Bruno Tonioli to reveal ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ secrets about Arlene Phillips and Alesha Dixon in new biography!
Nobody could have escaped all the gossip and scandal about Simon Cowell and the goings on behind the scenes of shows like Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor, from Tom Bowers unofficial biography of the powerful music mogul over the last week or so, but it seems to be inspiring other reality TV judges to tell all about the what really goes down working on the UK’s biggest shows.
Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli is now reported to be planning a shocking tell all book, which will document the flamboyant and excitable Italian choreographer’s life stories and role as judge on one of the UKs most popular talent contests. He’s expected to give frank and honest opinions of what he really thinks of all his Strictly Come Dancing colleagues such as stern fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood and British institution and presenter of the show, Sir Bruce Forsyth.
He’s also expected to give his insider take on fellow choreographer Arlene Philips’ controversial departure from the show and the ensuing ageism row, as well as his thoughts on the recent defection of former Strictly winner turned judge Alesha Dixon over to rival ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent. He’ll also have a lot to say on his colleagues across the pond over in America, where he is also a judge on the popular US version of the show Dancing with the stars.
He won’t just be spilling Strictly secrets though, Bruno has a colorful and exciting life story to tell and a glittering career as a dancer for the likes of Elton John and as a choreographer of stage shows for stars such as Tina Turner, amongst others. We’re sure he’ll have no shortage of gossip and revelations about them!
Of course, if he wants to keep his job on Strictly safe, he can’t take it too far, and with Bruno reportedly – and rather conveniently – lining up the release of the tell all biography to coincide with the new series of the Strictly starting later this year on BBC1, we’re guessing it won’t be too detrimental to the show or it’s stars reputations.
Bruno has never been one to keep his mouth shut though, so we can still expect lots of gossip and scandalous stories when the biography is out later this year!
