I dont actually see how that could have spoilt the show for anyone....


It was just a funny moment and Bruce meant no harm
Exactly Tom Sir Bruce was just doing his job and keeping control with good humour

But they weren't rabble they were the contestants whose good cheer made the show what it was. Bruce's petulance towards them was uncalled for. Completely spoilt the last few minutes of the show for me - all I could hear was his rudeness.

It was good humoured control and order that Sir Bruce brought to the end of the show, much better than having another scrum holly

I am one of Bruce Forsythe's fans. However, realistically, he is now past his sell by date. Sorry Bruce - but it is the truth. However, I don't want Claudia in his place. Tess is OK and has grown in to the role.

When Bruce shows some respect to others then maybe he might receive some.

Respect is earned not demanded.

I'm sure I will be back before then Tom, Sir Bruce is not here to defend his legend reputation, and must rely on loyal fans in his absence, thanks for leading the way Tom

OK he is 84 and set in his ways a bit but for gods sake give this guy a break

He is one of the UK's all time all round Entertainers and deserves some respect
For God's sake, get some new glasses and look at a rerun. He behaved like an idiot, from poor start to bad finish. Tess did her best to cover up.

Bruce is rude, the show is not about him, it's about the dancing, and it's high time someone removed the word "legend" from any English dictionary if it is going to be so misused.

As Tom quite rightly say's, respect should be shown.

Respect should be earned, though. I admit in the past that Bruce has more than earned the respect he had but he's now throwing it away at a rapid rate by his approach on Strictly - he struggles to read the autocue, mumbles when he's trying to find something 'funny' to say, tells jokes that would be better suited to the 1970s and, albeit maybe inadvertently, often insults and provokes couples before they take to the floor with ill advised 'gags'. Tess gets a lot of flak on here but I feel sorry for her; not may presenters have to cover up so many mistakes on a live show before even starting their own job.

He was the right man for the job, no question about it. But everyone has their time to bow out gracefully (retirement wise) and Bruce's alarm clock went off a long time ago.
