Watching the Strictly Come Dancing stars making their way down the stairs on Halloween week is always exciting because of the amazing makeup and costume on display. This year they have really gone to town again with a nice mix of scary, spooky and silly outfits. Something for everyone.
After the introductions and the judges had taken their seats, it was time for the Strictly Show to begin. The first couple to cut a rug on the dancefloor in full Halloween costume was John and Johannes. Of all the Strictly Come Dancing Contestants in this series, John and Johannes have arguably been the most consistent, scoring high marks week on week.
The all-male couple dressed as werewolves danced the quickstep. Again another excellent performance which the judges loved. Head judge Shirley scored the dance 9 points, while the other three judges scored the pair 8 points each bringing their total to a very strong 33 points.
AJ Odudu dressed as Medusa and Kai Widdrington had a tough act to follow, not to mention all the rumours surrounding their pairing up, but that didn't phase the couple. The pair hit what was almost a home run for their Vienesse Waltz. They scored 37 points with a perfect 10 from Motsi Mabuse.
Dan Walker is probably the most middle of the road contestant in this series of the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 cast but he is putting in the work and improving each week. Having one of the most professional Strictly Come Dancing 2021 professionals, Nadiya Bychkova as his partner is clearly helping the BBC presenter go from strength to strength. This week however was a bit challenging dressed as a lobster and doing the Jive. The pair only managed 27 points.
CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu danced the Pasodoble to the theme tune of War of the Worlds. Another solid showing from the couple and they banked a very encouraging 33 points.
The Strictly Come Dancing 2021 Judges have been handing out high scores like candy at Halloween so far but all that was about to change when Dragons' Den Sara Davies and professional partner Aljaž Skorjanec took to the ballroom floor for their couple's choice routine. It didn't go down well with the judges, who only managed to score the couple 23 points, which puts them firmly in the bottom spot of the leaderboard, where they will remain for the rest of the evening.
We're now halfway through the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 Lineup and the best was yet to come. Step forward Ice Queen Rose Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice dancing the Tango. Giovanni has topped the leaderboard several times on Halloween week - he's the master of menacing routines. The pair literally cast a spell on the judges which scored them a perfect 40 points. Never in the history of Strictly Come Dancing has there been a perfect score so early on in the competition.
Cruel judge Craig who handed out his first 10 paddle of the competition asked Rose how to sign 'You Smashed it!'
That act was an impossible one to follow but the rest of the contestants but chilly Tilly put in a great effort dancing a Cha Cha with partner Nikita Kuzmin dressed as Frankenstein. They scored a very impressive 35 points.
Adam and Katya's ghostly Vienesse Waltz only managed 29 points, while Judi danced her Cha Cha to Get Physical but only managed 25 points.
Last to dance was Tom Fletcher dancing a devilish tango to the song Highway to Hell. He scored 29 points.

The moment of truth again for the Strictly Come Dancing stars and the two couples with the lowest votes that will have to dance for a place in week 7 were Tom and Amy and Judi and Graziano.
Both couples gave it their all, alas Judi who was still recovering from Covid-19 fell short in the dance off and the judges decided to save Tom and Amy.
