Well I think the man is a true legend and a role model for all entertainment stooges of the media world today. A truly genuine bloke with integrity... rock and roll!

Death list, pah! not for a long time.

77 today, happy birthday
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Had a BAFTA tribute last week, means in sickeningly good health.

The BBC would never use up their best obituary material on a tribute if there was any chance of short term karking it....

Another couple of years at least.

Good call Mortician, but someone like Brucie won't die slowly in his bed. He's a trooper and proud of it. On stage at the Palladium is my guess.

So is the BBC now deciding whether one of it's celebrities, and I use the word advisedly, may live or die depending on its schedules?

Hmm, when the powers that be start showering Life Time Achievement awards on celebs it means they get nervous. Old age of the celeb may be the only reason, but often inside information plays a role.

I just a posted this particularly un-structured and possibly offensive rant on Ozone Asylum, then did a little browsing and found this thread. Brucey-related postage follows:

http://www.ozoneasylum.com/25352

What can I say? This man is made of material sterner than your average OAP. He has provided this country with the most widely-emulated entertainment style and character ever devised (though I very much doubt that he 'devised' the image he carries-off with such flair). His uniquely recognisable style and charm will most definitely out-live his mortal presence.

This man has lived a dream. Now, in his dotage, he is still providing us with entertainment of a quality unsurpassed! Still tripping the light-fantastic with real old-school style, pattering wittily with the best of latter-day presenters, and drawing the crowds as host of various shows (and in doing so, raising their popularity to unbelievable levels).

Theroux couldn't rip him to shreds because their is nothing to dig up! The fellow is truly what he seems - an amusing, charming, good-homoured, and genuinely decent chap with an abundance of talent and the grace to share it with all of us...
...that, and he probably knew he'd be castrated for attempting to shovel sh*t on such a cherished national treasure.

Being of the opinion that most the shoddy trash I grew-up with was beneath my childish contempt, and that TV today has about as much value as a soiled syringe, I think that a man with Bruce's obvious talent and devotion should be recognised for raising the standards of television entertainment in Britain.

For this reason, and also because I may be a little less than sober, I'm seriously considering initiating a wide-spread campaign for his nomination for a knighthood. If the ignorant, facile, irrelevant, tuneless, talentless, un-charitable and grotesque can make it to the list, then surely one single gentleman of infinitely-more worth may just escape filtration and be granted the honour that he is sorely due?

Give this man the honour he desrves! A Knighthood for Bruce!

Yeah-yeah, you can stop laughing now - I'm actually not very nice to people who laugh at me... though since the medication started, they have only had to use the tranquiliser gun every few days. Well, every other day then, but I'm getting better. Honest..!

...er....you do realise this is a deathlist site - not a Brucie sycophant site?

However, I do agree with you, Bruce is a class performer (although he's not as good as he personally thinks he is!). He thought he was on par with the likes of Sinatra's rat pack. He's talented, just not THAT talented.

He will be missed later this year. :)

I heard somewhere that he is now impotent but he's got no hard feelings.

I predict it will occur around 15 August - but, of course, it could be higher or lower than a 15. :)

Yeah, well... I was a little the worse for wear when I typed that one up, I'm afraid.

Still - would be nice to see that knighthood before he kicks the bucket.

Wow! *reads back* I really did get carried away, didn't I?

Noticed he was 48 on the 1995 list and hasn't appeared since. The man is 77 this year. Probably not a prime contender but let's at least rev up for the future by considering the all important question.

He wasn't without a certain lack of talent.

But annoying he definitely was. Larry Grayson was worse. mind you, when he took over the Generation Game.

He was up at Buck Pal twice this week.
I wonder if anyone else of note was at that over-sixties entertainers' knees up?

Now a great-grandfather, Forsyth has six children and lives in Surrey with his third wife Wilnelia, a former Miss World.


Another thing I wonder is if the glamorous third Mrs. Forsyth was ever in any way acquainted with the late Mr. George Best of Belfast?

Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere (it MUST have been); I did do a search but couldn't find the Celebrity Deathmatch thread.

Bruce Forsyth vs. Dick Van Dyke - to the death.

It seems a match made in heaven. They both tap-dance, roller-skate, smile a lot, have big chins, like the lovely ladies, have expertly-manicured moustaches, display charismatic raconteur wit and they're roughly the same age, born in 1928 and 1925 respectively. As I said, I'm surely not the first to think of this (I'm about to be embarrassed aren't I? Someone's gonna point me to the Forsyth/Van Dyke Deathmatch thread).
