We consider systems with continuous spins and annealed dilution. We show that, as in the discrete case, such systems often undergo a phase transition, which is manifested in the appearance of a staggered intermediate phase. In particular, these phases appear in systems such as the massive Gaussian model where there is no phase transition in the undiluted system.
