Bruno My Story

    By

    Bruno Tonioli is the unmistakably flamboyant Italian who has entertained Strictly Come Dancing's countless fans for very nearly a decade. Bruno lights up every episode of the smash UK show - as well as Dancing in the Stars in the USA - with his high-energy, warm and deliciously humourous critiques of the celebrity contestants. For the very first time, fans can now read all about this highly engaging and life-affirming man who has rapidly established himself as a British national treasure.Born to staunchly working class parents and raised in a very conservative Catholic village in northern Italy, Tonioli knew from the age of 8 that he was not constructed like many of the other boys he played with. Forced to train for a "proper job" as a bank clerk, Bruno was eventually to find a way to express his creative abilities and ended up a dancer and then a renowned choreographer, arriving in Britain in the early 1980s. His career took off and he found himself immersed in the buzz and hedonism of the vibrant 80s scene, rubbing shoulders with the great and the good from the worlds of theatre, music and film. Wonderfully rich and colourful stories from this era abound.For Bruno, the last decade has - of course - been very largely about the Strictly phenomenon, and his memoirs do not disappoint in taking fans behind the scenes to witness for themselves the magical ingredients of one of the most popular shows on TV. The book will delight with its warmth, depth and wonderful sense of joie de vivre.
