From ballroom gowns to leotards, Strictly Come Dancing requires a lot from the wardrobe department. 

Before the outfits are sold on via specialist website, celebs such as Alexandra Burke and Gemma Atkinson have to whizz around the dance floor in them. 

But as the 2017 series has proved, sometimes the extravagant outfit have got in the way of the professional dancers carefully choreographed dances. 

Ahead of the Strictly final, here are three times it’s happened on the BBC One show. 

Microphone malfunction

Mollie King has looked fabulous throughout the entire series of Strictly, and has warn many impressive outfits. 

But speaking to the Daily Star Online, the singer confessed she’s had plenty of wardrobe malfunctions on the show, explaining how her microphone has repeatedly got in the way.

AJ Pritchard’s dance partner said: “I’ve had many. Times where the mic pack has flown out the back of my dress, and I’m trying to keep it together and do a bit of a shimmy whilst grabbing the microphone off the floor.

“There’ve been quite a few wardrobe malfunctions where you’ve had to hold yourself together in places you weren’t quite expecting.”

Shoe dramas

Holby City star Chizzy Akudolu was praised by viewers when she recovered from this awkward malfunction. 

Taking on the cha cha with Strictly favourite Pasha, the actress’s gorgeous figure-hugging blue dress got caught in her high heels.

After she almost tripped up due to the unfortunate error, Chizzy managed to keep up the routine and impress both the judges and viewers at home.

For one of the weeks, former Hollyoaks star Gemma and her dance partner Aljaž Škorjane took on a Disney classic. 

As they danced along to the Bear Necessities from 1968 film The Jungle Book, the duo naturally dressed up in fluffy bear attire. 

But it proved more of a hindrance as Aljaž fake animal ears flung off mid performance. Ever the professional, he kept on going with the Charleston for movie week, bringing in a whopping 31 points.
