Because I want to put him a level slightly above the rest.
Bruce Forsyth was a legend where I'm concerned. He was the best television entertainer. Ever.
I recall Bruce's move away from ITV and it meaning that the game show was ended. But I also remember how chuffed I was during my early teens when the programme returned following Brucie's return to ITV.
The two relatives I watched the programme with had passed on, but I was so glad to see the show return to our screens.
I got to tell him these stories when I wrote to him twelve years ago. He replied, but it wasn't just with an autograph. He took the time to type up a proper letter along with the autograph. I thought that was very generous of him.
So, yeah, I was sorry to hear of his passing.
