A Norfolk artist's latest grafilthy creation has paid tribute to veteran TV presenter Sir Bruce Forsyth.
The 89-year-old star of hit TV shows including Strictly Come Dancing and The Generation Game died peacefully at his home yesterday surrounded by his wife and children.
Rick Minns, known as Ruddy Muddy, paid tribute to the actor, singer and host with a picture of him on the back of a white van alongside the message 'Nice to have seen you to have seen you nice!!! RIP Brucie.'
In a statement following his death Sir Bruce's manager, Ian Wilson, said: 'It is with great sadness that the Forsyth family announce that Sir Bruce passed away this afternoon, peacefully at his home surrounded by his wife Wilnelia and all his children.
'A couple of weeks ago, a friend visited him and asked him what he had been doing these last eighteen months.
