Veteran entertainer and presenter of many successful TV shows, Sir Bruce Forsyth dies at the age of 89. He has been sick for some time and was in hospital earlier this year after a severe chest infection.
His long career in showbiz began when he was aged just 14. He rose to become Britain’s best-paid TV star, famous for hosting game shows like The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and The Price is Right. He also presented BBC One’s Strictly with Tess Daly from 2004 to 2014.
Before his death, Sir Bruce had not been seen in public due to ill health. He was too frail to attend the funerals of close friends Ronnie Corbett and Sir Terry Wogan last year.
In 2015, he underwent keyhole surgery after suffering two aneurysms, which were discovered following a fall at his Surrey home.
