Strictly Come Dancing: Phillips Out, Photon In?

Phillips: out?

From Bruce Protocol, Our Man in the Lurex Spangled Top Slit to the Waist:

Following the revelation that Arlene Phillips is to be dropped from the judging panel of the BBC's Saturday night hit Strictly Come Dancing, speculation abounds as to who will replace the 66 year old choreographer and former Hot Gossip dancer.

It is thought that the Beeb want to introduce a bit more glamour to the show in response to arch-rival ITV's success with Britain's Got Talent and X-Factor.

Hot favourite to replace Ms Phillips is former blogger and Spraying the Rays Beer and Football correspondent Stray Photon.

Mr Photon (32) is expected to step down from his position at the award winning blog following adverse publicity over an expenses scandal which has recently come to light.

The ruggedly handsome Yorkshireman has long expressed an interest in working more closely with dancers such as Camilla Dallerup, Ola Jordan and Kristina Rihanoff, not to mention Anton Du Beke.

Daller: up?

Other candidates for the position include Susan Boyle, Hazel Blears and Kevin Keegan.

Spraying the Rays asked chief judge and former Crystal Palace full back Len Goodman for his thoughts. He said rather noisily, "Seven!"

Goodman: loud speaker

In other news: raise a glass please to Bob Bogle, lead guitarist of The Ventures, who died on Sunday aged 75.

Sorry to hear about Bob, but we're getting to that "all my fucking heroes are snuffing it" age I'm afraid.
Is there a premium telephone number we can ring to get you voted in to the "Strictly" hot seat?
You've got the Howesy vote (as long as we get second dibs on the dancers....)
