We are desperately saddened by claims today that BBC are planning to axe So You Think You Can Dance.

So You Think You Can Dance: Matt Flint choreographed Let’s Dance routine for James Thornton and Charlie Baker

A clip of the London based performer was featured on BBC Breakfast this morning, and he was seen stunning the SYTYCD judging panel – Nigel Lythgoe, Arlene Phillips, Louise Redknapp and Sisco Gomez – with his fast paced and unique tap routine.
They nicknamed her Cheeky Charlie during the competition, but tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance final, Charlie Bruce had emerged as a mature, competent dancer. After a dislocated shoulder caused my personal favourite – Robbie White – to have to drop out, Charlie found herself in the final three with Lizzie Gough and Tommy Franzen.
