We're getting excited about this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing performances after seeing which songs each of the couples will be dancing to during week five.

We can't WAIT to see what Judge Rinder and Ed Balls bring to the dance floor this week (hello Flintstones and dragon-slaying knight!), while we'll be wondering if Danny Mac finally gets a perfect ten after Ore Oduba earned the first ten of the series last week.

Can Ed Balls match his The Mask dance this week?!

Anastacia, meanwhile, has been rehearsing with Gorka Marquez after her pro partner Brendan Cole was hospitalised with a lung infection. He's being re-assessed by doctors on Friday to see whether he's able to perform this weekend.

The full dance and song list is:
