Sad to report that the TV and showbiz legend Sir Bruce Forsyth has died aged 89.
His family confirmed that the national treasure, veteran performer and TV presenter – who fronted Strictly Come Dancing from 2004-2014 – passed away on Friday, after being unwell for some time.
‘It is with great sadness that the Forsyth family announce that Sir Bruce passed away this afternoon, peacefully at his home surrounded by his wife Wilnelia and all his children,’ his manager Ian Wilson said in a statement.
It’s great to see he kept his sense of humour right until the end.
‘A couple of weeks ago, a friend visited him and asked him what he had been doing these last 18 months. ‘With a twinkle in his eye, he responded: “I’ve been very, very busy…being ill!”.’ Rest in Peace Bruce
