Nancy Dell'Olio has been bottom of the leaderboard every week since Strictly Come Dancing began.
But it looks like the Italian lawyer is preparing to rise from the dead... or at least up the scoreboard as she rehearses for tonight's Halloween special.
The 50-year-old star showed her funny side as she lay in a coffin as she practised her rumba with professional partner Anton Du Beke yesterday.She's alive!

Spooky stuff: The Italian lawyer didn't appear too freaked out by lying in the wooden box
The pair are hoping their take on the passionate Cuban dance to Dusty Springfield's Spooky will sway the judges.
Her highest score to date has been 20 for her Argentine tango two weeks ago.
Speaking on last night's Graham Norton Show about her time on Strictly, she said: 'I really enjoy it but think I was wise to say no to it in past years. It's a very intense, full-on experience, but I love it.'Maybe I should close it... Anton looks like he's changed his mind about releasing his 'vampire' partner
But she was honest about her dancing skills: 'I probably am not a great dancer... My public says whether I win or not.'
And she insisted she had a great relationship with Du Beke.
She enthused: 'He has great style and manners and we have a great relationship. We make great TV.'
Meanwhile, also getting the Halloween spirit was ex-footballer Robbie Savage and his partner Ola Jordan.Where's your long blonde locks? Robbie Savage wears a bald cap and crooked teeth as he practises with Ola Jordan
