A performer has shared his memories of sharing a stage with the late great Sir Bruce Forsyth.
The veteran entertainer died last week and had performed many gigs in Great Yarmouth.
One string of performances at the ABC Regal Theatre is fondly remembered by Max Bedford.
He was on the same bill as Brucie as a bassist in a band called the Trebeltones.
Mr Bedford, 77, said he wishes he'd had a camera in those days.
The Eastender, who moved to Great Yarmouth, added: 'Brucie said to me, 'do you have a string bass?' I said yes and he told me to bring it next week.
'He liked a lot of Jazz stuff like Nat King Cole. I worked with him a few times and he was always very friendly.'
