Sir Bruce Forsyth is set to present a new show, 'Bruce Forsyth's Hall of Fame', on BBC One just months after quitting 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Sir Bruce Forsyth is to return to TV to present a one-off variety show on BBC One.
Sir Bruce - who quit his role as presenter of 'Strictly Come Dancing' earlier this year - says that his new show, 'Bruce Forsyth's Hall of Fame', will give comedians, singers and actors an opportunity to "emulate their heroes" by performing in front of a live audience.
News of Sir Bruce's return is sure to attract plenty of attention, and has certainly excited Jane Lush, the former commissioner of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
She said: "I couldn't be more excited to be working again with Sir Bruce exactly 10 years since we first embarked on the 'Strictly Come Dancing' adventure together."
Jane - who is to make the show through her new company Ka looki Pictures - added that she hopes the show will become an established brand in the coming years.
Sir Bruce, meanwhile, admitted recently that leaving 'Strictly' left him "mentally and physically" exhausted.
However, it's clear that he retains an enthusiasm to work and will be reappearing on screens later this year.
