'EastEnders' actress Maisie Smith will perform samba and quickstep routines for the 'Strictly Come Dancing' final

Maisie Smith will perform samba and quickstep routines in a bid for 'Strictly Come Dancing' glory this weekend.

The 19-year-old actress topped the 'Strictly' leaderboard last weekend, wowing the judges with her performance alongside pro partner Gorka Marquez in the semi-finals, and she's now preparing a samba to 'Conga' by Gloria Estefan, and a quickstep to the sound of 'When You're Smiling' by Andy Williams on this Saturday's (19.12.20) finale.

The duo are also set for a showdance to Idina Menzel's 'We Need A Little Christmas'.

Elsewhere, comedian Bill Bailey – who has been one of the surprise packages of this year's series – is preparing for a quickstep to Bobby Darin's 'Talk To The Animals', and a showdance to 'The Show Must Go On' by Queen.

Bill, 55, and his partner Oti Mabuse are also working on a couple’s choice routine to 'Rapper’s Delight' by The Sugarhill Gang.

Meanwhile, HRVY and his partner Janette Manrara are to perform a jive routine to 'Faith' by Stevie Wonder, and an American smooth to 'One', the track from the musical 'A Chorus Line'.

The couple – who were considered to be one of the pre-series favourites – are also working on a showdance, which they'll perform to Brittany Murphy's 'Boogie Wonderland'.

Jamie Laing and his professional partner Karen Hauer are preparing for a Charleston to 'Zero To Hero' and a showdance to Taron Egerton's 'I’m Still Standing'.

The TV star – who was forced to withdraw from last year's series due to injury – is also working on a couple’s choice routine to 'Gonna Make You Sweat' by C+C Music Factory.

The final – which airs on BBC One this Saturday at 6pm – will include music from Robbie Williams, and the 2020 cast of celebrities will all return to the ballroom for one last time.
