He had been rumoured earlier this month to be have joined the judging panel of the ITV show, but the line-up was officially announced on Tuesday (24.01.23) evening.

Former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Bruno, 67, said in a statement: “Here we are, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’. I am so excited. It’s my first show, I have no idea what’s going to happen, but I’m sure it’s going to be brilliant.”

His new job was also revealed during clips of the taping of the first auditions for the new series of ‘BGT’.

Hosts Ant and Dec welcomed Bruno into the London Palladium auditorium alongside fellow judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon.

A clip of the taping posted on Twitter saw Dec telling fans: “Please give a huge London Palladium welcome to your four judges for this afternoon. They are Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli!”

Ant added: “First of all, before we get underway, can we say a massive welcome to Bruno!”

Comedian David Walliams, 51, left the judging panel after 10 years on the show, and issued a public apology in November for making “disrespectful comments” about contestants during filming for the show.

He said: “These were private conversations and – like most conversations with friends – were never intended to be shared. Nevertheless, I am sorry.”

It’s been reported Bruno will be paid around £850,000 for his new job, and he was said to have still been ironing out his deal on Friday.
