Rochelle gets a fright during filming

It wouldn't be Halloween without a few spooky surprises - as Rochelle found out today.

The Saturdays singer was left scrambling not once, not twice, but three during today's show!

Rochelle gets a fright live on air!

First she was stunned when a member of the crew dressed up as a skeleton and jumped up behind her during a fashion segment with Jenni Falconer.

Watch out Rochelle, there's a Halloween spider about!

Hubby Marvin was then in on the joke as a plastic spider dropped from the ceiling as she introduced Rylan and Alison Hammond's Fright Night at Thorpe Park.

Rochelle said: "No more please! I should have known that was coming!"

The final shock came at the end of the show during an interview with Diversity star Ashley Banjo.

After a zombie crept up behind the sofa, she screamed: "I hate you all!"

He's behind you! Rochelle gets yet another scare

Thankfully Rochelle was still smiling at the end of the show, posing for pictures with her new spooky friend.

Ashley Banjo's blossoming mission

I want to spread a positive message about healthy living

– Ashley Banjo

Diversity dance-troupe leader Ashley Banjo is taking on a new mission - lending his green fingers to Helping Britain Blossom.

Ashley joins us today to talk about his allotment and bringing communities together.

The recently-engaged star says: "I want to spread a positive message about healthy living."

He also tells us to expect lots of flips from Perry Kiely on Diversity's latest tour.

The frizzy-haired star is now 18 but many - including Rochelle - feel he looks much younger.

She said: "I saw him driving and I had to phone Marvin up and say Perry from Diversity is driving"

Ashley replied: "He has his own house now but I can't stop flipping him!"

During the interview a zombie snuck up on an unsuspecting Rochelle but thankfully they were all smiling by the end of the show.

Diversity's tour Limitless is touring nationwide from 28 November - 13 December.

Pumpkin and sage risotto

This Halloween it is estimated we will throw away 18,000 tons of perfectly edible squash after making our Jack O'Lanterns - that's the same weight as 1,500 double decker buses.

Phil Vickery is here to save the day with two frightfully tasty Halloween dishes: roasted pumpkin and sage risotto and a caramel soaked spiced pumpkin cake.
