Bruce Forsyth and his wife keep their romance alive by constantly talking.
Former Miss World beauty queen Wilnelia Forsyth - who met Bruce, 82 when they were judging Miss World together back in 1980 - admits part of the reason why their marriage is a success is because they have never sat in silence.
She told Britain's Hello! Magazine: "What's amazing being married to an older guy is that we see couples in restaurants not talking to each other, but there's always a story that I haven't heard from Bruce.
"He always has something to tell me that fascinates me. We never sit in silence."
Wilnelia also admitted part of the reason why they don't fight is because she dislikes confrontation.
She explained: "I'm a very easy person. I don't like confrontation. In a marriage you need two to fight. And Bruce is very caring and respectful. We talk about everything. If I'm in the wrong I'll say I'm sorry, if he's in the wrong he'll say he's sorry.
"Sometimes Bruce does things that he doesn't want to so, but I know he does them because he wants to please me. I do the same for him. You cannot be selfish in a marriage, if there's any secret it has to be that and not taking each other for granted."
