Alesha Dixon Quits Strictly Come Dancing, Gordon Brown Agrees

by | 20th, September 2009

STRICTLY Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon has quit the show. Gordon Brown agrees with the verdcit. Well, not yet. Brown wants to see which way the Sun opts for before making his decision known. Meantime,  Dixon is more likely to be Youth Dance Czar than fall foul of Brown. But the tabloids want her to go.

Dixon tells Daily Star readers: “I’ll beat Strictly Boo Boys”

Dixon is the youngest celebrity magistrate since Vanessa Feltz. And she’s fight back as the critics don the black cap and order that Alesha Dixon be taken from his place and hung until dead, or BBC 3 give her a chat show:

STRICTLY CLUELESS,” laments the Mirror’s front page:

Fans demand dull judge Alesha quits show after ‘so boring’ verdicts.

And those are her fans.

The News of The World gives the viewers’ verdict:

Hammers&irons said: “She might as well be a cardboard cut-out. Her comments are vacuous and pointless.”

Moll_Flanders said: “Just namby-pamby remarks anyone can do. Arlene is sorely missed!”

Shoesgirl said: “Pointless, irritating, clueless and no technical knowledge.”

Says a BBC spokesman (aka Lord Ov Da Dance):

“We are pleased at how fantastically well Alesha was received.”

The Mail looks at Alesha’s technical advice:

She advised Rav Wilding: ‘It was a bit odd with the arms,’ while Martina Hingis was told: ‘You need to work on your arms more. For me they were a bit flyaway.’ And she mentioned arms again when she told Jade: ‘Your arms were a bit throwaway.’

The Mirror laments the lack of original comment and reports:

But she made virtually the same remark to several different contestants, telling Jade Johnson: “Your arms were a bit throwaway.” Rav Wilding was told: “It was a bit odd with the arms,” and Martina Hingis: “You need to work on your arms more. For me they were a bit flyaway.”

Oh, for a shred of the tabloids’ originality.

As the Express puts it – and look out for Alesha talking to its sister organ, OK!:

GLAMOROUS new judge Alesha Dixon helped Strictly Come Dancing turn in a storming ratings performance on its first night.

Hurrah for Alesha Dixon.

Note: Alesha met Gordon Brown once. Jonah Brown – patron saint of lost causes. She’s doomed…
