I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! welcomed Strictly Come Dancing star Arlene Phillips into the castle this year making her the oldest contestant ever to enter the competition.

The dancer, who has already sparked controversy on the show following her off the cuff comment about OCD, has spent many years in showbiz after launching her career.

She has always oozed the ultimate glamour since her first TV debut, and to celebrate the glam 78-year-old, Daily Star has looked back at some of her glam showbiz snaps.

In one stunning photo, Arlene, at just 28-years-old, was posing up a storm in a dazzling blue bikini as she poured her curves into the teeny two-piece.

The photo, taken in the '70s, saw Arlene donning her red locks pulled back into an half up half down ensemble as he paired it with a simple necklace.

An additional snap of Arlene saw the beauty showing off her toned figure in a red two-piece with a tie-up bikini as she pinned her hair back in a high bun.

The throwback photos are dated back to the '70s when Arlene was in her 20s.

A photo dated years later also saw the beauty in a skintight red leotard as she paired it with a belt and a simple necklace while her dazzling locks erupted around her face.

She donned a subtle makeup look with dark eyeliner and a swipe of lippy.

Arlene historically confessed to Daily Mail that her time as a young dancer in the early '70s was a "fine time to be an attractive woman on the fringes of Showbiz".

The dancer truly launched her career in the '70s and was a member of dance troupe Hot Gossip who made TV appearances multiple times.

They were also in countless music videos before Arlene focused on her own career and landed a role on Strictly Come Dancing from 2004 until 2008 before she was replaced by Alesha Dixon.

In November 2018 it was revealed that he will be returning to the show as the choreograph of a special performance with Strictly pros.

Taking her career into a new direction, 2021 saw Arlene focus on a new challenge as she made an appearance on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
