Bruce Forsyth Inheritance

It was announced on Friday 18th August 2017 that national treasure and entertainer Sir Bruce Forsyth has died.

With a show-biz career spanning over 75 years, no matter which generation you are from, it’s likely you will have fond memories watching Sir Bruce on a Saturday night.

His much-loved TV shows included The Price is Right, Play Your Cards Right and The Generation Game. More recently, he co-hosted the hugely successful Strictly Come Dancing and wowed the audience with his dance moves, proving he was certainly young at heart.

Sir Bruce has always captured the hearts of the nation, and his famous catchphrases including “Nice to see you, to see you, nice!” will certainly still be remembered in years to come.

knighthood

Recognised as a veteran of entertainment, in October 2011 Bruce Forsyth received his knighthood, just a few years before he decided to step back from the spotlight in 2014.

For an Edmonton boy who started work aged 14, we say “Didn’t he do well”.

Sir Bruce is survived by his wife of 36 years, former Miss World, Wilnelia Merced and his impressive brood of six children, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Inheritance Tax

He left his £17 million fortune entirely to his wife, which means inheritance tax will not be applied. She has also inherited his company, Bruce Forsyth Enterprises, and is now sole Director.
