The news that Sir Bruce is to be involved in the franchise launch has become a matter of grave concern to BBC Licence payers. A Corporation spokesman explained that it would in no way impact on the legendary all-round entertainers current role fronting 'Strictly'. In fact, it is believed that it may even compliment the current series, due to the average age of the viewers.
Mr Toby Lorone, speaking for the Swiss-based company, could not contain his delight at the capture of Sir Bruce. "At one point we were struggling to identify a suitable avenue into the UK market, even considering a Ch4 spin-off called 'Come Die With Me'. However, to secure Bruce for our initial BOGOF offer, is a real bonus".
