Christmas crooner Michael Buble is set to delight viewers on Saturday night's Strictly Come Dancing final, and fans have been treated to a sneaky glimpse of him in rehearsals. Professional dancer Janette Manrara shared a video on Twitter with her husband Aljaz Skorjanec as they mess around with Michael before the evening show, and captioned it: "Oh yes..... this is happening tonight!!"! In the video, Michael joined Janette and Aljaz, saying: "We're rehearsing together, we're a team. I'm tired just watching you guys, honestly, I think I'd have a heart attack if I danced with you. We'll kill it tonight" This pretty much confirmed that Michael will be sticking to singing on the night, rather than attempt dancing!
