Bruce Forsyth and Jonathan Ross on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross

Bruce and Tess hijack Friday Night With Jonathan Ross

On tonight's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross on BBC One, there's a surprise interloper when the king of the dance floor Bruce Forsyth tries to hijack the show along with Strictly Come Dancing co-host Tess Daly.


"I knew you wouldn't be disappointed," Bruce tells the audience, "at last they've sent for a proper professional!" – until Jonathan finally restores order.


And Boyzone join Jonathan for an exclusive insight into their come-back plans.


They talk about why they split: "It was a break we all decided on, all five of us, we all wanted a break," says Ronan. "It was a confusing time," says Shane, "it was to do with my loose tongue and anger, and I carried that on."


And the dynamics that drew them back together: "In rehearsals we got on so well, we hadn't seen each other for a while, it was just mad," says Stephen.

They confirm that they are happy to be back with Louis Walsh: "Yes, he's managing Boyzone, he's done a great job, he gave us a great opportunity, " says Ronan.


And they reveal they are nervous about the competition this time round: "We're aware that we have a lot of competition on the live circuit," says Mikey. "So we're planning a really spectacular show ... we're training hard, Take That have really set the bar," says Ronan, "we've got a lot of work to do."


"The first time was a very different situation," says Mikey, "we were owned, you had no personal life, this time round we're controlling the whole thing."


"At the moment it feels all right. No one's forcing themselves, it's a good place to be, "says Keith. "It's amazing for us to be back, we're so lucky to have a second chance," says Stephen.


Jonathan also welcomes to the show cult comedy duo The Mighty Boosh, whose new series is currently on BBC Three, ethical chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and there's music from Kate Nash performing new single Pumpkin Soup live in the studio.


A Hotsauce TV production for BBC One.
