The world has lost one of its Treasures.
Sir Bruce Forsythe died yesterday at the age of 89.
I never met him.
But I remember his catch phrase ‘Nice to see you, to see you nice’, ‘Come on Down’ and ‘Nothing for a pair in this game’.
I remember Beat the Clock on Sunday Night at the London Palladium as a kid.
I remember my Dad saying he knew him well, as they went to different schools together (think about it, and you’ll realise my Dad had a quirky sense of humour).
I remember Brucie’s Bonus statuettes, and him saying he wasn’t a comedian, he was An Entertainer.
He was one of the best, if not The Best, and will be sorely missed.
Who else today is an all-rounder: singer, dancer, comedian, game show host, musician, actor and one of the nicest people in show biz.
Someone I would dearly have liked to meet.
