Britain's most well-known and experienced TV entertainer, Bruce Forsyth, dies at home 89 following previous ill health from a chest infection. His family friends and fans pay tribute to him online.
Bruce Forsyth has been one of the most recognisable faces as a presenter on UK TV for 3 generations. Whether you were watching him in the 50s or since the millennium you will know him as one of the most lively and funny personalities in broadcasting.
Known for his smart dressing, dancing and snappy one-liners such as the iconic, "Nice to see you, to see you nice!". He will be remembered as much for his catch-phrases as he will be for being the star of British programming for several decades.
His first big TV show was Saturday Night at the Palladium and he just got more and more successful and wealthier right up to recent times when he was the frontman of Strictly Come Dancing. His unique brand of charisma and laughter on our screens will be sorely missed by all real British TV fans.
