Bruce Forsyth is known across four generations as the 'face' of family entertainment classics such as The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right and The Price is Right. His is an amazing story that spans more than two thirds of the twentieth century. In the late 1950s, over half of Britain would tune into Sunday Night at the London Palladium; making Bruce a star in a few weeks. But it had been a long slog since his debut as fourteen-year-old 'Boy Bruce the Mighty Atom' in 1942 then wartime work for the Red Cross and National Service after, and playing every theatre, concert party, summer season, double act and review known to man. He's been at the very top ever since. Bruce's first-ever account of his whole life is chock full of anecdotes, honest appraisals of tough times, failed marriages and affairs, comments on entertainment today and what it takes to be a comedian at the height of his powers. 'In the gameshow of life, Brucie hasn't just won the TV, the golf clubs and the hostess trolley. He's won the cuddly toy as well'.
