Ed Balls has scored his highest place on the judges' leader board so far with an electrifying performance on Strictly Come Dancing.
The ex-Labour MP dressed as a mad scientist for the Halloween-themed special, and danced to Hansel Martinez's version of Love Potion No. 9.
His routine, which was packed with crotch-grabs and pelvic thrusts, was described by head judge Len Goodman as his 'best dance yet'.
While Mr Balls made it through to the next round on Sunday night, singer Anastacia became the sixth celebrity to vanish from the dance floor.
She and partner Brendan Cole faced model Daisy Lowe and Aljaz Skorjanec in the dance-off, performing their Fright Night routines for a second time.

But Anastacia stayed positive in the face of disappointment and thanked the show for helping her nurture her feminine side.
