Sir Bruce Forsyth's wife has said the TV veteran finds it difficult to walk, as she spoke about her husband's health struggles following life-saving surgery.

Doctors discovered last year that the 88-year-old had two aneurysms, after tests were carried out following a fall at his Surrey home. Lady Wilnelia (59) said the operation had sapped the energy of the former Generation Game and Strictly Come Dancing host, but that he is in "incredible shape mentally".

She told the Mail on Sunday's You magazine: "The operation took his energy because of his age, there's no question about it.

"Some days are better than others. On the not-so-good days, he tries to rest."
