Arlene Phillips has said that this year's So You Think You Can Dance is a lot more sexier - and reckons it's made for a better show! The former Strictly Come Dancing judge told The Sun today that despite the lower ratings for this series, the programme feels "faster and hotter".

Arlene sits on the panel alongside "Nasty" Nigel Lythgoe, pop beauty Louise Redknapp and Sisco Gomez.

She told the newspaper: "[The show] is now a lot sexier. There are more clothes off! Let's face it, dance is about the body and when it is covered up sex looks like it is a long way away."

Despite the show facing the axe following a dip in ratings from the first series last January, Arlene reckons the the show has certainly improved in one aspect this year.

"We have definitely got sexier contestants - people with attitude and a mix of ages," the 67-year-old explained. "They are young and bright and full of the joys of spring. The whole show is faster and hotter."

So You Think You Can Dance continues tonight at 6:45PM on BBC One!
