So You Think You Can Dance panellist Arlene Phillips has revealed that the show's head judge, "nasty" Nigel Lythgoe, has become tetchy this year due to him flying back and forth between the states every week. Speaking to The Sun, Arlene also revealed she loved giving her opinion to him during the live shows.
"I do have a feisty relationship with Nigel," Arlene told the tabloid yesterday. "It just irritates me when someone thinks because a girl has got a beautiful physique she is better than the next one.
"I can see his eyes going. I can tell what he is feeling inside!"
The former Strictly Come Dancing judge added that reality telly's original Mr Nasty was suffering from jet lag due his work on American Idol. Arlene said that the 62-year-old was becoming "tetchy" thanks to his weekly cross-Atlantic plane trips!
