Sir Bruce Forsyth has pulled out of hosting the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special for health reasons.
The veteran presenter underwent a procedure on an abdominal aortic aneurysm last month.
The Christmas Day show is set to be recorded next week, but a BBC statement said it was too soon for Sir Bruce “to have made a full recovery”.
“Due to the long studio hours, he is unable to host the show, but will still play a part in the production.”
The BBC confirmed that Strictly regular Claudia Winkleman will host alongside Tess Daly, in his place.
