'Strictly Come Dancing' host Tess Daly thinks the decision by show bosses to cut the number of couples on the programme is a positive move

Tess Daly thinks cutting the number of dancers will improve 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The presenter - who fronts the celebrity dance contest alongside TV veteran Bruce Forsyth - is excited about the changes being made to the show for the next series, including a reduction in the number of couples taking part.

She said: "I think it's because we want a really strong series, with a strong cast of celebrities. We're going for quality here! There are exciting changes afoot.

"There's been talk of rotating the dancers in the future and so hopefully they'll compete again. They haven't had the chop - they're still part of the family."

The 41-year-old beauty also laughed off speculation her co-host Bruce is set to quit the show, insisting he will always be dogged by rumours because of his advancing years.

She added to New! magazine: "Brucie is like a big kid - he's always looking for the gag in every sentence. That's part of what keeps him young. At the end of the day, he's 82 years old and has the energy of a 20 year old!

"I love my Brucie! But there have been rumours he's going to leave since the first series. Showbiz is in his blood - he lives and breathes it. As long as he's physically able, why would he give up a job he absolutely loves?"
