Lily for Strictly; Laila on Standby; Dancing Round the World

Lily Allen will perform 'Not Fair’ - the cut version presumably (or mine!) - on Strictly Come Dancing tomorrow night, accompanied by the professional dancers Matthew Cutler and Aliona Vilani. The mind boggles! Are they going to be barn dancing? A group hoe-down? Lily, who is currently on tour, is a huge Strictly fan and really looking forward to performing on the show.

It will be an action-packed show as world-renowned ballerina and Strictly guest judge Darcey Bussell will perform a surprise dance with pro dancer Ian Waite. The cast of hit musical Hairspray will also perform ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’.

It promises to be a thrilling semi-final, as there will also be no Dance-Off between the lowest-scoring two couples. After all the couples have danced, the judges' points and the public's votes will be added together. The couple with the lowest combined score will leave the competition. If there's a tie, the two couples with the highest audience vote will be saved.

Apparently Laila and Anton have been put on standby in case Ali's foot prevents her from dancing. "We have contingency plans" said a BBC man. So why not do the same when Jade went out then? Huh? Huh? Phil in for longer, a three couple final. At least hopefully they'll remember this idea if it happens again next year.

Strictly Come Dancing is available on BBC One and BBC HD, show times 6.45pm and 9.30pm. Don't forget you can get all the up-to-date gossip on Strictly Come Dancing’s sister show It Takes Two, weekdays at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
