Think About Things was originally chosen as the Iceland’s track to compete in this year’s Eurovision, but the contest was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However the song became a viral hit and sparked a slew of TikTok challenges, and had been tipped as one of the favourites to win should the contest have taken place. 

Already the BBC favourite has seen its highest ratings in three years, after finally making it to screens after months of uncertainly sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Viewing figures averaged at 8.6 million and it is the show’s highest ratings since 2017.

This year’s couples have formed their own separate ‘bubbles’ to allow them to train and perform, and are being regularly tested to avoid a virus outbreak during filming.

The show will continue to have a live audience, though members of the public will be seated in their separate households or ‘bubbles’ and will wear a mask throughout filming. 

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday at 7:25pm on BBC One.
