Let Claudia Winkleman fill Bruce Forsyth's shoes on Strictly Come Dancing: call

By LAURA HARDING

Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli has revealed he would like the show's stand-in host Claudia Winkleman to replace Sir Bruce Forsyth.

He said he would like to see her continue her on-screen partnership with Tess Daly when the BBC1 programme returns in the autumn.

Sir Bruce announced earlier this month that he was stepping down from the live shows after a decade-long reign on the contest, presenting alongside Daly.

Tonioli said: "Personally, when Tess and Claudia did the show they know how it works, they are part of the family.

"Strictly Come Dancing is almost like an institution itself now in Britain, and I would be very, very happy for them, but it's not my show. But I'll be delighted to have Tess and Claudia."
