Sir Bruce Forsyth spent five nights in an intensive care unit after being struck down with a severe chest infection, according to reports.
The legendary 89-year-old television personality was rushed to the hospital Sunday night and remained in intensive care until last night.
He is expected to move to a private room today before returning home with his wife, Lady Wilnelia.
A family friend told the Daily Mail:
Bruce came down with an infection last weekend, and it rapidly escalated into something very, very serious.
He was rushed to St Peter’s and put straight into ICU because of his age, and the nature of his illness. He was in a lot of pain, but has been very stoical throughout.
Wilnelia was by his bedside virtually the entire time, and has been amazing.
Now Bruce just wants to get home, and slowly build his strength back up again. He remains in great spirits.
Reports suggest the presenter’s latest health scare was unrelated to two life-threatening aneurysms in 2015.
Forsyth hasn’t been seen in public for over a year since then.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
