At the moment, things are turning out to be a bit more complicated for Bruno Tonioli, who will take a different approach to his judgment this year.
So who are the judges of Strictly Come Dancing 2020? And Bruno Tonioli leaves Strictly? Here’s what you need to know:
Shirley Ballas rigorously judges
Shirley Ballas, Chief Strictly Judge is expected to take on her role as usual this year.
She joined the series in 2017 after Len Goodman stepped down from her role.
Motsi Mabuse strictly judges
Professional dancer, Latin champion and sister of Oti Mabuse, Motsi assumed the role of judge in 2019, replacing Darcey Bussell.
Strictly fans are thrilled to see her take a seat for the second year, however, as she lives in Germany, it is not yet confirmed how she will travel between there and the UK.
Strictly judges Craig Revel Horwood
One of the last original Strictly Come Dancing judges on his feet, Craig is not expected to give up his role in 2020.
The resident “bad” judge, we can’t wait to hear more of Craig’s critique this year.
Bruno Tonioli is leaving Strictly Come Dancing?
It isn’t, but it will take a step back this year due to coronavirus travel restrictions.
Every year he flies back and forth to America where he has other dance work commitments but this year he won’t be able to make the same trips. Instead, he’ll share his critique via Zoom.
