Spellbinding Strictly Come Dancing couple Gleb Savchenko and Anita Rani are spending hour after witching hour in the training room this week, preparing for Saturday’s Halloween special.

 

To get us in the ghoulish mood, the bewitching pair have done an exclusive TV Times photo shoot, for our current issue, out now.

 

Sadly we didn’t have enough space in the magazine for all of the spook-tacular pictures – so here, in a www.tvtimes.co.uk exclusive, are a few extras just for yooooooo.



Keeeeeeep frightening!

 



 

Gleb and Anita meet TV Times writer Emma, before the transformation begins, and the Strictly stars get into position for their spooky shoot.……

 

Gleb loved getting into character but Anita wasn’t quite so sure… oooo, now that’s a nasty scratch! 


 

Here, above and below, are previously unseen shots from the TV Times shoot. 

“I feel so lucky to be doing it twice this year – once for this shoot and then a different costume for the dance!,” Anita told TV Times. “I loved trick or treating as a kid and I went to a lot of Halloween parties when I was younger. One time I dressed as a corpse bride, which was particularly good for an angsty teenager.”

“I am a big fan of Halloween,” adds Gleb,  “I always carve a pumpkin and I really like to put on a costume and go partying. Last year I dressed up as Batman’s sidekick Robin, before that I was a drowned sailor, and another year me and my friends went as Greek Gods.

 “Of course,” chips in a giggly Anita, “he didn’t need to do very much dressing up for that!”
