PostSir Bruce Forsyth passes away aged 89

BBC News wrote:Sir Bruce Forsyth, the veteran entertainer and presenter of many successful TV shows, has died aged 89.



The former Strictly Come Dancing presenter had been unwell for some time and was in hospital earlier this year after a severe chest infection.

His long career in showbusiness began when he was aged just 14.

He became 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.

Sir Bruce had not been seen in public recently, 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, the presenter underwent keyhole surgery after suffering two aneurysms, which were discovered following a fall at his Surrey home.

In an interview last October, his wife said he was still having "a bit of a problem moving". She said: "He's in incredible shape mentally but he gets very tired."

TBH we should have seen this coming, there hasn't been enough celebrity deaths this year to sustain him.

I'm glad they did that Dark Souls cover art tribute to him before he died.

The BBC are already airing a tribute to him. Was this something pre-scheduled? Or did they really have a show ready to go right away in the event of his death?

They prerecord tributes to all old celebrities.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.
