Bruce Forsyth heading to the stage

Sir Bruce Forsyth has proved he has no plans to retire post-Strictly Come Dancing, after announcing a series of live theatre shows.

The 86-year-old veteran TV performer has just stepped down from his role presenting Strictly after 11 years, but insisted: "This isn't Brucie walking into the sunset."

Now Sir Bruce has revealed he will perform three dates of his Bruce Forsyth Entertains! show across the UK in May and June of this year.

Following on from his performances at the Royal Albert Hall and Glastonbury festival, the shows will see Brucie entertain with an evening of comedy, piano, dance and song.

He will be joined by guest musicians for the performances, which are overseen by musical directors Don Hunt and Dave Arch.

Bruce will appear at The Mayflower Theatre in Southampton on May 11, The Bristol Hippodrome on June 1 and Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall on June 7.
