Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Sir Bruce Forsyth Calls Darcey Bussell 'Dave' In Latest Gaffe

Strictly Come Dancing is a live broadcast, so there's no going back if something goes wrong on-air - and last night Sir Bruce Forsyth made a spectacular gaffe as he went to the judges for comments following the performance of Fiona Fullerton and Anton Du Beke.

The legendary host called Darcey Bussell 'Dave' when asking for her critique, but the acclaimed ballerina took it in good humour as she corrected him, and he blamed his cue card.

Making light of the situation, Brucie went on to call Bruno Tonioni 'Fred' and Len Goodman 'George'.

It was possibly a welcome distraction for Fiona, who was being savaged for a Charleston that the judges claimed lacked the right attack. They finished in joint third-from-bottom, ahead of only Mark Benton and Iveta Lukosiute, and Dave Meyers and Karen Hauer.

Natalie Gumede, however, continued to soar, collecting 38 points from the judges, and the first 10s of the series.

Abbey Clancy, Patrick Robinson and Susanna Reid all logged 34 points, while Ashley Taylor-Dawson polled 33.

Rugby ace Ben Cohen scored 32 for a red-hot shirtless routine, while Rachel Riley scored 30 and Sophie Ellis-Bextor struggled with Fiona on 28.
