Alliance & Leicester International has foxtrotted towards the top of the offshore savings market with the launch of a new range of offshore fixed rate bonds.,/P>

With Strictly Come Dancing's Bruce Forsyth having to take a pay cut on the chin, the entertainer extraordinaire might consider making up some of the shortfall by turning to these bonds.

The six month and the two year fixed rate bond are both amongst the market leaders in their fields, paying 3.25% and 4.00% respectively.

A minimum of £25K is needed for investment in the six month bond, while a post-pay cut friendly level of £10K is needed for the two year version.

Neither bond allows further additions or early access, making it essential you work out at the start exactly what you can afford to stash away for the given term.

While wishing we could give the bonds a hearty, Len Goodman-esque "Seven!", four out five Moneyfacts stars will have to suffice.
