Sir Bruce Forsyth Recovering From Life-Saving Surgery Following 'A Nasty Fall'

Sir Bruce Forsyth is said to be recovering from life-saving surgery after suffering a nasty fall at his home last October.

The veteran TV personality has been told to “take it easy” after he had a keyhole operation to ease the swelling of a main blood vessel leading from the heart.

Speaking to The Sun, a source said of the 87-year-old: “Bruce is making a slow but steady recovery. He is on the mend.”

And we could not be happier to hear it.

Bruce’s 58-year-old wife Wilnelia previously revealed that the fall made her fear for her husband’s life, admitting that she is “not ready” to lose him.

Speaking to the Daily Mail in an emotional interview, Wilnelia said: “I’m not ready to lose him yet. This has scared me to death, particularly waiting in that hospital when he was having his operation.

"That felt like an eternity. Because of Bruce’s age there are so many risks involved.

"You think, ‘My God, will he come out all right?’. But you have to trust the doctors. The alternative - not having surgery - was worse. It’s like you’re in a corner. You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, because this is such a fatal thing.”

She added that the operation and recovery period has been “very hard” for Bruce, but hopefully he’ll be fully back on his feet soon.
