    This probably won't be a particulary popular thread as he was a UK legend, but most of us here grew up with him on TV at some point in our lives, and he owned it.

    I liked him very much - "Nice to see you, to see you nice."

    There is something about many British entertainers... their relaxed sense of humour.

    Great when I was a kid on the Generation Game but well past his 'sell by date'
    when hosting Strictly. Not a comedian, not a dancer, not a singer but an old-
    fashioned entertainer - not sure if there is anyone comparable now?

    They don't show British TV programmes like his here anymore so I wouldn't know, but if instead I think of other gifted personalities appering on Swedish TV, my favourite is/was Michael Parkinson - he and his guests created good entertainment with unforgettable humour.
