Melvin Odoom has already won Halloween with his brilliant Strictly-inspired costume


Melvin Odoom has poked fun at his early Strictly Come Dancing exit in the best way possible.

The radio and TV star looked incredible in his Halloween outfit for the Kiss Haunted House Party in London, a very star-studded event indeed.

And, although stars - including X Factor contestants - did their best with their costumes, it was the Kiss FM presenter's look that won the night, and indeed the entire freaky season.

Melvin wore a battered and bloodied dance costume with a glitterball smashed on to his head, and plenty of fake blood trickling down.

His bemused and almost zombie-like expression completed its brilliance.

Melvin was the first star to leave Strictly this year after he and professional partner Janette Manrara received the fewest votes.

Other stars at the celebrity soiree included last year's X Factor winner Louisa Johnson, who looked sensational - if rather non-scary - in a red latex number with thigh-high boots and a fluffy coat.

Fierce perhaps isn't a strong enough word to describe the So Good singer's look.

This year's X Factor contestants including Gifty Louise, Saara Aalto and Samantha Lavery were also in attendance on the red carpet along with living doll and former contestant Sada Vidoo.

Craig David performed at the event, but failed to rock a Halloween look, as did singer Charli XCX who opted for a "less is more" ensemble.
