Posted on the facebook page (and no doubt on the BBC web page), Bruce is still too ill to host it, so it will be Tess and Claudia who record it next week.
(didn't get tickets again here!)

Strictly Come Dancing: Sir Bruce Forsyth is NOT doing Christmas special due to ill health

BROADCASTING veteran Sir Bruce Forsyth will not be taking part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special, as he's been deemed too unwell to present the show.

Bruce Forsyth can no longer present Strictly special
The 87-year-old has failed to make a full recovery from his recent keyhole surgery, meaning he has had to pull out of co-presenting the festive edition of the dancing contest, alongside Tess Daly.

The BBC issued a statement on Thursday morning, which read: "The Strictly Christmas Special, which records next week, will be too early for Sir Bruce Forsyth to have made a full recovery from his recent operation.

"Due to the long studio hours, he is unable to host the show but will still play a part in the production.

"Sir Bruce will record a special video message for this year's celebrity line-up and the viewers at home."
     

The BBC also added that Claudia Winkleman - who replaced Sir Bruce on the Strictly main show in 2014 - will step into his place for the seasonal episode.

The entertaining legend underwent surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurysm last month, after the condition was reportedly discovered during check-ups after Sir Bruce suffered a fall.

His manager, Ian Wilson, told the BBC: "The procedure was a complete success and while Sir Bruce needs to rest and recuperate, it is anticipated, given the minimally invasive nature of this operation, he will make a speedy recovery."

The Strictly Christmas Special airs on BBC One on Christmas Day at 6:15pm.

I expect it was Harry or the soldier.
