Bruce Forsyth: “I regret doing some game shows”

Strictly Come Dancing host, Bruce Forsyth, has told the Radio Times that he regrets hosting some game shows.

However, he added that hosting some shows was, “money for old rope”.

82-year-old, who has hosted dozens of game shows, including Play Your Cards Right, The Generation Game and Bruce’s Price Is Right, described himself as the “laziest person in the world”.

He added that often, it was possible to film an entire series of a game show in just two weeks, “then take as much time off as you like”.

But he added that doing so meant he could spend more time with his wife, the former Miss World, Wilnelia.

Bruce said, “I regret doing so many game shows, but I started when I met Wilnelia, and we love spending time together…

“You can do a series in two weeks. Then take as much time off as you like. Money for old rope.

“People don’t understand I can be the laziest person in the world.

“In Puerto Rico I eat well, and lounge in the shade on the beach reading lots of books, mostly courtroom dramas.”

Nice work if you can get it eh?
