MEET the lat­est Coro­na­tion Street res­i­dent – BRUCE FORSYTH! Ur­ban ex­plor­ers pok­ing round the old Cor­rie set last week­end were stunned to see a sil­hou­ette of Bru­cie do­ing his fa­mous ‘ Thinker’ pose through the net cur­tains of the Kabin. Com­ing less than 48 hours af­ter the death of the pop­u­lar en­ter­tainer was an­nounced, the ex­plor­ers are now con­vinced they have seen the GHOST of Bru­cie. One of the ex­plor­ers – who asked to re­main anony­mous for fear of reprisals – told Sun­day Sport: “We read about how the old Coro­na­tion Street set was aban­doned and a bit spooky so we went in and had a look. “We thought it might cheer us up a bit be­cause we were all up­set at Bru­cie’s death. The ur­ban ex­plorer com­mu­nity had a lot of time for Bruce Forsyth.

“We man­aged to get in and it was amaz­ing be­ing where all those pre­pos­ter­ous sto­ry­lines have been played out.

“We were op­po­site the Kabin when some­one looked up and said ‘ Hey, there’s some­one in the win­dow’. We looked and there was no mis­tak­ing that pose. It was Bruce – or, rather, the ghost of Bruce.

“It seemed strange his un­quiet spirit would turn up on the Cor­rie set but when we got home we googled Bruce and found out he’d been a big fan of the soap.”

Sir Bruce’s death was an­nounced to a dev­as­tated na­tion ear­lier this month.

As a mark of re­spect, the gov­ern­ment or­dered Big Ben to fall silent for FOUR YEARS.
