Every year he throws the mother of all Halloween parties for his showbiz pals and it looks like this year is no different.

Chat show host Jonathan Ross spent the day before his legendary party preparing for Wednesday night, as a team of builders and decorators got to work.

This year the 51-year-old is going for a new theme as he seemed to be transforming his Hampstead house into a haunted castle, complete with dungeon.

His next door neighour seemed to be embracing something similar and could well be part of the night's festivities.

The front of the house was covered in large cobwebs with a huge, black spider sitting over the front door, while the windows were covered from the inside with scary orange hangings.

Alluding to Jonathan's love of comic books, a number of life size action figures including Superman and Batman could be seen dotted in the grounds of the two properties.

A team of builders spent Wednesday
morning round the back of the TV presenter's house, turning the walls
into a medieval dungeon complete with barred windows.

Clearly
trying to go one better than last year, Jonathan's helpers nailed large
MDF boards right round his house and painted then to resemble large
stone bricks.

The afternoon of the party, the radio DJ took to Twitter to tweet a teaser picture showing a mangled body with his pigs:

'The pigs are getting ready for Halloween…,' he wrote.
