Strictly viewers were NOT happy with Tess and Claudia last night
Many viewers criticised the hosts for not donning costumes on last night’s show.
It was Strictly Come Dancing’s annual Halloween special last night, and as expected the stars and judges of the show all donned costumes for the occasion.
However, hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly did not dress up for the show and many viewers weren’t happy about it.
Even the orchestra are participating in the Halloween theme Tess and Claudia take note ? #Strictly

However, the presenters may have had very good reason for it, choosing to boycott Halloween costumes this year due to an accident Claudia's daughter had in 2015.
It’s being reported Claudia is choosing to forgo costumes this year after her daughter, Matilda, was set on fire due to one she wore two years ago.
Since the terrible accident, Claudia has been an avid campaigner for safety regulations when it comes to Halloween costumes.
“I bought her costume from the supermarket, she wanted to go as a witch,” she told the BBC Watchdog after the accident.
"She had a witches hat, and a cape, and I was just talking to somebody and then I heard her scream.
“And she just screamed 'mummy', and I turned around and that was that, she was just on fire.”
Matilda’s outfit hit off a candle and immediately caught fire, one which Claudia says she’d never seen anything like.
