Strictly Come Dancing host Bruce Forsyth is very particular about how his socks are kept, according to his dedicated wife.
Wilnelia Merced, former Miss World and current Mrs Forsyth, said the all singing, all dancing star of the BBC is very particular about the preservation of his legwear.
She said: "Bruce is a perfectionist who believes socks
should be hand washed. I did it once, and everything came out blue. So now I don't have to. I think he does it to relax."
Ms Merced added that Brucie particularly hates it when socks
are balled together as it caused the elasticity of the hosiery to go, preferring them to be folded together more neatly.
It is rumoured that Bruce Forsyth is up for a knighthood, with bookmakers across the country slashing the odds for him to receive the honour from the Queen.
