Bruce Forsyth coming home from Puerto Rico to discuss Strictly Come Dancing future!
Bruce Forsyth is reportedly meeting with BBC bosses this week, to determine whether or not he wants to appear on the 11th series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The 85 year old star has been co-presenting the BBC series since it’s inception in 2004 and has seen it winning ratings wars week on week over the past few years.
Bosses believe they have a fantastically successful format and team and are keen for the octogenarian to return for the 2013 run. Bruce is due to return from his second home in Puerto Rico – where he has been living since the 2012 series ended – this week and insiders say he will meet with the team and decide if he is making a comeback.
A source told The Daily Mail:
‘Our hope is he will want to continue with Strictly. We love him and want him to keep doing it, although we understand he has to make a decision he is comfortable with.’
It is thought that if Bruce does return, he will once again only front the main show with Tess Daly, while Claudia Winkleman steps in to co-host the results show with the blonde beauty later in the evening.
During his meeting with BBC executives Forsyth will also discuss plans to air a TV special which will celebrate his 70 years in the entertainment and television industry.
The event will be filled with celebrities that have worked with the pensioner over the decades and the insider added:
‘It’s going to be a tribute to his 70 years of TV work, but is not related to his future plans. Hopefully we’ll be producing a special celebrating his 80 years on the box, too.’
