Television legend Bruce Forsyth made a brother and sister's day at Weymouth Carnival in 1959.

Linda Pickering and her brother won a prize for their fantastic fancy dress - decked out as Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men.

They were given a large teddy and 10 shillings by Bruce Forsyth himself, as you can see in this photo!

Dorset Echo:

Linda tell us: "Our parents made our costumes out of cardboard boxes, I was three and my brother was four, I don't actually remember the day as it was 61 years ago."

Dorset Echo:

Back in those days Bruce would appear at Weymouth Pavilion during the summer season. He had Gary Miller as his support act on two occasions. Mr Miller died of a heart attack in 1968, aged just 44.

Bruce Forsyth, of course, had a long career in showbiz and was perhaps best known for hosting Strictly Come Dancing. He died in 2017.
