Brucie steps down his role on Strictly

Online team

Our much loved host and legend Sir Bruce Forsyth confirmed today that he is stepping down from presenting the Strictly Come Dancing live shows.

We are pleased to announce he will remain on BBC One to present the Strictly Christmas Special, the Strictly Children in Need Special and other one-off specials yet to be revealed.

The man himself said: “After ten wonderful years and eleven series, I believe it is now the right time to step down from the rigours of presenting the Strictly live shows. I am very proud of what the show has achieved and confident it will entertain the nation for many years to come. I am also delighted that by presenting the Christmas and Children In Need shows I will continue to have a strong association with Strictly. In addition, I am looking forward to the specials planned with the BBC as well as some live theatre shows, so before anyone asks.... I am not retiring quite yet!”

Over the years he has tapped danced, shimmied and even gangnam-styled into the studio. He always performed his own warm-up routine for the show and kept us entertained with his one liners...
