Craig Revel Horwood has said he would love to see his former co-star Bruno Tonioli become a judge on Britain’s Got Talent – but says he’s too secretive to reveal whether he actually got the job.
Tonioli, who judged Strictly Come Dancing with Revel Horwood until 2019, is rumored to be the latest star to succeed David Walliams as a judge on BGT.

Walliams is said to not be returning to his role after 10 years with the ITV show after he was overheard making insulting comments about a contestant, and comedian Alan Carr is also rumored to be on the panel campaign.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Revel Horwood said: “I’d love to see Bruno back on our screens, I think it’s a great position, so I wish him the best of luck in the campaign because I think It’s great that he can bring back that energy on TV.”
But the TV star made it clear he wasn’t sure who got the job.

He said: “I would like to say that he is [the new BGT judge] But I believe he’s also up against Alan Carr, so I think they’re juggling and they’re going to leave it as a surprise, so I actually don’t know.
“And Bruno was very secretive to me, honey, so he would never be honest with me or tell me the truth. So I really don’t know.”
Tonioli was unable to join Strictly as a judge during the Covid pandemic, as he usually travels between the US and the UK, and Anton Du Beke was confirmed as his permanent replacement on the dance program last year.
Britain’s Got Talent has previously signed a former BBC star for the ITV show – long-time judge Alesha Dixon moved from her judge role at Strictly to the competition, where she worked with Tonioli.
