Have just seen on DigitalSpy that the Beeb have confirmed that Alesha Dixon will be a judge on the next season of Strictly, replacing Arlene Philips.
Also, Darcey Bussell will appear as a guest judge at the end of the season, and will have a role on It Takes Two as well.
Honestly, my reaction is they've got it the wrong way round!! I'd rather see Alesha on ITT (maybe doing backstage stuff, interviews) and Darcey as a judge full-time. She would be a much better choice, much as I love Alesha!!
Press release says these are only part of the new format for this years show; more will be revealed later in the year.
Could be a trainwreck in the making....
