Bruce Forsyth Reckons Britain’s Got Talent Shouldn’t Include Kids


Bruce Forsyth Ant and Dec

British television legend Bruce Forsyth – current presenter of Strictly Come Dancing – has announced that children shouldn’t be allowed on Britain’s Got Talent.

"I don't think they should put children on that are too young. If you're going to do that, have a separate show. Have a children's show, British Children Have Talent," Forsyth told The Mail on Sunday. "To put little children through that kind of an ordeal, I think that is wrong. I think it was last year some poor little girl of about 11 was crying her eyes out on there. I don't think that's entertainment." BGT – hosted by Ant and Dec – has become one of the most popular shows on television as it pits contestants against each other in singing, dancing, magic tricks or even dog shows. Forsyth, too, has become a British staple over the years. Speaking of his return to Strictly Come Dancing, he added: "It's looking like I'll definitely be doing it and I'm looking forward to it." Forsyth recently revealed that he wants Ant & Dec to replace him on Strictly if he quits.

"So many people have been put in the frame, but I'd love Ant and Dec to do it. I think they'd do an amazing job," he said, fully endorsing the Geordie pair, who rose to prominence with their cheeky antics on Byker Grove and their musical styling as PJ & Duncan.

Ant And Dec Plotting American Saturday Night Takeaway


Ant and Dec

For all Ant and Dec’s huge success on British TV, we must admit we’ve never really envisioned them crossing over to an American audience. For one thing their brand of humour feels very British in itself and, for another, Cheryl Cole’s disastrous attempt to make it on the new X Factor stateside went awry for, among other reasons, people struggling to understand her Geordie accent.

Nevertheless, it’s become public knowledge that the duo are indeed discussing a move to America, where they’ll be taking their Saturday evening entertainment show Saturday Night Take Away with them. They did try taking on America back on 2009, as STV points out, but their show Wanna Bet? lasted only six episodes before being cut due to poor ratings. However they clearly feel their luck has changed and, speaking on television, Declan Donnelly addressed the speculation. “There's murmurings and there's talk about [the US] and obviously it's done so well here” he said, of the show that’s in its 10th series in the UK. “There's only two left of the current run here, so there's talk about it. I don't know, I think it would be great, it would be fun to do in the States – Takeaway would be amazing out there. It's a big country - lots of people, lots of fun you could have - so who knows?"

Elsewhere, the pair could be set to top the UK singles charts with their 1993 hit ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’ after they performed the song on last weekend’s ‘Takeaway. Bookies William Hill have them at 8/13 to succeed.

Doh! One Direction Caught Out By Ant And Dec Prank


One Direction Ant and Dec

UK boy band One Direction were well and truly fooled by Geordie presenting duo Ant and Dec when they filmed a segment for Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway show recently. In fact, they were so fooled by one of the TV pair’s pranks that they ended up phoning an ambulance for a man that they believed to be their biggest fan, who had collapsed during a meeting with them.

According to a story in the Evening Standard, Ant revealed that he and Dec both dressed up as men claiming to be One Direction’s biggest fans. “Dec dressed up as one called Jack from New Zealand and I was Ben, a TV host from there… introduced him to the group – and the meeting didn’t go as planned. But they fell for it. I faked an asthma attack. They panicked and I hyperventilated.. They called medical emergencies. It was such fun and they fell for it.” As if that wasn’t enough, they played another prank on the boys, when Ant “accidentally” left his microphone on, so that Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn and Louis had to listen to him discussing which one of them he thought was the sexiest. We’ll bet that was a pretty embarrassing few moments while it lasted.

If you like the sound of watching One Direction go red in the face with embarrassment, then you could do worse than to tune in to Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, which will be broadcast on Saturday (March 23, 2013).
