Sir Bruce Forsyth will return home from hospital on Friday (03.03.17), his manager has confirmed, after a stay at St Peter's Hospital where he was thought to be receiving treatment for a severe chest infection
Sir Bruce Forsyth will return home from hospital on Friday (03.03.17) after he was rushed to intensive care last week.
The 89-year-old television presenter reportedly spent five nights in the ICU at St Peter's hospital in Surrey after he was struck down with a severe chest infection.
His manager Ian Wilson said: "Sir Bruce Forsyth is scheduled to return home from hospital later today and would like to thank everyone for their good wishes.
"He and his family would also like to say a special thank you to all the NHS doctors, nurses and staff at St Peter's Hospital for their kindness and care."
It comes after a source claimed Bruce was admitted to hospital last Sunday (26.02.17).
A source close to the former 'Strictly Come Dancing' host said at the time: "Bruce came down with an infection last weekend, and it rapidly escalated into something very, very serious.
"He was rushed to St Peter's and put straight into ICU because of his age, and the nature of his illness. He was in a lot of pain, but has been very stoical throughout.
"Of course, because he is nearly 90, doctors had to take extra precautions and Bruce had to stay in intensive care for a minimum of five nights."
And Bruce - who underwent keyhole surgery in 2015 after suffering two life-threatening aneurysms - was said to be keen to return home to Surrey to be with his wife Wilnelia.
The insider added: "Wilnelia was by his bedside virtually the entire time, and has been amazing. Now Bruce just wants to get home, and slowly build his strength back up again. He remains in great spirits."
