So the BBC have confirmed that Alesha Dixon will be replacing Strictly Come Dancing judge, Arlene Phillips later this year. There will also be a fifth judge, ballet dance Darcey Bussell, which people haven't complained about much. Perhaps the fact that Darcey is actually a professional dancer of some sorts may have something to do with it. It is thought the BBC wanted a younger face on the panel to compete with the X Factor's Cheryl Cole but this decision has back-fired immensely. News columns are commenting on Alesha's lack of experience and the BBC's sexist decisions. Saying that Alesha Dixon has experience in her own right too. Not only did she win Strictly Come Dancing, but she was in a girl band making her experience of performance and dance limited, but yet, still experienced. Why wasn't old Brucey replaced with a younger man to present? Why is it always the women who are chucked once they've passed a certain age? Is the BBC shock horror sexist?!? You tell me!
