Healthy Forsyth back on Strictly

Claudia Winkleman, Ronnie Corbett and Tess Daly
Ronnie Corbett was the surprise host last week

Veteran TV presenter Bruce Forsyth is well enough to host this weekend's Strictly Come Dancing, after missing last week's because of flu.

A BBC spokesman said: "Bruce is feeling better, so we're delighted that he'll be back at the helm of this Saturday's Strictly Come Dancing alongside Tess."

Last weekend Daly was joined by Claudia Winkleman and comedian Ronnie Corbett.

It was the first time Forsyth had missed a show since Strictly Come Dancing began on BBC One in 2004.

It was announced last Friday that the star was not well enough to present and was missing work "on doctor's orders".
