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."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
