JLC On Bruce

Justin Lee Collins has expressed how disappointed he was to interview Bruce Forsyth on his BBC Three Strictly sister show during the first series.

He told BBC News: "As legendary as he is - I grew up loving him, as did my parents, as did my grandparents - he wasn't particularly nice to me on that show. I loved him and they do say never meet your idols because you're always going to be disappointed and in the case of Bruce I was disappointed. He was very rude."

But he thinks Alesha was a good choice to be a new judge: "The only one on that panel with any technical knowledge is Len Goodman, as he's the only one with any ballroom dancing experience. Alesha is just as qualified, if not more so, to comment on the dances than Craig and Bruno because she's done it and she's won it. And she's got personality bursting out of her every pore."
