Sir Bruce Forsyth wants to bring back game show 'Play Your Cards Right' because he had such "fun" presenting the programme

Sir Bruce Forsyth wants to bring back game show 'Play Your Cards Right'.

The 85-year-old presenter is keen for the programme - which he hosted in the 1980s and 1990s - to return to TV because he had such "fun" presenting it, but he has ruled out fronting a new version of 'The Generation Game' because he found it "too much hard work".

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "'Play Your Cards Right' was such a fun show; I wouldn't mind doing 'Play Your Cards Right' again. It was a lot of fun.

"'Generation Game' was probably too much hard work. There was a lot of behind the scenes planning to get that right. 'The Generation Game' may seem dated now as there has been so many reality shows."

While he found The Generation Game's schedule tough, he had "fun" on the show, as he did on 'Play Your Cards Right', but the 'Strictly Come Dancing' co-host found he had limited opportunities to enjoy himself on game show 'The Price is Right', which he hosted from 1995 to 2001.

He added: "'The Price is Right' - there was no chance to have fun. On 'Play Your Cards Right' there was. I was talking to the contestants all the time. So I could have fun in 'Play Your Cards Right'. In 'The Generation Game' I could have fun. But 'The Price is Right' I couldn't."

Bruce returned to the stage for the first time in more than 10 years this month for a spectacular performance of comedy and music in Manchester, Birmingham and London.

Bruce's remaining theatre tour dates:

May 30, 2013 - Symphony Hall, Birmingham

June 3, 2013 - Royal Albert Hall, London
