See thisislondon.co.uk/lite B RUCE FORSYTH has done exactly the right thing in agree- ing to a 25 per cent pay cut for presenting Strictly Come Dancing, taking 500,000, down from 660,000. The 81-year-old showbiz veteran is a true professional who knows when hes on to a good thing. I doubt other telly divas will be quite so amenable about adjusting to these frugal times. Hilary, Archway BRUCIE was probably being paid too much but lets not lump him in with the other money-grabbing TV stars. He is a true legend, a great all-round entertainer who can sing, dance and be funny, too. Fran, Kentish Town AT lEAST Bruce is good at his job. The BBC is also paying enormous amounts to Jonathan Ross and Chris Moyles, who seem to do nothing but offend most of the public every time they open their mouths. Neil P, London THE BBC is a world-renowned broadcasting organisation. It needs to pay top dollar for top stars. Everyone is feeling frugal at the moment but theyll regret it when the BBC is a carbon copy of ITV with the likes of Holly Willoughby presenting everything. Owen, Tufnell Park HE IS getting 500,000 a year for approximately two months work. How can anyone justify that? Rafa, London WHAT a shame the BBC cant find anyone else to present Strictly. There must be young presenting talent out there who could benefit from big bucks. Forsyth isnt so much Nineties as so very Seventies. Lisa, SW16 THE BBC is falling apart in front of our eyes. Why cant it stick up for itself any more? Sad to see a national icon crumbling. GC, London BRUCIE is embarrassing to watch: stumbling over his lines and his jokes make me cringe. How about John Barrowman for Strictly? Jenny, Canning Town REMEMBER his Play Your Cards Right days: lower...lower...lower. Dominic, Walworth Textpoll Q: Are credit card firms unfair on customers?
