Fans across the country will be excited to hear that Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas special will be returning this year.

For many, the festive season would not be complete without this show with millions tuning in to watch the glamorous spectacle on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

This seasonal edition of the programme will see six (currently unnamed) celebrities compete for the judges' score and to be named Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Champion 2023.

The episode will air on Christmas Day but the exact BBC scheduling of this is currently unknown with recording set to take place on Tuesday, December 5.

While the details around times and who will be taking part are not yet known, ticket information for the Strictly Come Dancing special is out now.

How to get tickets to Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas special 2023

Those eager for the chance to attend the live Christmas special should head on over to the BBC website where they can enter a prize draw for the chance to watch the show in person.

However, they should be quick as this draw is only open for a limited time.

The draw will close on Tuesday, November 14 after 10 pm, meaning there are only a few short days left to get involved.

There also are ticket limitations in place with only one pair of tickets available per person.

These tickets cannot be transferred to someone else with only the named ticket holder and their named guest able to use them.

Rickie Haywood-Williams, Larry Lamb, Rosie Ramsey, George Webster, Nicola Roberts and Alexandra Mardell were among the celebrities who took part in the Christmas special last year.

Coronation Street actress Alexandra Mardell won the show and was named Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas Champion in 2022.
