Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Sir Bruce Forsyth hints he may quit

Sir Bruce

Telly legend Sir Bruce Forsyth has hinted he may be about to quit Strictly Come Dancing.

The 85-year-old has been presenting the BBC one series since the first run almost 10 years ago.

Sir Brucie has always insisted he would not retire until he was ready, and the Beeb aren’t planning on axing him.

But speaking on Loose Women, he hinted that this year could see him bow out of the show, or at least take a smaller role.

He explained: "We've got a meeting [about the show] tomorrow. There could be some other little ways of doing it, because it is hard.

"I'm not getting any younger. This always comes up because of my age."

The BBC however are keen to keep the aging TV host as the show's frontman.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper recently: “Our hope is he will want to continue with Strictly.

“We love him and want him to keep doing it, although we understand he has to make a decision he is comfortable with.”

The eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing will air in the autumn, with names already linked to the series including former X Factor winner Joe McElderry and TOWIE's Mark Wright.
