Bruce: I said no to Strictly offer

BBC newsreader Fiona Bruce has revealed she turned down the chance to star in Strictly Come Dancing because it is too "formal".

The broadcaster is regularly touted as a contender for the dance show.

"I've always said no," she said. "Not because I'm snotty about it but that structured formal dancing is so not me. I just want to get down on the dancefloor."

Bruce has presented flagship shows, including the News At Six, Crimewatch, Call My Bluff and Antiques Roadshow.
