Sir Bruce Forsyth, who worked with Eddie Braben on Play Your Cards Right, has paid tribute to the "fantastic" sketch writer saying he will be "sorely missed":
This is sad news, it really is. He was a fantastic writer.
What he did for Eric (Morecambe) and Ernie (Wise) was incredible.
He was the third man of the comedy.
I wish I could have been doing the kind of shows he had written.
His jokes and style of writing will be sorely missed in the business.
