Bruno Tonioli

Strictly & Dancing With The Stars

Synopsis

The gesticulating Italian has waltzed into public affection as the flirty judge on Strictly. Bruno has also choreographed stars like Michael Jackson, and made his name on the other side of the pond in Dancing With The Stars.

Biography

The exuberant Strictly judge now divides his time between the UK and Los Angeles for Dancing With The Stars.

After refusing to follow his parents’ wishes and become a banker, Bruno ran away to ballet school in Rome, before settling in London. He has choreographed since for both stage and screen, most notably Bananarama, Sting, and - bizarrely - Not The Nine O’Clock News.

Best known for his star turn on Strictly, Bruno has choreographed for Michael Jackson, Elton John and Freddie Mercury, as well as live tours for Steve Coogan and French & Saunders. After dinner he recalls some of the more ridiculous contestants, and the more heated exchanges.
