Halloween Week 2017 was unforgettable. All those dramatic entrances! The costumes! The dances!
Debbie McGee topped the leaderboard for week six with an amazing 39 points, closely followed by Aston Merrygold. Down at the bottom you have Simon Rimmer with 16 and Susan Calman also in the danger zone with 18 points. But who will be going home after Sunday’s results show?
Let’s take a look back at the Halloween moments that will haunt us for years to come…
1. Those A-MA-ZING costumes
Seriously, how fantastic did everybody look? The costume and make-up departments really outdid themselves for Halloween Week 2017. Jonnie Peacock totally looked the part as a pirate, and Joe McFadden really got into the whole spider look. It was (sorry) spooktacular.
And then the judges! Shirley Ballas was magnificent as Cruella De Vil, and Craig Revel Horwood didn’t look half bad as the Joker – even if he failed to crack a smile.
Sure, maybe the judges thought it “lacked grace” – but Susan Calman’s Game of Thrones Foxtrot to the tune of Killer Queen was really a performance to remember. The Scottish comedian is clearly having the absolute time of her life.
And she descended onto the dance floor on the back of a giant dragon while dressed as Daenerys Targaryen, so what more could you want?
5. Aston and Janette got “innovative” with the Paso Doble
They’ve been dancing around it for a while, but Aston Merrygold and Janette Manrara finally scored their first 10 with a Paso Doble to Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit.
“That was a Paso Doble that brought the dead back to life… you married tradition to innovation,” Bruno declared. Craig pointed out that it contained all the things a Paso should NOT contain, but added: “I tell you what, I am so glad. That was amazing.”
“You owned this dance,” Darcey added. 38!
