Strictly Come Dancing’s Halloween special will spook viewers tonight (Saturday), with EastEnders star Jake Wood set to perform the Paso Doble.

Get ready for the fright of your life as co-hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, and Strictly’s 11 remaining couples hit the dance floor for a spooktacular ballroom battle.

Tonight’s Week 6 programme, which starts at 6.30pm on BBC One, is 2014’s Halloween special.

Twinkle-toed Tewin-based talent Jake and professional dance partner Janette Manrara will be performing the paso doble to Black Betty by Ram Jam on tonight’s show.

They were only fifth on the leaderboard last week with his quickstep, as Pixie Lott scored the most points with the judges.
