Twiggy Turned Down Strictly

Model and television star Twiggy has revealed that she turned down the chance to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the 59-year-old star said that she had been approached about the show on a number of occasions.

Twiggy said: "Every year they ask me to do that programme, but I just can't do it and I never will. It makes me feel sick just at the thought of it."

The star has previously worked as a judge on US reality show America's Next Top Model.

Strictly Come Dancing in crisis after Sharon Osbourne and Richard Madeley quit over fee cuts
By Mark Jefferies


Strictly Come Dancing was in turmoil last night as some of the show’s top stars quit.

Sharon Osbourne walked out after her salary was slashed and Richard Madeley was another who left.

The walkouts came after BBC1 boss Jay Hunt insisted on a 30% reduction in costs this year.

Host Bruce Forsyth has taken a £160,000 cut from his £660,000 contract down to £500,000.

Producers also face a revolt from Strictly’s professional dancers, with some refusing to sign contracts because their £35,000 series fees are being heavily cut ...

Aussie-born Ms Hunt, 43, sparked an ageism outcry after dumping popular Arlene Phillips, 66, from the panel in favour of former winner Alesha Dixon.

Hunt’s heavy-handed style is causing concern because she has upset several BBC stars and executives since rejoining 18 months ago. At least three household names have been left shell-shocked after a dressing down from her.

One senior boss moaned: “Jay has no idea how to finesse a situation, especially with talent, and there’s a lot of disquiet.”

Sharon Osbourne, 57, was already concerned at Arlene’s brutal treatment. But the paltry contract she was offered made up her mind.

“Sharon is a serious player in America’s Got Talent but what the BBC finally offered was ridiculous” said a pal. “And what happened to Arlene was a disgrace.”

By contrast, Strictly’s rival The X Factor has a bigger budget this year, with up to £6million extra to spend.

Last night, a BBC spokeswoman denied the Mirror’s story – but went on to confirm it had met with Sharon and Richard.

Zoe Lucker For Strictly Come Dancing 2009?

Footballers’ Wives actress Zoe Lucker is said to have signed up for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

According to The Sun, Lucker is hoping an appearance on the show will raise her profile and boost her career.

“Zoe’s really keen to sign up for Strictly,” said a source. “Over the years she’s seen how being on the show has raised profiles of the celebrities who’ve taken part, such as Alesha Dixon and Rachel Stevens.

“She feels that she’s still only really known for her part in Footballers’ Wives, which ended more than three years ago.”

Unreality TV, 11/08/09.

I like Zoe Lucker. One of our best young actresses who is greatly under valued.

BBC To Drop Strictly Results Show

The BBC has announced it is to drop the BBC One show's Strictly Come Dancing Sunday night results programme.

Viewers will see couples compete, face the public vote and have the dance-off all in a single extended programme on Saturday evenings.

The pre-recorded Sunday show was introduced in 2007, but proved unpopular with many viewers.

A spokesman for the BBC said: "We are packing all the action into one dramatic show."

The new series of Strictly will begin in September with two special Friday night launch shows, but will switch to Saturdays from then on.

The spokesman added: "We wanted to make Strictly Come Dancing an unmissable TV event this autumn.

"Audiences will be watching, voting and, crucially, seeing who's in and who's out every week on Saturday nights."

Jo kicks Ronnie in the boleros
By James Weatherup.


THE dumped wife of rock legend Ronnie Wood will star in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Jo Wood, 53, ditched last year by the Rolling Stones guitarist for his 20-year-old Russian lover Ekaterina Ivanova, is already in training for the gruelling show.

A BBC insider revealed: "Jo is in fantastic shape, looks amazing and is going to be brilliant. She'll love to show Ronnie a clean pair of heels."

The Beeb tried to keep its new celebs under wraps before the show returns next month. But we can reveal that joining mum-of-three Jo will be former Footballers' Wives stars Zoe Lucker and Laila Rouass. Blonde Zoe, 34, played scheming Tanya Turner while Laila, 32, was her love rival Amber Gates. Now the girls will battle again on the dancefloor. They will be joined by Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding, 31, a former cop. The 16 new celebrities will also include world super middleweight champion boxer Joe Calzaghe.

The new series has already been hit by controversy with former winner Alesha Dixon, 30, replacing veteran judge Arlene Phillips, 66, and host Bruce Forsyth having his £660,000 salary reduced by a quarter.

I'm amazed that Bruce Forsythe is 15 years older than Arlene, and all he gets is a cut in salary. sad.gif

Tuffers to take spin on Strictly
By COLIN ROBERTSON


CRICKET legend Phil Tufnell has signed up to appear in Strictly Come Dancing.

The former spin- bowler, 43, is already in training for the BBC1 ballroom hit after agreeing a fee of around £30,000.

A show source said last night: "Phil is as fit as a fiddle so he's a perfect signing.

"He's also a massive Strictly fan and has been to watch the show several times in previous series."

The telly favourite - who won I'm A Celebrity in 2003 - will find out today which pro dancer he will partner in the series kicking off next month.

Meanwhile Tory heavyweight Ann Widdecombe is "seriously" considering an invitation to appear in next year's series.

Spinster Ann, 61, who steps down as an MP next year, was inspired by last year's performance by broadcaster John Sergeant.

She declared: "If he can galumph around the floor well, I can galumph around the floor."

Other names being lined up for this year's series include TV host Fern Britton, runner Linford Christie and ex-EastEnder Ricky Groves.

You’ll Never Guess Who’s Joined Strictly Come Dancing!

Crikey! Our British talent shows aren’t half stepping up their game at the moment, with just one day to go (hurrah) until the start of The X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing look to be lacing up their boxing gloves with a super exiting announcement…

The folk at the Beeb are proud to announce that La Toya Jackson is in talks to appear on the show, and she should (all being well) be signing on the dotted line later today! *SCREAM!*

Now we know she crawled onto the Z List after making an appearance on this year’s Celebrity Big Brother and won us over by letting us hear all about her rather bizarre past. Cue a violent ex lover…

But it appears that the cute little lady we saw on Big Brother has been hardened by the death of her brother, which has once again made her a mega star… and it’s thought that she has already fired off a list of demands, which include wanting her own dressing room.

Oh well, think of what it would do for the ratings… I wonder if she has her brother’s killer moves and even more exciting, if she‘ll dance to one of his tracks?

Female First, 21/08/09.

If true, I am totally shocked.

Strictly £50,000 per star
By James Weatherup.


STARS of this year's Strictly Come Dancing will each be paid the same sum - £50,000.

BBC bosses want to avoid the jealous bickering that broke out last year over pay packets.

An insider said: "We're going head-to-head with X Factor. Bosses don't want any hiccups."

Set for this year's show are tennis legend Martina Hingis, 28, Oxo actress Linda Bellingham, 61, The Bill's Ali Bastian, 26, athlete Jade Johnson, 29, Hollyoaks' Ricky Whittle, 37, Crimewatch's Rav Wilding, 31, and BBC Breakfast's Chris Hollins, 47.

Pairings will include Brendan Cole with Ronnie Wood's estranged wife Jo, 54. Footballers' Wives star Zoe Lucker, 35, dances with James Jordan, while ex-EastEnder Natalie Cassidy, 26, partners Vincent Simone. Actress Laila Rouass, 34, is with Anton du Beke, Kristina Rihanoff with boxer Joe Calzaghe, 37, and EastEnder Ricky Groves, 38, with Erin Boag.
