The BBC have banned Strictly hunks like Ben Cohen from flashing their pecs!

I’m furious! What’s all this nonsense about the male stars of Strictly told to keep their shirts on?

Surely a rippling chest and saucy six pack are as essential to viewers as the lashings of glitter and sequins that twinkle before us every weekend!

And grumpy Auntie Beeb have decided to take it away from us! Not fair!

Fair enough, the no shirt off rule should be slapped on the likes of Mark Benton or that Hairy Biker guy but I’m sorry Ben Cohen and Ashley Taylor Dawson have an obligation to tickle out TV fancies by peeling off and teasing us with their tantalising torsos!

Surely the silly producers must remember how their ratings shot up when gorge Harry Judd sashayed across the dance floor with his nips out. And don’t forget how hot our winter was last year when Louis Smith flashed his chest so many times viewers were left dazzled!

How dare the BBC take our greatest guilty pleasure away from us – us, the licence paying viewer!

Yes, of course we wanna see celebs strut their stuff but when there’s a hot boy on the floor his fancy foot work is the last thing we wanna watch!

And I bet Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood will back me up on that!

Bring on the campaign save our Strictly Six Packs!
