Strictly Come Dancing 2015: Bruno Tonioli tells complaining pros 'stop moaning and f*** off'


Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli has hit out at the show's 'moaning' pro dancers.

The Strictly panelist has taken aim at some professionals who have complained over their fees.

There have been reports that some of the show's dancers are unhappy with how much they are getting paid, especially when compared to the judges.

It's thought that the dancers earn around £30,000 a series compared to the £100,000 or so given to the judges.

But neither is close to the multi-million pound deals found on shows like The X Factor.

Bruno said: “Those are the terms of the negotiations. If you don’t like it, stop moaning and f*** off.”

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “The BBC will never pay the kind of fees that ITV will pay. There are certain fees you won’t get at the BBC, as a dancer ITV always pays more than the BBC, that’s just the way it is."

And Bruno insisted: “Strictly has not made me a millionaire. I still live in the same apartment I bought in 1991, before Strictly. But I never moan. The BBC do a wonderful job.”

Meanwhile, the outrageous TV judge revealed he wished to see Kate Moss on the Strictly dance floor soon.

He told the tabloid this week: “I know Kate and I would love her on the show. The last time I saw her was a couple of years ago but when I see her next I will be getting her involved.”


Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One in the autumn.
