And this weekend was no different, as the celebs took centre stage for a movie-inspired episode that saw the A-listers impress viewers with some thrilling choreography and movie moment costumes.

EastEnders star Maisie Smith, 19, ditched her signature fiery locks for a Disney look, as she sported a perfectly styled blonde wig in homage to Frozen’s Elsa.
Luckily for us, Strictly hair stylist, Anna Winterburn, took to Instagram after the show to reveal the vast number of steps that went into creating Maisie’s Elsa wig – and it’s super impressive.
In a series of snaps, Anna reveals exactly how the wig was created, and it involves a weighty wig, strategically placed sectioning clips, rollers for volume, and, we presume, a whole lot of hairspray.

“She looks amazing. You did an incredible job on her,” another wrote.
