It is with sadness that I report Sir Bruce Joseph Forsyth-Johnson CBE - better known as Bruce Forsyth - has passed away at the age of 89.
A statement from his management team's spokesperson, Ian Wilson, has released the following: "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".
Sir Bruce's career spanned for more than 75 years hosting legendary game shows such as; The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, You Bet and The Price Is Right all of which gave us a Brucie Bonus in their own right.
He's probably best known for co-presenting BBC's Strictly Come Dancing with Tess Daly between 2004 and 2013.
His family are thankful and have said the following: "the many people who have sent cards and letters to Bruce wishing him well over his long illness and know that they will share in part, the great, great loss they feel".
No further comment will be made at this time, Sir Bruce's family would like their privacy to be respected "at this most difficult time".
