Strictly Come Dancing’s tribute to Bruce Forsyth was incredibly moving

Guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye.

Guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye.

A few weeks ago, veteran broadcaster and much-loved presenter Bruce Forsyth passed away at the age of 89.

Last night saw the return of Strictly Come Dancing to our screens, and with Bruce no longer with us to host the show, the producers put together a fantastic tribute in honour of him.

Set to Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ – which Forsyth previously sang on Strictly – the production consisted of interviews with those who had worked with the legend, clips of the man himself, and a dance routine which ends with an outline of Bruce’s signature pose.

At this moment, his co-host of ten years Tess Daly broke down into tears, saying: “Sadly, somebody very, very close to our hearts is no longer with us. We were all devastated when we heard the news.”
