Donny Osmond guest judges Strictly Come Dancing
Saturday, October 11, 6.30pm, BBC1
We're also excited to confirm that none other than Donny Osmond will be a guest judge on this week's Strictly! What will he make of Tim, Thom and Simon? We do hope he's kind to Judy and Jennifer, who have weathered very nervous starts to the series but are keeping calm and carrying on.
Whatever happens, they'd better be ready. Donny says, 'I know what it's like to hold that trophy and it's worth all the blood, sweat and tears... the contestants are really going to have to give me their all.'
Psst... We also hear that Donny may well be performing on the night. So we'll be timing our tea breaks carefully!
