Strictly Come Dancing 2011 axes its saucy dance moves!

Strictly Come Dancing

BBC bosses have apparently demanded that Strictly Come Dancing's 'saucy dance moves' need to be toned done for the upcoming live shows. According to The Sun, bosses have already moved in and axed some of the more sexy moves ahead of next weekend's second live show.

On Friday and Saturday the 14 celebs took to the dance floor for the first time as they performed either a Cha-Cha-Cha or Waltz with their professional partners.

But an insider revealed that some of the more intimate moves had been cut from the routines.

They explained: "Strictly has made a name for itself with its raunchy costumes and sexy routines. But bosses felt things had gone too far this year and stepped in before the show aired to get some of the moves clipped.

"They were concerned viewers might be shocked at some of the more sexy moves planned for the first two live shows.

"Dancers could get away with more on Friday's show because it aired after the 9pm watershed.

"But Saturday's went out at 6pm when a lot more families were watching. Going forward, that will be the time it normally airs, so you have to be careful about these things."

Alex Jones in particular was picked out for criticism, with her skimpy outfit causing concern at BBC HQ.

The insider said: "Alex is a beautiful girl who looked amazing in her barely there dress and James has obviously been working out, so he wanted to make the most of their first dance with some sexy twists and turns.

"But once show bosses saw rehearsal footage they had a word to remind James this is a family show."

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday on BBC One.
