Davina McCall says Got To Dance is now 'respected' by dancers

Sky1 talent contest Got To Dance has now won over the dance community after four years on air, its host Davina McCall reckons.

The show wrapped its latest run in March - dubbed the 'series of excellence' by its judges - with Canadian choreographer Lukas McFarlane being crowned the winner.

And Davina has suggested that the extremely high standard of talent it has attracted proves that it is now considered a top platform for budding dancers looking for exposure.

Speaking to TellyMix while filming Channel 4 gameshow The Million Pound Drop recently, she said: "I think finally what's happening is that its become respected by the dance community so now we're getting better and better dancers."

However, the 45-year-old added that she hasn't had a chance to check out the competition on ITV rival Britain's Got Talent.

Details of a fifth series of Got To Dance have yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that McFarlane has signed to Beautiful Movements, a new management company set up by show judge and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt.

Davina hosts the last episodes in the current series of The Million Pound Drop tonight at 9.00pm and tomorrow at 8.20pm on Channel 4.
