Television presenter and entertainer Bruce Forsyth has died aged 89. Forsyth, whose showbiz career spanned more than seven decades, had been unwell for some time and was in hospital earlier this year after a severe chest infection.

He hosted gameshows such as The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and The Price is Right.
Forsyth also had an appearance in Disney's Mary Poppins, with Julie Andrews. He came to national attention from the mid-1950s through the ITV series Sunday Night at the London Palladium.
He co-presented Strictly Come Dancing from 2004 to 2014. Forsyth is known for his catchphrases, "Nice to see you, to see you nice".
