The dancers get touchy-feely

Arlene Phillips is still very close to Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli, if their antics this week are anything to go by.

Arlene – who was axed from Strictly in 2009 and replaced by Alesha Dixon – shared a passionate snog with Bruno, 57, at the opening of WAG! The Musical in London on Wednesday night.

The two dancers looked slightly worse for wear as they puckered up while Simon Cowell‘s pal Sinitta, 44, looked on in mock horror.

Arlene, 70, put her hand on Bruno’s chest and posed seductively with Sinitta getting in on the action too, giving the Italian a cheeky kiss on the ear.

The next day Arlene admitted it had been quite a party, telling her Twitter followers: A late great night @wagthemusical last night‘.
