14 November 2014 12:38 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sir Bruce Forsyth has made a comeback to Strictly Come Dancing for Children in Need tonight (November 14).

The legendary host made his return to the ballroom alongside Tess Daly, for a competition that paired two teams of professional dancers with juniors.

Team Sparkle was comprised of professionals Tristan MacManus and Aliona Vilani with juniors Daniel and Ella, while pros Anton du Beke and Natalie Lowe danced with juniors Elliot and Mia as Team Glitter.

Both squads received rave reviews from judges, with Bruno Tonioli calling them all "supernovas of ballroom".

"I've missed you more than I thought," Forsyth then quipped.

Even the usually-harsh Craig Revel Horwood added: "I wasn't impressed - and I'll tell you why. I couldn't find one thing wrong with it!"

It came down to a vote from the judges, as Revel Horwood and Tonioli supported Team Sparkle. Darcey Bussell registered her support for Team Glitter.

19 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tim Wonnacott and his professional partner Natalie Lowe are the third couple to leave Strictly Come Dancing.

The Bargain Hunt expert and Lowe found themselves in the dance-off alongside Mark Wright and Karen Hauer.

The bottom two acts were decided through a combination of viewer votes and judges' scores.

Wonnacott and Lowe performed their paso doble to Tina Turner's 'Simply the Best', while Wright and Hauer danced a quickstep to 'Tiger Feet' by Mud.

Wright's quickstep originally earned him a score of 29 during yesterday's (October 18) show, while Wonnacott's performance got him a 19.

Judges Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell both took the decision to save Wright and Hauer, with Bruno Tonioli sealing their fate.

"The white knight won the challenge," Tonioli stated.

Wonnacott said: "It's a great treat to be on a programme like Strictly. For an old geezer like me - who comes along in his 64th year and he's slightly portly, »

6 things we saw on set at Strictly Come Dancing's Movie Week

13 October 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

A staggering 1.6 million people have applied for tickets to see Strictly Come Dancing live at Elstree Studios this year - which means that Digital Spy was ridiculously excited to be asked along to watch Movie Week unfold right before our eyes on Saturday (October 11).

And while we all saw Frankie Bridge's incredible paso, Donny Osmond's phobia of scores under 5 and Jennifer Gibney hanging up her dancing shoes, here's some things you didn't see on BBC One...

1. Wardrobe issues

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman looked absolutely spiffing in their garb on both shows. However, comfortable they were not. Before Strictly went live on Saturday, they both walked out to say hello and wish everyone luck. Well, we say walked. Clauds hobbled erratically all over the dancefloor, tugging at her behind at least 10 times and declaring to the whole of the studio that her (several pairs of) Spanx were chaffing up a storm. »

Strictly Come Dancing's Tim Wonnacott: 'Stick with the oldies'

27 September 2014 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tim Wonnacott has said that Strictly Come Dancing viewers should not dismiss older contestants as serious contenders.

At 63, the Bargain Hunt presenter is the oldest celebrity competing in the new series, which kicked off this weekend.

Wonnacott, who scored 18 out of 40 for his cha-cha, has advised fans not to rubbish his chances against the younger celebrities in the competition.

"There have been older, I think, but not by much," he said. "The thing is you must not write off the older people.

"The older people bring - I think the older people bring a degree of experience which some of these youngsters just won't have had, and they may look lean and muscular and sinewy and willowy and all the rest of it but actually that can belie things.

"Stick with the oldies, that's my motto."

26 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ready to dazzle us again this autumn, series 12 of Strictly Come Dancing is on the horizon.

15 more celebrities are preparing to strap on some sequins and slap on the fake tan, all in the name of Saturday night entertainment.

Here's everything we know so far about the biggest British TV show's return:

1. When is it back?

The BBC are always particularly coy and prickly about confirming the start dates of TV shows, but a simple look at the official site for audience tickets reveals that the first two shows of the series will air on Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27.

The Launch Show will air, as usual, three weeks earlier. Due to some funny little show called Tumble, it looks like the Launch Show will air on a Sunday this year, on September 7.

That is the show where the celebrities meet the partners for the first time, and it's also »
