BBC Strictly Come Dancing star reveals strange place they hope to ‘drop dead’

Strictly Come Dancing legend Bruno Tonioli has been dazzling us with his flamboyant critiques and infectious energy for 15 years, but in a surprising twist, he hung up his judging paddles on the UK show last year.

Fans of Bruno can still enjoy Bruno’s charisma and TV charm lighting up our screens over in the States on Dancing with the Stars and watch as he makes a splash as the newest judge on Britain’s Got Talent, stepping in for David Walliams.

Bruno’s passion for the limelight knows no bounds, and he’s made it crystal clear that he has zero intention of taking a final bow anytime soon. Chatting with The Sun, Bruno delivered a classic one-liner about his dedication to the stage: “If I drop dead I will drop dead on stage. I love what I do. I always had this dream since I was a kid and what has happened is beyond what I could have ever dreamed of.”

He didn’t stop there, adding a touch of Hollywood to his tale of triumph: “Obviously I had to work very hard, I had to teach myself languages, but still being here, still working in the UK, still working in Hollywood. It’s like, ‘Wow! It’s meant to be.'”.

Saturday nights have added sparkle with Bruno back in the mix, with fans are over the moon to see him bring his larger-than-life persona to the BGT panel.

As we gear up for the 17th series of Britain’s Got Talent, Bruno is on a mission to find the next big act for the Royal Variety Performance later this year, proving that this entertainment powerhouse is far from taking his final curtain call.

The Italian host quipped about considering Botox after seeing himself next to his fellow judges, saying: “I went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror and said, ‘Bl**dy hell, I am the only person with wrinkles.'”

He continued: “I do my thing but I haven’t done Botox yet. I will now. There’s nothing wrong with it if it makes you look better on screen, I’m not commenting on that.”

In the season’s opening episode, Bruno was particularly impressed by a group who used AI in their act, coming on stage dressed as characters from The Greatest Showman and using screens to project the judges’ faces onto themselves while singing.

Bruno was astounded by the performance, exclaiming, “How do you do that?!” and “All the mannerisms in the face and everything, where did they get my face?”.

Catch Britain’s Got Talent every Saturday, from 7.30pm, and Sunday from 7.40pm, on ITV
