The life of broadcast legend Sir Bruce Forsyth, who has died in his home at the age of 89, will be survived by his family and the memorable television moments which made him such a star.
Videos recount the veteran presenter's life on screen - from his popular catchphrases of the 1970s Generation Game, to his more recent dance moves seen on Strictly Come Dancing.
Sir Bruce first appeared on TV at the age of 11 and currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest television career, which spanned 75 years from 1939 to 2014.
Here are some of the finest moments of one of Britain's most notable entertainers.
It was The Generation Game that thrust some of Sir Bruce's most famous one-liners into the national lexicon.
He opened every show with 'Nice to see you, to see you...', to which the audience unfailingly replied 'Nice!'.
Sir Bruce hosted The Generation Game from 1971 to 1977, where he was also known for his strongman poses.
From 2004 he co-presented Strictly Come Dancing with Tess Daly until he stepped down aged 86 in 2014, revealing the long shows were taking their toll on his health - you couldn't tell from his dance moves.
The popular entertainer had two life threatening aneurysms in 2015.
In early 2017 he was taken into intensive care after suffering a severe chest infection.
He received an OBE in 1998 and was knighted in 2011 for his record breaking television career.
In 1983 Sir Bruce married Wilnelia Merced, a model who was crowned Miss World in 1975. The pair met while judging the 1980 Miss World Competition.
He is survived by six children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Sir Bruce Forsyth seemed to always be able to turn on his charm no matter what programme he was on, even stealing the show while on Loose Women.
