It’s not everyday you get to go indoor skydiving with Tess Daly. But I did this week. Promoting the fact Maltesers are donating cash every time you buy a pack to Comic Relief we hopped to Milton Keynes to Airkix for our sky dive challenge. Tess told me she believes the public outcry for her Strictly Come Dancing partner Bruce Forsyth to be Knighted is hindering his chances altogether. She said: “I can’t believe he wasn’t in the New Year’s Honour’s List this year. Brucie believes if everyone shuts up about it then he will get it. But he should have got it years ago. He thoroughly deserves it and for me, Vernon and the kids he’s like family. He leaves the funniest voicemails on our phone at home saying ‘Hello it’s Brucie’” Tess, who’s in talks with the BBC about presenting a brand new fashion and style show, also admits there’s no way Bruce with retire from the show that’s now entering it’s eighth year. Tess added: “Bruce won’t retire. There’s no need for him to bow out until he physically can’t handle the schedule. “He’s still happy on the show and loves it. And also why should he leave just because of his age on paper? Bruce will be involved in Strictly for many years to come.” Good to hear!
