That’s because the results show, which regularly runs for 40 minutes, will be cut to 30 mins as a result of the World Cup.

BBC One will air the weekly dance off between 6pm and 6.30pm on November 27.

This is to make way for football match between Spain and Germany which kicks off at 1pm.

The tournament has been creating havoc with the schedules, with Strictly set to hop around timeslots over the coming weeks.

It comes as the highly anticipated musicals episode will air on Friday December 2nd instead of Saturday December 3rd.

The usual results show will air on December 3rd instead, one night early.

HOAR revealed months ago that Strictly Come Dancing brought forward its start date to avoid as many World Cup clashes as possible.

Of course the World Cup normally airs in the Summer but the tournament date was moved due to Qatar’s intense summer sun.

It’s not just Strictly though that has been affected by sport taking up hours of viewing time.

In daytime, This Morning, Lorraine and Loose Women have all fallen off the air over consecutive days as the ITV schedule was taken up by the boys in Qatar.
