Savage brought back from the dead

Robbie Savage was a hair-erasing sight as he got in the mood for Halloween - as a bald zombie.

The former soccer star, noted for his swishy blond mane, was given a makeover by dance partner Ola Jordan.

Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola gave Robbie a bald head wig, swapped his pearly gnashers for a set of twisted teeth and gave his face a ghostly pallor.

The ex-Derby County star and Wales international was already looking less than his best after last week's show, when he suffered a swollen nose after bashing into a camera with a dramatic slide.

Fans should not worry too much about the striker losing his head of glossy hair. It will be back for Saturday night's edition of the BBC1 show, although show bosses say he will be having it curled "in tribute to Michael Jackson".

The pair will be dancing a Paso Doble to Jacko's hit Bad.

Each of the 11 couples will wearing ghoulish costumes to celebrate Halloween to bewitch judges and viewers.
