I wonder how many times he'll tell someone it's nice to see them, to see them nice...

It can't be much worse than the American ones which have been on recently though in my opinion. Even Brucie won't spend the whole programme saying "oh my gooood" (with varying quantities of o's).

My worry with Bruce is that he'll be telling them all about his family,rather than the other way round.
Anyone watching him tonight?  ;D

Dervla is so obviously Irish,so one would expect her family history to be all Irish LOL

Now I quite like Dervla... so variety   --- cannot watch tonight, but they are tempting me by saying he does shoe/w (whoops freudian slip of the finger there?!?!?) his true character... so may tape it for later.

Who would you really like to see on WDYTYA.....?

and who would you hate to see?

My likes.... uhm  .... uhm .... uhm... oh dear.... cant think...  USA Neil Diamond   oooo hhhh yes...
UK   nobody jumps out at me...

but lots of oh no's   tooo many to mention.

No Politicians, No self styled narcissicstititcs (cant spell it) celebs -  i better go... before I get carted off.

I know Forsyth has many supporters/admirers as he detractors.  You can count me among the latter; quite honestly I can not stand this living wax work!!  Obviously this will be the first WDYTYA I will miss.

He is OK and you can't deny that he has done well to still be in the entertainment business after all these years but for someone to not watch the show because they don't like him is plain daft, this is going to be about his family, not him.

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.

I, too, am in the non-fan club. But I shall grit my teeth and watch it - the trailer looked quite good, and the interviewer actually got a few words in edgeways...  ::)
