'Strictly Come Dancing': Sir Bruce Forysth expected to host in 2012

By
Sir Bruce Forsyth is expected to continue hosting Strictly Come Dancing in 2012, sources have stated.

The veteran entertainer has presented the BBC contest since its first series in 2004, but there has been lingering speculation that he would be forced to step down due to his age.

Strictly insiders have apparently staved off the rumours once again by saying that Forsyth - who turns 84 before next year's series - is still welcome on the programme.

"Bruce has had a great series and Strictly is his as long as he wants it," a source told The Sun. "We are working on the assumption he'll be back."

Forsyth took a reduced role in last year's edition of the programme, relinquishing presenting duties on the Sunday results shows to co-host Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

Former Strictly winners Chris Hollins and John Barrowman have both been tipped to replace Forsyth as host, as has Daly's husband Vernon Kay.

McFly star Harry Judd was crowned champion of this year's Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday (December 17).
