Taylor explains all the rules of the dance marathon just before it starts – important information for the episode ahead.
The marathon starts at 6 am on Saturday, and finishes 24 hours later at 6 am on Sunday.
Any couple without a number will be disqualified.
All couples must be touching at all times.
All couples must remain moving at all times.
The only time couples may stop touching or moving is when Taylor blows an air horn, which allows for a ten-minute rest, snack, drink, bathroom break etc period.
In case of emergency, a contestant may use their yellow card to leave the floor for ten minutes. Their partner must remain on the floor and keep moving throughout this emergency break.
First aid is available at Miss Patty’s.
If you feel unwell or dizzy etc, move to the side so that your medical episode does not impede other dancers.
You can see on the scoreboard behind Taylor that 156 couples signed up for the marathon. That sounds pretty successful!
