Bruce Forsyth To Take Break From Strictly Come Dancing

Bruce ForsythIt would appear that the rumours of immortality are untrue and that Sir Bruce Forsyth is indeed human after all! News has recently broke that the legendary TV presenter will take a week’s holiday and miss the November 10th edition of BBC One’s popular dance show, Strictly Come Dancing. Brucie’s absence will be significant in that it is the first time he will voluntarily miss an airing of the show, which is now in its tenth series. The only time he has previously missed an episode was in 2009 when struck down by flu, with comedian Ronnie Corbett stepping into the breach. Not bad going for an 84 year old! It has emerged the holiday was negotiated between the presenter and producers of the show, before filming began on the new series. The veteran star is still widely recognised as one of the hardest working presenters in Britain if not the world, with a TV career that spans 72 years - and counting! A feat that was recognised back in September, when he was included in the 2013 edition of the Guinness World Records book; having been named the longest-serving male TV entertainer. There is no denying that Sir Bruce deserves a well-earned rest and we hope he has a nice relaxing time, wherever he ends up. Although knowing Brucie, we suspect that he won’t be lounging around on the settee at home, but more likely jetting off to some glamorous beach resort! Tess Daly will take over as the main host of Strictly Come Dancing in Brucie’s absence, with Claudia Winkleman moving over from the results show on Sunday night to act as support host. If you can’t imagine your weekly fix of Strictly Come Dancing without Bruce then don’t fear; nothing can keep him down for too long. The date of the break has carefully chosen to give the presenter time to recharge his batteries in time for the Children In Need Special, which will be beamed live from Wembley Arena on Friday 16th November.
