Sir Bruce presented Strictly Come Dancing from its launch in 2004 until 2014, and on Saturday night he was remembered with a heartfelt performance.

Louise Rainbow, the shows executive producer, told The Sun newspaper last month: “The thoughts of everyone here are still very much with Sir Bruce’s family.

“Of course, we will be paying tribute to Sir Bruce at our launch show and this will include a heartfelt performance from our Strictly professional dancers.

“We all want to celebrate him and all that he loved about the show. Sir Bruce was, and will always be, a huge part of Strictly Come Dancing.”

The pro dancers gave Sir Bruce the send of he deserved with a touching performance, paying their respects to a man who defined Strictly by his humour, hard work and professionalism.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One.
