Sir Bruce Forsyth’s widow reveals his last moments

Bruce Forsyth was the host of Strictly Come Dancing, pictured here at the launch in 2012.

The widow of Sir Bruce Forsyth has revealed the details of his death.

The well-know performer had been ill for a while, and had spent time in hospital earlier this year, with five days in intensive care,  after a severe chest infection.

He’d also had two life-threatening aneurysms, leaving him bed-ridden.

Lady Wilnelia says her husband died on August 18 as she held his hand, surrounded by his daughters, their son and her mother.

“He left quietly and in peace,” Lady Wilnelia said. “Like everything he did, his departure was as organised and structured as his life.”
