Fans did a double take when they saw the images of former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips, 78.

The pictures, which were taken 50 years ago, show the professional dancer posing in a two-piece bikini.

At just 28-years-old, the TV star oozed glamour in some black swimwear and gave fans a glimpse of her enviable curves.

In another photo, Arlene dazzled in a tiny red bikini as she styled her hair back in a high bun.

Looking completely different in another photo, Arlene gave fans a glimpse of her vibrant red hairdo from the 70s.

She completed her chic look with a some red lippy and eyeliner as she posed in a skintight ruby coloured t-shirt.

The TV star recently hit headlines over Arlene’s OCD “joke” after fans called on ITV to apologise.

The broadcasting watchdog received 59 complaints over the ex Strictly judge’s remarks on the ITV show on Sunday night.

Complaints had flooded Twitter during the series launch after Arlene said she suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder because she hates dirt.

“I cannot live with dirt. I am completely OCD about everything in my life being organised, clean, neat and tidy,” she said as she travelled in the car to meet her campmates.

Taking to Twitter, some viewers called on ITV to address Arlene’s remarks and apologise for airing them.

One tweeted: “As it was prerecorded I’m disappointed that @ITV didn’t edit out. #OCD is not a funny quirky desire to be clean. It is a mental health condition that can turn peoples lives upside down. Apology needed from #imaceleb.”

Another said: “How many times, OCD isn’t a cute little quirk about liking things tidy. It’s a debilitating mental health disorder. Do better itv, you didn’t have to show Arlene saying that #ImACeleb.”

A third raged: “OCD is not an adjective and not a ‘quirk’.. please can @ITV take this on board? Let’s all work together to raise more awareness that OCD is a serious mental health condition and not a term to describe how clean you are.. #ImACeleb.”


Meanwhile, producers fear campmates will follow Richard Madeley out of Gwrych Castle, North Wales — as Storm Arwen threatens snow and 80mph winds.

Crew are so concerned at flagging morale that they have been leaving biscuits and Haribo sweets in a private room to cheer up stars.

Dame Arlene Phillips, the oldest contestant in the show’s history at 78, is on daily painkillers.

Earlier this week, Arlene told her fellow campmates that she was considering leaving after a tough first few days in The Clink.

A source said: “Spirits were already rock bottom at the start of the week with The Clink and Main Camp split.

“But there are growing concerns for Arlene who is really struggling and in chronic pain. 

“She is being helped around by the likes of David Ginola and Naughty Boy and is looking really frail. It’s hard enough roughing it in the ruins of an old castle let alone at 78 years old.

“She is a trooper and wants to show everyone how tough she is. 

“But there may come a point where the decision is taken out of her hands.”
