Jim Davidson says Sir Bruce Forsyth "needs ironing" before he appears on TV.

The comedian has mocked his fellow veteran entertainer by suggesting he needs to retire, saying he is "hanging on" to his career despite getting older.

He told the Sunday People newspaper: "You don't want me on [Saturday night TV] not. You don't really want Bruce. He's hanging on really. No-one really wants Bruce on there, do they?

"But they have him there so they can say, 'How dare you say we're ageist?' But look at Bruce - he needs ironing before the show."

The 'Celebrity Big Brother' champion's comments won't endear himself to the entire nation, but he doesn't mind - and has insisted his win on the reality show won't make people think of him any differently.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, he said: "They way I'm talked about on TV won't change. People will always write what they want and say what they want.

"You can't please everybody all of the time. But I don't really care about them. I've never met the people who think I'm horrible."

Brucey will keep going till he drops. He's witty and funny and even though this makes him look more silly as time has gone on, still makes for great TV. I'd be interested to know Brucey's opinion of Davidson and the "younger generation"!!
