I wouldn't bet on it, he takes over all the shows he is on.  Did you see him on Have I Got News for You recently?  It should have been renamed Have I Got Bruce Forsyth. 

But that is a different type of show and humour it what it is about. I have just read an article over on Digital Spy and without giving the game away apparently what he found did upset him a bit so those that are giving this a wide berth could miss out.

I don't count myself among his fans - but please don't dismiss the programme out of hand - many of the most fascinating episodes have been those concerning people many of us thought we couldn't be bothered with.

If you usually Sky+ it, and you think it will record simply because you sky+ and series linked the American version the other day, check it! I've just checked mine and it was a good job I did, or it wouldn't have recorded.  :o

My wife watched a programme called "Living with Brucie" on Channel 4 last night.  Although I was using the computer at the time I could not miss hearing him being overbearing, getting his own way and in one incident having quite a hissy fit with one of the locals near his house in Porto Rica.  He came over as not a particularly likeable man.

I think I am actually looking forward to it. I tolerated Jeremy Clarkson's repulsive humor to hear his stories, I don't see why old irritating Brucie should be an exception.

I certainly plan to watch it.

I shan't be able to watch it as I shall be on a caravan site, which I am fairly sure has no wi-fi. I can't stand the man and what I dread most is him tracing his Forsyth line back to Duffus in Morayshire, where mine came from. I really don't want him as a relation, no matter how far removed! :o :o

I can't stand Graham Norton, but the episode in which he featured turned out, I thought, to be very interesting  ;D
