Sir Bruce Forsyth: ONE thing Strictly Come Dancing host didn't like about show REVEALED

Lionel, a legendary entertainer, joined Ruth Langford, 47, and Eamonn Holmes, also 47, on the ITV show this morning to share his memories of his longtime friend, Sir Bruce Forsyth, who sadly passed away on Friday at the age of 89.

On the subject of Sir Bruce’s famous role as Strictly Come Dancing host, Lionel, 88, admitted there was one thing about the BBC dance competition that the much-loved TV star wasn’t keen on.

“The one thing, he loved Strictly of course,” Lionel said. “But the one thing he didn’t like was the floor between him and the audience. He missed being able to almost touch them. 

“He loved that, the closeness of the audience,” he added.

The actor and tap dancer paid tribute to “Mr Magic”, remembering his warm charisma and infectious joy.

“I  always felt like I was his favourite,” he told the This Morning hosts. “Only because he made everyone feel like that.

“He was just wonderful, he was a wonderful performer in everything he did.”

Lionel also made a shocking confession about a rather naughty day he and Sir Bruce spent together, with them making a visit to the sex shop Ann Summers.

“We said we had to buy naughty presents for certain friends,” he recalled, a cheeky grin spreading across his face. “We went to underwear shop Ann Summers. But we laughed so much we got thrown out!”

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
