Bruno to cause 'trouble' on DWTS
Bruno Tonioli has joked that he plans to unleash his acerbic tongue in Dancing With The Stars.
The Italian judge, who sits on the panel alongside Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba, planned to give former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff a "hard time", and The Hoff became the first celebrity to leave the US version of Strictly Come Dancing.
"I'm going to bring so much trouble, I can't wait!" Bruno said.
The judge, who described The Hoff's first routine as "a pot-pourri of insanity disguised as dance", also has his eye set on Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and The Hills star Audrina Patridge.
"We're going to have Sarah Palin sitting in the audience - that's going to go down well with me. Dear me, I'm going to be so careful. It's funny," he continued.
"Audrina is obviously a young cutie, but she's got her work cut out, I'm telling you that."
The 54-year-old tips RnB singer Brandy to do well, saying: "Brandy's great - she could be the new Nicole [Scherzinger]. It's amazing that Michael Bolton would do it. It's an excellent cast."
