Sir Bruce Forsyth graced television screens around the country for more than five decades and was famous for his catchphrases.
With his witty asides, his cheeky smile and his displays of mock outrage, Sir Bruce delighted TV audiences and was one of the most talented, versatile and popular TV entertainers of his generation.
His energy was as phenomenal as his catch-words were infectious.
Nearly every performance began with the greeting: 'Nice to see you...to see you nice!'
Or when a contestant in one of his many game shows excelled himself, Sir Bruce would chant: 'Didn't he do well?'
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 also popularised 'Give us a twirl' on the Generation Game, which he hosted from 1971 to 1977.
He used the line to encourage the hostess, Anthea Redfern - whom he went on to marry - to show off her dress. In 1990 he resurrected the show for a four-year stint.
Sir Bruce became Britain's best-paid TV star, famous for hosting game shows like The Generation
