Tess Daly's Bruce Forsyth shine

Share article:

Tess Daly has a shrine for the late Sir Bruce Forsyth outside her dressing room at the "Strictly Come Dancing" studios.

The 48-year-old TV presenter - who co-hosted the ballroom and Latin show alongside the legendary star from 2004 until 2013 - was left devastated when the comedian passed away at the age of 89 in August last year.

The blonde beauty now hosts the programme alongside Claudia Winkleman but, to ensure her late pal is always with her in spirit, she has a photograph of the pair of them - taken five years ago - hanging up at the Elstree studio.

Speaking to Woman magazine, she said: "It was taken about four years ago, just before we started our last series together.

"The photographer did this lovely thing where he took pictures of high-profile people and asked them to close their eyes.

"I got it blown up and it's just outside my dressing room at Elstree - so I see it when I go to the studio floor. It's gorgeous because we were having fun."

Tess has hinted she may not present the popular BBC One show for much longer because she'd like to spend the winters in New Zealand.

She said recently: "Every time we visit my sister Karen in New Zealand, I spend the next two months Googling properties and dreaming of escaping the British winter. It's summer over there, and it's gorgeous.

"I miss my sister terribly, because we're so close.

"I love the laid-back way of life. The people are friendly, the food's incredible, the climate's great, the landscape is beautiful."

And if Tess" kids Amber, eight, and Phoebe, 13, whom she has with husband Vernon Kay, have anything to do with it, they'll live there permanently.

She said: "My youngest is forever saying to me, "Mummy, can we please move to New Zealand, because I just want to be near my cousins?" It breaks my heart. I grew up with my cousins so close by."
