“Puerto Rico is one of those places you can be as quiet or as crazy as you want, because there’s so much nightlife. I have to take the craziness carefully.” (Bruce Forsyth)


“I don’t want to grow old gracefully. I want to put up a bit of a fight.” (Bruce Forsyth)


“When you’ve been brought up in variety, I think timing is always important in your life. If I’m ever late for anything, whether it’s personal or business, I always apologise. ‘I’m sorry I’m late,’ and all that. And if somebody is late meeting me, I expect them to say ‘I’m sorry I’m late.’ It’s just, shall we say, showbiz etiquette of my day.” (Bruce Forsyth)
