Miranda Hart pays tribute to Sir Bruce Forsyth on The Royal Variety Performance!

Queen of comedy, Miranda Hart hosted this year’s Royal Variety Performance and paid tribute to the late Bruce Forsyth.

Tonight on ITV, Miranda Hart hosts this year’s Royal Variety Performance in the presence of their Royal Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

At the start of the show, Miranda says: “What an honour it is to be hosting this evening, and you’ll be pleased to hear that the status of the event hasn’t changed me at all… Get me my throne now! I just insist on a throne being bought on by two dancers,” she jokes, “Throne Envy?” she asks the Duke and Duchess.

Later in the show, Miranda presented a tribute to the late Bruce Forsyth.

“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s now time for a reflective moment. Earlier this year we lost one of our country’s’ greatest entertainers, a legendary show man whose career spanned an awe inspiring eight decades.

“I’m talking of course about the one and only Sir Bruce Forsyth.

“Four years ago, I had the absolute joy and honour of interviewing Sir Bruce on this very stage as he reminisced about his career. He hadn’t been on the Palladium stage for many years and was not only immediately dancing and tapping and making jokes, but was clearly moved and a little misty eyed as he remembered the countless times he performed on this stage.

“I was really struck by his genuine passion, his dedication and commitment and hard work to entertain and boy did he do that… He really was the King of entertainment,

“Brucey we shall miss you and thank you.”

Clips of Bruce presenting and appearing on the Royal Variety Performance over the years were played.

You can watch this year’s Royal Variety Performance on ITV at 7:30pm.
