Both Catherine and Emma will take to the floor for their next performance on Saturday night, which will also see Alfonso Ribeiro replace Bruno Tonioli as a guest judge.

Last week the duo both impressed with their performance, with Catherine's Charleston scoring 32 points out of 40, and Emma's Viennese Waltz an impressive 35. 

After Karim Zeroual stormed the leaderboard last week with pro Amy Dowden, it remains to be seen who will wow the judges this week. 

Embattled: Shirley Ballas is also expected to appear on the panel, after revealing on Friday that had put herself on a drip following a 'tough week'

Shirley Ballas is also expected to appear on the panel, after revealing on Friday that had put herself on a drip following a 'tough week.'

The star posted an Instagram snap showing her relaxing in an armchair with a drip connected to her left arm, as she admitted recent days had taken their toll.

In the caption Shirley wrote: 'Very happy to receive this drip today to help me get well. Full of all sorts of things vitamin c magnesium b12 and the list goes on.

'Feeling under the weather today as a result of a tough week. So @revivuk will have me up and running by Saturday.' 

Shocking: This live show will be the first after viewers were outraged to see DJ Dev Griffin and pro Dianne Buswell eliminated from the show last week

The latest live show comes after last week's elimination sparked outrage and threats of a boycott by die-hard fans.

DJ Dev Griffin was booted off the show after losing the dance-off to Viscountess Emma Weymouth, despite consistently scoring high with the judges.

After their exit angry viewers took to social media to claim that they were unable to vote for Dev and Dianne as their designated 'phone line wouldn't accept calls.' 

Fans have also blamed judges Craig, Motsi Mabuse, Bruno Tonioli and Shirley Ballas for their departure as they landed in the bottom two against Emma and pro Aljaž Škorjanec, with Shirley even receiving death threats as a result of their verdict.

On their exit, Craig told The Mirror: 'They can kick off as much as they like. How much do they know about the cha cha cha? Nothing darling.' 

'Dev was the worst dancer on the night but if he had done his other routines then he may have been successful going through.'

Australian beauty Dianne recently admitted she was 'upset' on Dev's behalf, particularly because she was so 'proud' of his efforts in the ballroom, which placed him among the favourites. 

Speaking to host Rylan Clark-Neal on It Takes Two earlier this week, she said: 'I was in a lot of shock. I didn't think that Dev would be in the bottom two for a while, if at all.

'I think he did an amazing job on Saturday night... I'm really proud of him but I'm really upset that he was in the bottom two and that he ended up leaving.' 

Dev appeared to have already made peace with his departure from the show as he said: 'Every single week is so different, I don't think you can ever take your position from the previous week for granted...

'When I woke up that day, I didn't think I'd be in the bottom two, but I was,' adding that one of the things he's 'going to miss the most' is rehearsing new routines.
