His future on SCD has of course been the subject of much speculation, pretty much since the last series ended, because of course national treasure Bruce is 85 years old, and though he’s seemingly unstoppable – and some suggest immortal/undead – it was thought he may take a back seat on the show or quit altogether this year.
But not so as he’s told the Daily Mirror that he’s ready, willing and able to take on another year hosting the nation’s favourite dance show… Read more & comment »

The rivalry between Strictly Come Dancing and any/all of Simon Cowell’s reality shows is of course nothing new, and every year, as the clash between SCD and X Factor draws nigh – both shows air in the autumn – there are usually one or two jibes to be had from each show’s reps…
