Why is Bruno Tonioli not on Strictly Come Dancing?

Bruno Tonioli

His "very busy work schedule", which regularly sees him flit between the United Kingdom and the USA for Dancing With The Stars and related shows, seems to have got in the way.

The flamboyant judge has blamed a "busy work schedule" for taking him away from Saturday and Sunday's episodes - making it the first shows he has missed in 13 years.

The usually sour-faced judge was channelling his absent co-star Bruno Toniolo - who was missing his first ever show tonight due to a prior commitment - to praise Debbie McGee's Rumba.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli will not appear on the programme this weekend due to his busy work schedule, the BBC has said.

"He will be back as normal for our Halloween special and the rest of the series".

Will Bruno be back next week?

Xiaomi is presently selling the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 smartphone in India as well as some other countries across the world. According to the latest reports, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is expected to be shipped by the end of 2017 or early 2018.

Bosses have also made the call not to replace Bruno on Saturday's show, instead leaving his fellow judges Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Shirley Ballas to continue as a trio.

A tweet posted on the show's official Twitter account read: "NEWS: @BrunoTonioli won't be on the #Strictly judging panel this week, due to a busy work schedule".

It means that contestants were scored out of a maximum of 30 points and there was chance of a deadlock in the dance-off.

The 12 remaining couples each took to the floor in a bid to impress the judging panel as the competition reached its fifth week. "I think they're going to stick with three judges". After the judges have given their scores, the public will have the chance to cast their votes.

Ruth Langsford, wife of Ulster-born television presenter Eamonn Holmes, is set to dance the seductive samba as she battles to stay on Strictly Come Dancing.
