Star gazers around the world have been studying footage of the fading body of Bruce Forsyth and believe he may still be alive, despite previous reports to the contrary. Forsyth has been observed for the past 60 years, but is believed to have been in existence since the beginning of the solar system.
"We watched him on Saturday hurtling towards another encounter with Strictly Come Dancing," Heat magazine's Boyd Hilton explained. "Nobody expected him to come out the other side in one piece, and by the end of the show there were very little signs of life. But satellites orbiting the earth have imaged fragments of Forsyth going to the shops Sunday morning, keeping hopes alive."
Scientists have asked for a few more days to verify the status of Forsyth, but say although his light has definitely faded, he may make another episode of Strictly. If he does makes it through to Saturday's show, people are asked to temper their expectations. Although his body may just about be alive, all of his jokes will still die on impact.
