Have you got that frightening feeling?

Today’s not a regular day here at Strictly HQ. Our office has a spooky air about it and our corridors are filled with tombstones and zombies, all (I hope) in preparation for tomorrow’s show.

Earlier this morning, we caught up with our couples to find out if they’ve got a frightening feeling about tomorrow’s show when Strictly Does Halloween.

Who’s feeling nervous? Who’s looking forward to shocking the Judges? And who just wants to hide under the sheets?

    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd get things kicked off this Friday the weekend expectation has to be Micheal and Nataie's quickstep on paper it seems and sounds like a great routine ballroom dance Sammy Davis Jr music choice That Old Black Magic and full use of the Dave Arch orchestra and singers at their disposal what could go wrong if they make a total shambles out of it like last week to much emphasis on props and not enough on the dance and this couple really need to step it up and redeem themselves if they stand any chance of progressing.

    The comedy factor and my se cond favourite dance of the weekend would have to be Lisa and Robin's charleston to Witch Doctor I you tubed it and it is an absolute funny music choice which will suit Lisa's sparkly and fun personality.

    My worries for this weekend have to be with the following couples.

    Fern and Artem
    Dani and Vincent
    Sid and Ola
    Nicky and Karen

    Fern and Artem simply because the music choice and dance just doesn't suit Fern because in all honesty after her Charleston just my opinion I don't think Fern doesn't do dominance and wild which this music and dance requires.

    Dani and Vincent, Sid and Ola and Nicky and Karen I would rate the same their music choices of Ghostbusters, Weird Science and the Scooby Doo theme tune just come across as way to cheesy for me and for me there will be to much messing about as Len puts it and not enough dance.

    Got to go now just my views

    Excuse the pun but I think this week is going to be a THRILLER!! I am most excited to see Lisa and Robin ... I love the song choice and think it matches their energy perfectly!!
    However I am still behind my man Nicky and hope he can put on an SPOOKTACULAR performance like last week!!

    In regards to Craig frightening someone, I think its the other way round!! The standard is soo high this year I THINK CRAIG IS IN FOR A FRIGHT!! Alot of the partners want to show him what they've got so watch out ... THEY MAY BE BEHIND YOU!! AH HA HA HA HAAAA!!

    I shall have my pillow ready ... have a phobia of mask and painted faces and of all the weeks to be watching it alone its Halloween week!!

    This weekend could be a hooooot. (See what I did there), but I hope the couples don't get too spooky and overtaken by props and long intros.

    I think Lisa and Robin will pull it out of the bag again. She's got such good musicality and timing despite the speed and she can do characterisation in spades, and always looks as if she's enjoying herself rather than some of the others who look as if they need the loo.

    Victoria is looking better and better. Her problem is performance on the night. I really hope she pulls it off today.

    Denise and James - I really get a bit miffed when bloggers say Denise shouldn't be there because she's a professional. Lots of contestants have had some dance experience but not necessarily any ballroom. If you banned them all you'd just have TV presenters participating and that would be boring. I think she'll be great at the cha cha and I wish Denise all the best.

    Fern and Artem - looking forward to their AS. She too can do the footwork and the timing, but let's hope the performance is more exciting than the last one.

    Sid and Ola - difficulty this week is that he's had to change partners - not easy for a nervous celeb. He could be in danger and he admits he finds keeping in time difficult.

    Michael and Natalie. Natalie is a quickstep queen. Let's hope that Michael will be her King, but I have my doubts.
