MIS­CHIEVOUS Mol­lie King looks dev­il­ishly sexy last night dur­ing Strictly Come Danc­ing’s Hal­loween show.

The for­mer Satur­days singer donned a daz­zling red cat­suit for her rou­tine with AJ Pritchard, who had bat­tled back from a bug which left him bedrid­den. The cou­ple did the cha cha to Kylie Minogue’s Bet­ter The Devil You Know. After­wards Mol­lie said: “Wow! I’m lov­ing this – danc­ing to Kylie Minogue.”

Judge Bruno To­nioli, back af­ter miss­ing last week’s show, called their ef­fort “dev­il­ishly good”. But head judge Shirley Bal­las told Mol­lie: “You’re wear­ing your shoul­ders as ear­rings,” be­fore the cou­ple scored a very av­er­age 27.

Ex JLS singer As­ton Mer­ry­gold and Janette Man­rara did the paso doble to Nir­vana clas­sic Smells Like Teen Spirit. Bruno said their per­for­mance, which earned a near-per­fect 38 points, “brought the dead back to life.” X Fac­tor win­ner Alexan­dra Burke per­formed the tango dressed as a zom­bie princess to Nelly Fur­tado’s Maneater, earn­ing more high praise from the judges and a score of 35.

Em­merdale’s Joe McFad­den joined Katya Jones to fox­trot to Cold­play’s Trou­ble dressed as a cob­web. They got 32 with the panel prais­ing Joe’s “bril­liant sto­ry­telling.” Deb­bie

McGee got a standing ova­tion for her Charleston, and went to the top of the leader­board with 39. This Morn­ing’s Ruth Langs­ford did the Quick­step to Be­witched by Steve Lawrence. Af­ter Craig Revel Hor­wood panned it, Ruth re­torted: “Shall I wrig­gle my nose and make him dis­ap­pear?” Par­a­lympic hero Jon­nie Pea­cock got a bot­tom-placed 20 points af­ter a cha cha to Olly Murs’ Trou­ble­maker dressed as a pi­rate.
