Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Louise Redknapp becomes Harley Quinn in Halloween special


Louise Redknapp became Harley Quinn for Strictly Come Dancing 2016's Halloween special tonight.

It was Strictly Come Dancing's annual Halloween theme night this evening which meant epic costumes, brilliant make up and spooky routines.

First to perform were Louise and pro partner Kevin Clifton who became Harley Quinn and the Joker for their comic book themed routine.

The pair performed the Charleston to the Emeli Sande version of 'Crazy In Love' for the judges, who also dressed up for the occasion.

Before the dance, Kevin said he was hoping to bring out the crazy side of Louise but what did the panel make of it all?

Bruno Tonioli said: "Bang! Wow! Whallop! It was a Charleston as pop art. Unusual, daring, I wasn't expect that at all. I found it interesting. All those ideas put into that dance and done so well, wonderful."

Craig Revel Horwood said: "I think it was a little bit too controlled if I'm being honest but I have to commend you on the clean lines, and full of personality, well done."

Len Goodman said: "100%, so animated! It was a comic book Charleston. I thought the routine was dandy, you were a marvel and there was more fun than a beano."

And Darcey Bussell said: "A dazzling Charleston, you pulled out of all the stops tonight and it paid off, thank you!"

The pair left with a total of 35 marks, 8 from Craig and 9s from the rest of the judges to give them their highest score so far.

But will it be enough to avoid the dreaded dance off on Sunday night?

As always, one more celebrity will leave in the latest results show on Sunday, 30th October at 7.15pm on BBC One.
