This weekend sees the “Strictly Come Dancing” Halloween Spectacular. Tomorrow night the 11 remaining couples will don ghoulish and ghostly costumes, and take to the dancefloor with an array of, ahem, devilishly daring ballroom and Latin routines.

Robbie Savage will be given a “make-under” by Ola before they dance the paso doble to Michael Jackson’s “Bad”.  Robbie’s glamorous locks will be curled in tribute to Michael Jackson.

Jason and Kristina will be dancing to a quickstep to “Bewitched” by Steve Lawrence, while Lulu has taken a leaf out of Widdy’s book and will be make a grand entrance on set for her paso by flying in on a high wire; she will be dancing with Brendan to ACDC’s “Highway To Hell”.

The Halloween Spectacular will air at 6.30pm on BBC1 on Saturday, October 29, with the results show following on Sunday, October 30 at 7.25.
