Attention strippers, exotic dancers, and adult entertainers of the Valley: A few television producers are eager to speak with you.

The folks behind a new reality show titled Strip Search will hold a casting call for the program this coming Tuesday at local rave venue Stratus and are on the lookout for exotic dancers from all over Arizona.

While there will be a couple stripper poles at the audition, and potential cast members might be asked to show off some tricks, they won't be asked to show off some skin.

"There's no nudity in the show, it's not going to be the centerpoint," producer David Van Wie says. "We're going to tell them right off the bat, 'Don't bother taking off your tops and throw them around.' That's not what we're looking for."

Duckworth's Corrie lap dance joint

Coronation Street bad boy Terry Duckworth will return to the cobbles as the owner of a lap dancing club, it has been reported.

The troublesome son of Jack and Vera - played by Nigel Pivaro - has been at the centre of a number of schemes during his appearances in the soap, including selling his son Tommy to his parents-in-law.

It was recently confirmed he would be returning to the Street. Now it has been claimed Terry will cause outrage in Weatherfield when he opens a strip club in the area, according to the Daily Mirror.

Pornography has no place on pay-TV in South Africa, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) has ruled.

The decision comes following the application by the owners of the Top TV satellite platform, On Digital Media, to launch three sexually explicit subscription-only channels.

Jubie Matlou, spokesman for Icasa, said the regulator weighed up all the submissions and decided that women's right to dignity outweighed TopTV's right to freedom of expression, and the rights of viewers to receive pornography on television.

He added that documentation of the reasons would follow within 30 days.

"The key point revolved around how to balance the right of the applicant, in terms of freedom of expression, with the right of women to human dignity enshrined in the Constitution," he told news agency Sapa.
