Sir Bruce Forsyth says his performance on the Avalon stage at Glastonbury Festival was one of the "best experiences of my career".

The 85-year-old, who danced his way on stage to the Strictly Come Dancing theme tune, invited members of the public to join him on stage to perform to the 2,500 crowd.

"We were getting laughs where we don't usually get laughs. They were sensational," he said.

"I'm a bit shocked now because I didn't expect it to affect me so much. It was so emotional at the end; I wanted to grab them and give them a big hug because they were so happy and so friendly."

"I felt the same as Mick Jagger. He wasn't asked before either," he joked.

"It's been a wonderful week - in fact it's been a great year, ever since the knighthood it's been a wonderful time in my life and I wonder why I deserve it," he said. "I think I'm very lucky."
