STRICTLY fans may be disappointed to learn the show won’t air on Sunday December 4th.
Bosses shuffled the schedule around to make room for the World Cup fixtures.
The live quarter final will now take place on Friday December 2nd at 8pm.
Viewers will then learn who made it through the semi finals on Saturday December 3rd at the earlier time of 5.40pm.
The main show has been swapped from its regular Saturday slot because of the FIFA World Cup’s televised fixtures on the channel.
Following another successful dance Hamza Yassin is now a warm favourite to win the 2022 show, while Kym Marsh was forced to pull out this weekend due to Covid and will return for the live quarter final on Friday.
Some viewers claimed she has been given a “free pass” and one Strictly fan suggested: “I would rather they kept all couples in this week and had a double elimination the week after. Just to make it fair.”
Another remarked: “What would really be fair is no elimination this week and a double next week”
One more agreed: “This late in the game no, esp since she is at risk, they should just do a double next week
However, others argued she would have sailed through this week regardless, and one penned: “I think she would probably have made it through this week anyway- with the armour of a couples choice dance to a popular song & she seems to have a decent sized fan base as well judging for her poorer weeks after her shock dance off.”

Another said: “It’s it 100 per cent fair? Probably not. Can I think of a fairer way? No, but maybe people more clever than I could.”
Kym previously admitted how hard it can be juggling everything at the moment, telling The Sun: “Strictly has been the most brilliant experience already.
“I really am knackered and I’ve had some physio because I’m aching all over the place, but it’s worth it.”
Kym had even contemplated quitting after a devastating anxiety attack left her frozen with panic and unable to perform.
