Strictly Voting: How to vote on Strictly Come Dancing online and opening times.
Don’t miss out on your chance to cast your vote and save your favourite couple so they get to perform another week.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to vote on Strictly Come Dancing
Once all the couples have performed Saturday evening, the voting opens for approximately 25 minutes.
The results are revealed in the results show Sunday evening which is scheduled for What Time Is Strictly On?
The two couples who receive the least public votes combined with the judges scores will then go on to dance one last time in the dreaded dance-off.
Based on the dance-off alone, Shirley, Motsi, Craig and Anton will then choose which couple they would prefer to stay in the competition to dance another week. If the judges are split, head judge Shirley will have the casting vote.

When does Voting open for Strictly?
Voting on Strictly Come Dancing opens after all the contestants have performed, this is a few minutes before the end of the transmission of the Saturday live main show.
Voting usually stays open for approximately 25 minutes after the end of the main show. Before the programme ends, Tess or Caudia will clearly state when lines will close.
When the vote is open, it will appear at the top of the Strictly homepage. If you can’t see it, try refreshing the page.
Only votes received during that period will count. Calls made outside the announced voting times will not count and the caller will hear a message stating that the line is closed.
