Bruno Tonioli says it's 'miracle' he lasted 18 years on Strictly after 'blanking' on show
Strictly Come Dancing's Bruno Tonioli has addressed his decision to leave the BBC show.The Italian dancer, 66, claimed it's a "miracle" he lasted nearly two decades on the judging panel as he relayed the scary time he "blanked" on a live show.Speaking about stepping away from the BBC show, Bruno told how he had struggled to split his time between Strictly and Dancing With The Stars, which he films in the US at the same time.The Italian star said: "“There is no animosity, it was a mutual decision with both of us saying, ‘Listen, this is not going to work like it used to.'"I just couldn’t do the flying any more,” he confessed.Addressing the gruelling Strictly schedule, Bruno admitted surprise that he'd managed to last 18 years on the show.He said; "I don’t know how I survived that schedule.To be honest, it’s a miracle," he said to Daily Mail.The star confessed that travelling between countries to do the two shows took a toll on him, explaining: "There was a moment in the middle of a run when I blanked."He added that he was uncertain over what he was doing or even where he was, until seeing the audience made him realise.Bruno featured as a judge on the show when it first launched back in 2004, but earlier this year, the Italian choreographer confirmed his departure.Former Strictly pro Anton Du Beke is set to take his position for good.Appearing on The One Show in May, Bruno said he was sad to leave the show, adding: "I miss it so much".He also added that he will solely concentrate on his role as a judge on Dancing With The Stars.During the pandemic Bruno remained in Los Angeles and missed sitting on the Strictly panel for two years.In 2020 he appeared via video link while last year Anton Du Beke stepped in for him.He cited

Strictly's Craig Revel Horwood admits he'll miss Bruno Tonioli as he exits show
Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood has admitted that he will miss his co-star Bruno Tonioli after he leaves the BBC show, which he has been part of for 18 years.Craig, known for his hard-to-please nature and critical attitude, has judged the celebrity contestants alongside Bruno, known for his flamboyant character and happy-go-lucky personality, for almost 20 years since the show’s debut in 2004.Despite their polar opposite characteristics, Craig has revealed that he will “miss” his old pal as he departs from the show to focus on the American version, Dancing With The Stars.Craig opened up about Bruno’s exit to MailOnline and said: “I am going to miss him, but then I do get to spend quite a few months with him travelling around the country in a Mini so I get my yearly fill, which is quite good.”The dancing duo are set to return for a second series of their ITV show, Craig and Bruno’s Great British Road Trips, which saw the pair travel the length and breadth of the country from Cornwall to Yorkshire and Scotland to the Lake District.The programme went on for six episodes and has been renewed for a second season, so viewers will still continue to see Bruno and Craig’s antics after he leaves Strictly.However, there is an empty spot on the judging panel and Craig has an idea of who he wants to fill it.Speaking of fellow frosty-faced judge Simon Cowell, Craig explained: “I’d like him because I think he would be brilliant television. I’ve met him, but I’m not friends with him.
