Delivery driver pays tribute to Sir Bruce with incredible art work

A delivery driver has transformed the rear of his muddy van into a tribute to late TV star Sir Bruce Forsyth.

Ricky Minns, 42, was devastated to learn of Sir Bruce’s death at the age of 89.

He was at his parent’s house at the time, and took the opportunity to express his sentiments on his work vehicle.

Ricky, who works for a flower company, said: “I did it last night, I was at my parents’ with my two daughters.

“I grabbed the opportunity, the van belongs to the company I work for- that’s their rule for any piece I do, that I put their name on it.

“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.”

Putting a twist on the notorious “clean me” scribble, Ricky started his muddy 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, where he works for Flower Vision, all across the country.

His tribute to Bruce, which he created in Wicklewood, Wyndham, took him two hours and has already reached the national press.
