Strictly viewers fuming about Ruth and Anton’s Halloween costumes

Strictly’s Halloween Week is one of the undisputed highlights of the British TV calendar – the costumes and the make-up are second to none.

And the show hasn’t disappointed tonight either, with pirates, Game of Thrones characters and skeletons doing a turn on that famous dance floor.

But one couple appeared to be letting the side down – as far as some viewers were concerned.

They were confused by Ruth Langsford and Anton Du Beke’s outfits, as they appeared to have missed the spooky memo.

The This Morning darling was dressed in a lovely blue gown – no hint of garish or ghoulish about it – while Anton looked like he’d come as his dad.

Of course, it wasn’t the case that these two weren’t playing ball – and they were very much on theme.

The popular duo had come as Samantha and Darren from 1960s sitcom Bewitched – she was a witch who did spell-y things with the wrinkle of her nose (which was always accompanied by a cute twinkling sound), Darren her long-suffering husband.

Ruth was a fan when the US show aired, explaining:

“I used to love that series, she used to wiggle her nose and strange things would happen.”

Anton said of her character tonight: “No one is more unlike a witch but maybe there is a hidden side to her.”

Still, confused fans of Strictly took to Twitter to express their confusion over the couple’s costume:
