became the Loose Witches for a special of the daytime show and ’s spooky transformation definitely meets the brief.
The 58-year-old gave a fright as The Grand High Witch from Roald Dahl’s The Witches.
Nadia started the episode in the same way as the character in the book and films – using a beautiful disguise to blend in with society.
An epic metamorphose was teased throughout the special episode, and as the hour-long programme was drawing to a close a hideous appearance was unmasked.

The rest of the panellists got involved in the magic of Halloween with scary outfits (although nobody quite matched Nadia).
New panellist Olivia, 32, found fame on sunny Love Island but made an excellent White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia which makes us think the winter version should take place in The Alps.

Finally, Jane Moore, 61, was the Wicked Witch of the West from Wizard of Oz. She got her own theatrical moment too, when the three other witches doused her in water to conclude the episode.
She shouted ‘I’m melting’ as the credits rolled.
Happy Halloween all! If you’ve not quite got you spooky fix yet then check out how
