Bruce impressed by Vaughan's moves

Lancashire Telegraph: Sir Bruce Forsyth reckons cricketer Michael Vaughan is one to watch Sir Bruce Forsyth reckons cricketer Michael Vaughan is one to watch

Sir Bruce Forsyth has revealed how impressed he has been by cricketer Michael Vaughan on Strictly Come Dancing.

The former England cricket captain has improved dramatically as the series has gone on, and while Brucie never reveals his favourites, he tipped Michael as one to watch.

Sir Bruce told The Sun: "I think that is the most exciting part of the show. The improvement of somebody who hasn't got a clue."

The 84-year-old entertainer also revealed his annual week off from Strictly was interrupted this year because his wife, former Miss World Wilnelia, slipped a disc.

He said: "The weekend was for me to have a break but in the end I didn't because my wife had this pinched nerve."

Sir Bruce did hint that he may be ready to retire from the BBC show next year.

He said: "What I've done for the last five years is go on my winter break from the end of December to the beginning of April then see how I feel about everything.

"I've told my wife that if I do a really bad show, to tell me. But I think I'd know myself."

Sir Bruce added: "When I walk on the studio floor, or out onstage, I immediately become 34. Fifty years go just like that."
