The 86-year-old star - who agreed to return for one-off specials of the celebrity dance contest when he announced he was quitting the show last year - was forced to pull out of filming his variety show 'Bruce's Hall of Fame' after being hospitalised last week but it's now been confirmed he will be back on his feet in time for Children In Need.

Sir Bruce will host a special edition of 'Strictly' which will feature four stars from the BBC drama 'Call the Midwife'.

Jenny Agutter, Laura Main, Stephen McGann and Jack Ashton - who all star alongside current 'Strictly' contestant Helen George in the much-loved show - will be swapping their period costumes for fake tans and glitter when they take to the dance floor on November 13.

In addition to the special episode of 'Strictly', a number of other treats have also been planned for Children In Need.

Shane Richie, 51, will be returning to 'EastEnders' for a sing-a-long while comedian Harry Hill will give his take on the history of TV and 'The One Show presenters Alex Jones and Matt Baker will be doing a Ricky Horror show.

The charity event will also feature live performances from Ellie Goulding, Rod Stewart and Selena Gomez with Sir Terry Wogan,Tess Daly, Fearne Cotton, Rochelle Humes and Nick Grimshaw on board as hosts.

Sir Terry said: "We are looking forward to a mind-blowing evening of great entertainment on behalf of a great charity."
