With a TV career travelling some-more than 75 years, Bruce has seemed on dozens of programmes during his time on screen.
The entertainer, who died at the age of 89, was famous for his roles on The Generation Game, The Price is Right and Strictly Come Dancing to name just a few.
The maestro hostess had returned home from hospital on Friday afternoon, flanked by medics, after spending 5 days in complete caring due to a serious chest infection.
In new years his Strictly catchphrases have turn partial of the bland lives – or slightest Saturday nights around Christmas time – with “Nice to see you, to see you…nice”, “You’re my favourite”, and “Keep Dancin'” among some of the many popular.

“Nice to see you, to see you…” – Back in the 1970s and 1980s Bruce would open The Generation Game programme any time with the observant which the assembly would finish off with “nice!”
The TV fable brought this back into renouned use during his years on Strictly Come Dancing between 2004 and 2014.
