Anyone over a certain age will know Bruce was well known for being tall in the 1960s and 1970s. He was honestly about 6 foot 1. He's obviously shorter now but he's 80+

Just saw an excellent documentary on the Beeb about Nat King Cole, who was around 6'1"; at one point, he's standing next to Forsyth at the London Palladium and they're both around the same height. I'm afraid we all lose height as we age, just some more than others (I've lost at least an inch in my late 50's). Bruce now is about 5'10ish or less, he's lost a few or more inches which isn't that unusual (just look at Eastwood).

This is quite a useful photo, alongside the Beatles back in the day, hope the link works:

I used to be a security officer in Harrods and i stand, in shoes, at 5'11". I stood next to Bruce many a time in the store and i can assure you he is not over 6' tall. I looked down on him, not by much but he is without doubt no taller than 5'10" in his shoes.

Watching him on Strictly last night I would say he was barely 5ft 9 now.

Watching very old footage of Forsythe and Tommy Cooper on stage together (they had the same manager and often appeared together), Forsythe looks to be at least 6ft, no less. He would have been noticeably above average height in post-war era Britain.

My mum and dad thought he was about 6 ft.
