Gene Wilder, the legendary actor perhaps best remembered for his role as Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, has died aged 83.

The actor, who also starred in Blazing Saddles, The Producers, and Young Frankenstein, died in Stamford, Connecticut, on Monday.

Tributes have been made for the actor...

...some quoting famous lines from his roles...

But one scene in particular seemed to be a standout favourite for fans of Willy Wonka.

The scene comes at the end of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. when Charlie is the last remaining child in the chocolate factory.

Wonka reveals Charlie has failed the test to receive the lifetime supply of chocolate, having drunk pop which made he and his grandfather float.

You get nothing! You lose! Good day, Sir!

Charlie and his grandfather are about to leave, despondent, when Charlie decides to return the everlasting gobstopper he was given, indicating he will not give the recipe to Wonka's rival.

Wonka then is delighted, telling Charlie he has passed the real test, and is fit to become heir to the chocolate factory.

People have been tweeting the scene and the quote of Wonka's realisation that Charlie is fit to run the factory:
