilst Sherlock actress Amanda Abbington left the show over a rumoured feud with her professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice.

Now that Strictly only has a few weeks left, find out when the final will be taking place in 2023.

When is the Strictly Come Dancing 2023 final?

This year the Strictly Come Dancing final will take place on Saturday, December 16.

Although we are not yet sure who will be in the final of Strictly, you can expect all the glam, glitz and more.

As judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke give their scores and the public chooses a winner.

In 2022, wildlife photography and Countryfile star, Hamza Yassin and his dancer partner Jowita Przystał took home the trophy.
