Brucie - The Biography of Sir Bruce Forsyth
Sir Bruce Forsyth, known more affectionately as Brucie, is one of Britain's best-loved stars and a true national treasure. From hosting game shows, such as The Price is Right and You Bet!, to presenting talent competitions and variety shows, he has lit up television screens for decades, attracted record-breaking audiences and captured the heart of a nation. This remarkable biography traces the life of Britain's favourite TV personality from his middle-class roots in Middlesex through his days as a successful presenter and performer, which has earned him the most coveted award of all: a knighthood from the Queen, to his part in the popular TV show Strictly Come Dancing. As a child Bruce spent years travelling the country working in pier shows and music halls, and was on the verge of quitting show business, before he got his big break in 1958 on Sunday Night at the London Palladium. After five years he went on to present The Generation Game and Play Your Cards Right, developing catchphrases that were to last a lifetime. This authoritative biography offers valuable insight into his life and loves, covering his three marriages - including his current wife, 1975 Miss World, Wilnelia Merced - and his passion for golf. Author Jules Stenson paints a complete portrait of a living legend. This is a must-read book for any fan of Bruce; one of the last true variety performers.
