Strictly Come Dancing judges Craig Revel Horwood and Shirley Ballas appeared to poke fun at themselves on Saturday night's Halloween special with their costumes.

The often brusque Revel Horwood sported a wide red smile with his costume as Batman villain The Joker, while Ballas opted for a Cruella de Vil outfit.

The new head judge has endured a clash with professional dancer Brendan Cole and an awkward encounter with Jonnie Peacock in her first series of the show, the Press Association reports.

Winkleman and Daly didn't dress up for the night

Meanwhile, Bruno Tonioli opted for a Beetlejuice-themed costume, while Darcey Bussell dressed as Little Red Riding Hood.

However, hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly shunned fancy dress during the show's Halloween special.
