Notes:

  • The Order column shows the slot the couple danced in the programme of their first dance

  • The Leaderboard column shows the ranking on the programme of their first dance

  1. The first celebrity was eliminated on week 2 after performing two dances

  2. The first celebrity was eliminated on week 1 after performing one dance

  3. Only the male celebrities dances on week 1 and only female celebrities dances on week 2, so the first male and female celebrity elimination show for this series

  4. All couples were split into two equal groups. All couples danced a ballroom routine on Friday and a latin routine on Saturday. The first couple were eliminated from the first group on Saturday, Week 1, and the second couple were eliminated from the second group on Saturday, Week 2.
