    Finally, Brucie gets his bonus

    About bloody time, especially as the last governments been giving them out like sweets.

    A worthy nod to the man who on a weekly basis would say to millions "I hope you're all playing with yourselves at home" among many double entendres.



    Didn't He Do Well: Sir Brucey Gets Knighthood



    12:21pm UK, Wednesday October 12, 2011
    Sir Bruce Forsyth has received his knighthood for services to entertainment in a career spanning 70 years.


    Sir Bruce, 83, swept into the palace's central quadrangle in a chauffeur-driven vintage Rolls-Royce and emerged smiling with his family.
    He was joined by his Puerto Rico-born wife Wilnelia, a former Miss World, and their 24-year-old son Jonathan Joseph, known as JJ, and his daughters from previous marriages Charlotte, 34, and Laura, 48.
    The Strictly Come Dancing host's place as a leading TV presenter has been recognised after years of campaigning by fans.
    The award also marks his charity work, something the star does privately.

    Admitting he feared he might never receive the honour, a delighted Sir Bruce said he could not wait to call his wife "my lady" when the knighthood was announced in the summer.
    Bruce got his big break in 1958 when he became host of Sunday Night At The London Palladium.
    He went on to host The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and Bruce's Price Is Right.
    In 2004, when in effective semi-retirement, he was brought back to host a new version of an old programme, Strictly Come Dancing, and scored another massive hit.

    "Nice to see it, to see it, nice..."

    Bruce is quality, and has been rather popular with the ladies.

    (quite interesting story; many protests that the winner and runner up were not white...)

    Good luck to him. He's certainly cheered a few people up over the years.
