Product Description
Sir Bruce Forsyth, know 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 the nation. This remarkable biography traces the life of Britain's favorite 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 for his services to entertainment and charity, to his comeback in 2004 as part of the popular TV show Strictly Come Dancing. Although born into a family of performers at heart—his parents played brass instruments for the Salvation Army and his mother was a singer—Bruce spent years traveling 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, when he was asked to host the TV series Sunday Night at the London Palladium. He was so popular that the original two-week stint ended up lasting five years and he went on to present game shows The Generation Game and Play Your Cards Right, developing catchphrases that were to last lifetime, icluding the popualr "Nice to see you, to see you, nice." Across the decades, Bruce's successful career has been varied and unparalleled but his life outside of the entertainent industry has been equally lived out to the full. 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, an obsessive hobby that has led him to set up his main residence adjacent to Wentworth golf course in Surrey. Author Jules Stenson paints a complete porait of a living legend. This is a must-read for any fan of Bruce; one of the last true variety performers.

    Bruce Forsyth is known across four generations as the 'face' of family entertainment classics such as The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and The Price is Right. His is an amazing story that spans more than two thirds of the twentieth century. In the late 1950s, over half of Britain would tune into Sunday Night at the London Palladium; making Bruce a star in a few weeks. But it had been a long slog since his debut as fourteen-year-old 'Boy Bruce the Mighty Atom' in 1942 then wartime work for the Red Cross and National Service after, and playing every theatre, concert party, summer season, double act and review known to man. He's been at the very top ever since. Bruce's first-ever account of his whole life is chock full of anecdotes, honest appraisals of tough times, failed marriages and affairs, comments on entertainment today and what it takes to be a comedian at the height of his powers.
