Bruce Forsyth has revealed that he is hurt by criticisms of his performance on 'Strictly Come Dancing' this year.

The 80-year-old TV host said he is unsure how long he will continue with the show after struggling with the most recent series.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: "When you're 80 you don't have many plans for the future. So we'll have to see what happens.

"This series has been particularly hard, especially with all the criticism I've had to face. If I make a mistake I'm labelled as being doddery and not up to it."

His co-host Tess Daly recently insisted that he is 'brilliant' on the show.
