Strictly Come Dancing stars ‘feel Sir Bruce Forsyth’s ghost in the studio’

THE ghost of Sir Bruce Forsyth is haunting the Strictly Come Dancing studio, according to BBC sources – though paranormal experts have reassured staff and viewers that it is most likely benevolent.

The moustached dancer and TV favourite passed away aged 89 in August, and now it’s reported a “friendly presence” is being felt around the famous dancefloor.

The tapping of Sir Bruces shoes have been heard creeping about the Strictly studio

Sir Bruce, who was buried on September 4, hosted the programme until 2013 and those familiar with poltergeists and ghouls have said it’s “not unreasonable” to believe he’s returned to his former place of work.

A BBC insider, who’s heard the familiar tap of Sir Bruce’s shoes, told The Daily Star: “It’s hard to put a finger on it, it’s just a feeling.

“The best way to describe it would be friendly presence.”

Meanwhile ghosthunter Mark Smith commented to the paper that Sir Bruce, who “loved being in the public eye”, could well be drifting back into the studio.

He said: “When we pass away the soul returns to the place we were happiest at in the physical world.

“For Bruce that could be at the BBC…

“It’s up to people whether they want to believe it is Bruce but it’s not unreasonable to think it could be.”

Adding some much-needed reassurance, Mark advised: “There is no reason for anybody to be scared.

“Bruce was not scary in life so there is no reason his spirit will be scary or want to harm anyone. He may have just come to say hello.”

It’s clear father-of-six Sir Bruce felt sore about having to leave Strictly when he did as he told Loose Women in 2015: “Whoever leaves a show at the top? Well I did.

“It was time for me to go, and there are other things to do.”

Sir Bruce was in showbiz for a whopping 75 years but eventually fell prey to ill health.

In March 2017, he spent five days in intensive care when he came down with a severe chest infection.

Then a few months before his death he suffered two life-threatening aneurysms, leaving him bed-bound and forcing him to cancel a string of public appearances.
