Tess Daly Posts Heartbreaking Tribute To ‘True Legend’ Sir Bruce Forsyth


Television legend Sir Bruce Forsyth had passed away aged 89.

His family confirmed the news that the small screen personality died on Friday following a long illness.

Tributes have been paid in the thousands, from friend and fans, lauding the work of a man whose career spanned 75 years.

Former Strictly Come Dancing co-host Tess Daly worked with Brucie for a decade on the smash BBC dancing show.


Mourning the loss of her long-time colleague, she wrote:

There are no words to describe how heartbroken I am to be told the saddest news, that my dear friend Sir Bruce Forsyth has passed away.

From the moment we met, Bruce and I did nothing but laugh our way through a decade of working together on Strictly Come Dancing and I will never forget his generosity, his brilliant sense of humour and his drive to entertain the audiences he so loved.

He has been there for me as a co-host, a mentor, but most importantly as a friend, and I’m extremely fortunate to have worked alongside the man who defined Saturday night entertainment for so many decades.

He was a gentleman and a true legend and I will miss him deeply. My heart goes out to Winnie, his wife, and his beautiful family at this sad time.

Other celebrities were quick to pay tributes to the legend: 

Nice to know you Brucie, to know you, nice. RIP.
