Van Driver Pays Tribute To The Late Sir Bruce Forsyth

A delivery driver has transformed his mucky van into an amazing tribute to late TV star Sir Bruce Forsyth.

After learning of Sir Bruce's death at the age of 89, Ricky Minns decided to do to mark the entertainer's life.

The 42-year-old, who works for a flower company Flowervision, used his artistic talents to paint a pretty impressive picture of the star on his work van.

He also wrote a tribute to the actor, saying: "Nice to have seen you to have seen you nice!!! RIP Brucie."

Speaking about his creation, he said: "I did it last night, I was at my parents' with my two daughters.

"I think it's just really tragic news about Bruce.

"He's that one TV presenter that everyone grew up with and is still there, he's the last of the last of those.

"I feel like everyone was expecting it, but usually, when it happens, you're never quite ready for it.

"I don't always get the opportunity to pay a tribute and so I wanted to show my respects I the only way I can."

The van belongs to the company he works for, who allow him to paint designs on their vans as long as he puts their name on it.

Putting a twist on usual 'clean me' scribble and penis drawings, Ricky started his mucky van artwork 10 years ago.

He said: "It was because stuff on the back of vans was rude and my kiddies were just little, so I would cover it up with just mountains and simple things like that.

"I did one for the Fast and Furious film and it took eight to ten hours but got a really great response."

Ricky's work has travelled from his hometown in Norwich to all parts of the country.

His tribute to Bruce, which he created in Wicklewood, Wyndham, took him two hours.
