'Strictly Come Dancing': Sir Bruce Forsyth Returns With Tess Daly For Children In Need Special

Brucie's Ba-ack...

Sir Bruce Forsyth is to re-unite with Tess Daly on Friday night for a ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ special, which will see junior ballroom dancers taking to the stage for the first time as part of Children In Need.


Four of the show’s professional dancers have teamed up with four young ballroom champions to perform two special routines for the BBC fundraiser, hoping to wow the judges and take home the Pudsey glitterball trophy.

Anton du Beke and Natalie Lowe will be performing with mini-me dancers Elliot and Mia as Team Glitter, while Tristan MacManus and Aliona Vilani make up Team Sparkle with youngsters Daniel and Ella.

The two teams will be performing routines to ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’ and ‘Happy Feet’.

This will mark the first time Brucie has co-hosted ‘Strictly’ since he stepped down as presenter of the series earlier this year.

He has since been replaced by former ‘It Takes Two’ host Claudia Winkelman, who will sadly miss her third week hosting ‘Strictly’ in a row on Saturday night to be with her daughter, who suffered severe burns in an accident on Halloween.

Bruce and Tess will team up once again for this year’s ‘Strictly’ Christmas special, which will see a host of former contestants, including Rachel Stevens, Louis Smith and Lisa Riley, returning to the dance-floor.
