Sir Bruce Forsyth returned home from hospital in an ambulance.
The 89-year-old television presenter spent five nights in the ICU at St Peter's hospital in Surrey after he was struck down with a severe chest infection and was accompanied by medics as he made his way home on Friday (03.03.17).
A source told The Sun on Sunday: "Bruce is feeling much better but is still far from 100 per cent, so doctors decided to take precautions.
"Their view was that the more support he had on hand for the transition, the better.
"Now Bruce is at home, he can relax completely and concentrate on getting better, which is of course, what everyone wants him to do.
"He won't be up and about for a while, but he is happy the doctors have allowed him to be at home - where he is comfortable.
"Everyone is keeping an eye on him, these illnesses are more troubling at a certain age but he has been through worse."
Speaking on Friday, Bruce's 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."
Bruce - who underwent keyhole surgery in 2015 after suffering two life-threatening aneurysms - is being nursed back to health by his wife Wilnelia.
An insider said: "Wilnelia was by his bedside virtually the entire time, and has been amazing. He remains in great spirits."
