To wish Bruce Forsyth could be humanely dispatched

In fact, not bothered about the humane bit.

He is beyond embarrassing on Strictly with his forced, stilted jokes which aren't even funny.

He is well past his sell by date.

Does anyone actually like him?

Why does he keep getting the gig?

That's a vile thing to say.

I like him.

Strictly was so much better last week with Tess and Claudia. Don't wish the man any harm, but he is not the best person for the job.

YANBU at all! Can't stand him, find him cringe worthy to watch and he ruins a programme I otherwise really love. I think it's time he retired- but it looks unlikely anytime soon.

Yabu. I like him. He is old fashioned & reminds me a little bit of my step dad.

newestbridearound Sat 12-Oct-13 18:40:06

I should add I also don't wish the man any harm; I just wish he would get off the telly!

Bearbehind Sat 12-Oct-13 18:40:10

I don't actually wish him any harm, just wish he'd be put out to pasture.

Only if the Daley woman gets to go as well grin

You dreadful person you'll never go to heaven now after saying that!

TheWomanTheyCallJayne Sat 12-Oct-13 18:41:50

I would like him gone but it's not an age thing. I've always found hi irritating

Bearbehind Sat 12-Oct-13 18:42:21

I think heaven was well outside of my grasp before this!

SoleSource Sat 12-Oct-13 18:43:09

I agree but no harm come to him please!

Unfunny, irritating and clumsy presenting style.


GeeTeeEff Sat 12-Oct-13 18:43:43

I don't watch SCD but caught a bit last week and was shocked he was still presenting it. What age is he? He must be at least 115.

ChanelTunel Sat 12-Oct-13 18:44:37

He's a sweetheart. Why should anyone be put out to pasture,when they're not negative and dull?

GiveItYourBestShot Sat 12-Oct-13 18:45:35

I'm sorry, I laughed at the book joke blush

angryangryyoungwoman Sat 12-Oct-13 18:45:40

I agree, but I think tess 'dead behind the eyes' Daly should go too.

RustyHalo Sat 12-Oct-13 18:45:49

Definitely time for him to retire. Love Claudia & wish she was on every Saturday.

Bearbehind Sat 12-Oct-13 18:48:27

If a new, unknown presenter was as bad as he is, they'd be out on their ear.

His jokes are just embarrassingly cringeworthy.

RustyBear Sat 12-Oct-13 18:49:24

He's 85, but he's been performing since he was a child, so it seems longer.

Visadiva Sat 12-Oct-13 18:49:39

I like him. Can't bear Tess Daly.

Well, he's a couple of years young than Her Majesty the Queen.

He mght iirritate some, but he's still well capable of hosting a light entertainment show.

Bearbehind Sat 12-Oct-13 18:54:33

To be fair, if this series was just Ben Cohen for the whole show, I'd be a happy bunny- how fit is he?

TidyDancer Sat 12-Oct-13 18:55:09

Can't stand him or the Daly beast. They wreck Strictly for me.
