Hmm. In retrospect he probably wished he’d chosen a different turn of phrase. Here’s Brucie confessing “I do feel it is time to go” and taking his leave from his second home – for 13 years – on Christmas Eve, 1994. Rolf Harris, Susan George and Willie Rushton join in the obligatory end credit waving along with, presumably, the Trachtengruppe Schruns. “Merry Christmas, and see you soon…”
As an added treat, it’s followed by a trailer for BBC1’s Christmas Day evening schedule and then – ulp – the opening of the National Lottery Live, with Anthea and Gordon at the Hippodrome in Birmingham with the cast of Jack and the Beanstalk, where, by the look and sound of things, bedlam reigns.
