Strictly Come Dancing: Alesha Dixon’s Death Threats

15399220STRICTLY Come Dancing youngest magistrate Alesha Dixon has been “axed”.

It’s drastic. But nine out of ten dance fans writing on the BBC’s message boards did want Dixon dead, and the national’ broadcaster lacks relevancy if it cannot deliver what the viewers want.

And the killing of Alseha Dixon gets the BBC off the hook, allowing producers to cut their losses with the reviled Dixon and create the kind of sympathetic back story the show needs.

There are rumours of the dancers and celebrities fighting over which of them could wield the axe – dancer Anton du Beke said he needed to win back the public after his Paki outburst and Phil Tufnell was keen to squash rumours of his being a joker and not taking the dance show seriously.

As for the gore:

STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon will be replaced by sacked Arlene Phillips for the show’s live tour.

As a BBC source puts it:

A BBC spokesman said: “Alesha has prior commitments.”

Dance fans may recalls that New magazine told us back in September that the former judge is being considered in case, er, Kate Thornton is unavailable.

Of course, the real reason why Dixon can’t attend is not because she’s dead nor less than keen to spend a summer sat in provincial halls and piers watching Ricky Whittle undo his buttons, but because she is scared to leave her front door and will be forced to flee to the Maldives…
