Strictly Come Dancing fans have called out Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly on social media for not donning Halloween costumes on the show this weekend, but little did they know there's a powerful reason.
Nine years ago, co-presenter Winkleman's young daughter Matilda was involved in a horrifying incident while treat-or-treating that resulted in a three-week hospital stay - suffering severe leg burns after her witch outfit caught fire.
In the time since this nightmare scenario, her mum, who also hosts The Traitors, has become a campaigner for the safety regulations around materials that are used in children's fancy dress costumes.
"I don't like Halloween because three years ago it turned out our screams were real," Winkleman previously commented during an interview on BBC's Watchdog.
"She 'went up' is the only way I can describe it - it was a spark, and she screamed out for me. It was like those horrific birthday candles that you blow out and they come back. It was really fast, it wasn't fire like I'd seen.
"It was definitely life-changing for me. I was talking to somebody and then I heard her shout and she was on fire. It feels like she was on fire for hours, but the surgeon said it was probably just seconds."
The Winkleman family's neighbour Jamie Poulton was left with second degree burns, too, having attempted to extinguish the blaze with his bare hands.
He said of the event: "It was like a potential horror film in front of me. This material just keeps reigniting and re-burning. And it is sticky, so it melts on the skin. It was horrific."
Du Beke opted for 'mad scientist' while Ballas stepped out as Queen Grimhilde from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves; Mabuse was a spider, and Horwood gave us his best Severus Snape from Harry Potter.
