The scares came thick and fast last night during the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 Halloween special.
Head Judge Shirley Ballas was in a frightening mood as she delivered her harsh critique to the couples. She also had some mic issues so some of her comments went unheard.
Debbie McGee and Giovanni Pernice topped the leaderboard following their spectacular Charleston and they almost got the first 40 of the series. Hot on their heels was Aston Merrygold with his partner Janette Manrara who wowed the judges with their contemporary twist on the Paso Doble.
Languishing at the bottom of the leaderboard was Simon Rimmer and his partner Karen Clifton. We think they have a good chance of finding themselves in the dance off again tonight.
The leaderboard for the evening was:
Debbie McGee & Giovanni Pernice – 39
Aston Merrygold & Janette Manrara – 38
Alexandra Burke & Gorka Marquez – 35
Joe McFadden & Katya Jones – 32
Gemma Atkinson & Aljaž Škorjanec – 30
Mollie King & AJ Pritchard – 27
Davood Ghadami & Nadiya Bychkova – 25
Ruth Langsford & Anton Du Beke – 22
Jonnie Peacock & Oti Mabuse – 20
Susan Calman & Kevin Clifton – 18
Simon Rimmer & Karen Clifton – 16
