Alex leaps to the defence of Strictly's Bruce

Alex Jones has hit out at those who say that Bruce Forsyth is too old to carry on presenting Strictly Come Dancing, and insisted critics should just “let him be”.

Alex, who is hosting Let's Dance for Comic Relief, took part in the TV dance competition in 2011 and described Brucie as doing a “brilliant job” in an interview with a celebrity website.

Craig: I axed moaning Jordans from the tour

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has told Ola and James Jordan to stop "moaning" – admitting that it was his decision to boot them off the show's tour.

TV Biz revealed yesterday that the popular husband and wife — who have been in every annual Strictly tour — are axed from next year's live shows around the country. Now acid-tongued Craig, the live tour's director who has overall control for the show, has waded in and blasted the dancers.

Ola and James axed from Strictly tour

Strictly Come Dancing's Ola and James Jordan are fuming after being told by email that they are not on this year's tour. The professional dancers were snubbed by show producers who wrote to them to say "they would not be needed".

Ola and James have taken part in every annual Strictly tour and had rejected other work offers for early next year. The snub means she will not dance with Robbie Savage, her partner on the show, when it hits the road.

She and dancefloor partner James Jordan are among the Strictly Come Dancing stars who recreate the 12 Days Of Christmas for a photoshoot.

The presenter, who is dating an insurance broker called Charlie, told the Daily Telegraph: "We've been quite lucky in that - that clearly isn't there!"

Spray tan stains increase Alex's cleaning bill

Alex Jones has revealed her cleaning bill has soared since she signed up for Strictly Come Dancing - because of her regular spray tan sessions. The One Show host, who is partnered with dance professional James Jordan, has upped her grooming game for the BBC One contest.

She wrote in the Radio Times: "My weekly cleaning bill has gone up by £7.50 due to the bright-orange fake tan stains on my sheets, my scalp is ridden with lumps of glue thanks to the Kate Bush-inspired hair extensions, and my flat is so strewn with dancewear that it looks as if it's been ransacked by someone with a fetish for legwarmers."

I'm thrilled we whipped X Factor

Alex said the celebs were overjoyed last weekend when Strictly Come Dancing pulled in a bigger audience than ITV1's X Factor for the first time in four years. The One Show host believes the absence of Simon Cowell has given Strictly a chance to shine.
