Strictly: Door open for Brucie

Sir Bruce Forsyth could be returning for another series of Strictly Come Dancing after BBC bosses reportedly said he can host the hit show for as long as he likes.

The 83-year-old entertainer has just finished filming this year's series, and show sources have revealed they're assuming he'll be back next year.

An insider told The Sun: "Bruce has had a great series and Strictly is his as long as he wants it. He's having a break then will come back to us with his thoughts on next year's show.

"We are working on the assumption he'll be back."

The presenter, who was knighted earlier this year, is understood to be spending the Christmas holidays in Puerto Rico, the birthplace of his wife Wilnelia.

Earlier this week Vernon Kay revealed Sir Bruce had given his blessing for the younger star to take over as host of Play Your Cards Right.

The Family Fortunes host is filming a pilot revival of Brucie's classic game show for ITV1.
