Strictly Come Dancing

Halloween Special

Series 15 - Episode 11 Halloween Special



The sight of Ed Balls dressed as a mad scientist and doing a cha-cha-cha that “wasn’t super and wasn’t natural” was unforgettable. But which members of the class of 2017 will throw themselves into the spirit of Halloween so enthusiastically?

The show traditionally goes all out with its spooky costumes (a bonus for those dancers who prefer to give slightly comedic performances) and dry ice (a godsend to those celebrities who tend to fluff their steps). But at this point in the competition we also usually see a dark horse emerging to challenge those who’ve commandeered the top of the leaderboard. Will that happen this year, too?


Following Brian Conley and his professional partner Amy Dowden's elimination last Sunday, 11 couples remain to participate in the show's traditional Halloween special. Entering the sixth weekend of the contest, judges Shirley Ballas, Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood will be looking for the pro-celebrity duos to deliver suitably spooky performances if they are to earn the highest scores and boost their chances of avoiding the dance-off on Sunday. Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman present.
