Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Ed Balls breaks Craig Revel Horwood with Halloween routine


Ed Balls was a stand out again on Strictly Come Dancing 2016 tonight.

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

But all most us could think about was Ed Balls' spookily good Cha Cha.

Well, good for Ed, of course.

Ed and his pro partner Katya Jones performed their latest routine to the Hansel Martinez version of 'Love Potion No. 9’

The judges - as always - had plenty to say to the politician.

Bruno Tonioli reacted: "Toxic! Additive! Horribly fabulous! You went for those hip trusts like a jackhammer! I have to say it was a triumph!"

A giggling Craig Revel Horwood could barely speak as he spluttered: "That bottom of yours was moving like a... I've never seen anything so bizarre..."

Len Goodman added: "It wasn't super and it wasn't all that natural but it was so much fun. Lots and lots of Cha Cha content. You kept right on time, your best dance!"

And Darcey Bussell concluded: "I'm so pleased you are still here. I might be mad but I absolutely love that. You were on time, the attitude, the confidence, you delivered quite a lot of cha cha, actually."

The pair left with a total of 26 marks, their best to date and enough to boost them off from bottom of the scoreboard.

But will it be enough to avoid the dreaded dance off once again 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.
