Strictly Come Dancing 2012 host Sir Bruce Forsyth has insisted he's got no plans to retire.

The 84-year-old has been hosting the show alongside Tess Daly since the first series, and he's got no plans to stop now.

Having been on telly for over 50 years, Sir Brucie said: “I’m certainly not going to retire — that’s the last thing on my mind!

“It’s the buzz of working, people don’t understand. Although I am 84, walking on to a studio floor or the theatre stage, you get the adrenaline rush which is marvellous.”

Declaring the latest series the best ever, Sir Bruce continued: “Unless you’ve experienced the warmth of an audience, the achievement of getting your first laugh and entertaining them, singing, dancing and involving the audience, it keeps it all going.”

“Unless you’re in the industry, people don’t understand the buzz of working in front of an audience.

“Although I’m 84 years old, ­walking out on to a studio floor or on to the stage of theatre you get the adrenalin rush, which is ­marvellous. I hope I don’t ever run out of adrenalin."

He added: "I do prefer having an audience right in front of me and am really looking forward to getting back out on the stage for my shows.”
