This afternoon we received some saddening and shocking news. After having spent the afternoon watching 42nd Street (a show my 7 year old ironically told me reminded her of Brucie) we learnt that the legend and Mr Strictly himself had passed away.
For us Brucie encompassed everything Strictly was about. He was a pro and a true entertainer. He made us smile and got the nation dancing.
He was not just popular with the grown ups but kids loved him too. Earlier my little Bella put things into perspective, calling him her TV Grandad. For us, he was like a grandad; a person we looked up to and admired. He had such a warm soul and we were all his favourites.
Brucie, Keep Dancing, wherever you are. Here’s a tribute to you from all of us.
We’d love to hear your favourite Brucie moments. Comment below or tweet @scd_support to let us know. We’d like this post to become a little tribute to him.
Also, tomorrow night from 8pm we’ll be hosting a Brucie themed Strictly Support Group chat on twitter in tribute to the legend that was Bruce Forsyth.
