Kmfm presenter Tony Blackburn has described Sir Bruce Forsyth as an "absolute national treasure" following news of his death.
The 89-year-old Strictly Come Dancing host had been unwell for some time.
Mr Blackburn said: "Over the years I got to know Bruce, I was on quite a lot of his television shows, game shows and things like that.

"He was always very warm and nice and just a terrific entertainer.
"He comes from that era of Morecambe and Wise and The Two Ronnies where you could switch the TV on and you knew you'd get a real family entertainer.
“He was such a talented man as well, he could play the piano, he could sing, he could dance, he could do practically everything.
“His career lasted 75 years, which is amazing.
“He was just a true 100% professional, who will be very, very sadly missed.”
