New job for former Strictly judge

Arlene Philips

After being replaced by Alesha Dixon on the judging panel for Strictly Come Dancing, Arlene Philips has got herself a new job as a dance champion.

It doesn't mean she'll be strutting herself in competitions though, instead she's been asked by the government to encourage more of you to start dancing.

It's all part of a new plan by health chiefs to improve everyone's fitness by getting us all to do more exercise.

Arlene will be helping to organise community dance activities.
