It has been reported that several complaints were made about Bruno Tonioli groping Shirley Ballas’ chest.

While giving his opinion of Alexandra Burke’s dance, Bruno ran his hand over Shirley’s breasts and said ‘Touchy, Feely, Soft’. Shirley saw the funny side to this but host Tess Daly was left looking shocked.


The Sun has reported there have been around 20 complaints from viewers that were offended and the BBC are investigating.

A spokesperson told the publication: ‘Bruno’s behaviour was obviously meant to be harmless but a number of viewers didn’t see it that way at all.

The BBC will now look into those complaints and decide if Bruno was out of line.

The number of complaints is minimal compared the the 10.1 million viewers who watched the show though.

In the first injury to hit the show, Ruth Langsford has injured her hamstring and had to miss rehearsals for tonight’s show.

The 57 year old revealed the news on Twitter saying:

The popular host of this morning said: ‘Just before I went down I was in my dressing room, I said: “I’ll just walk through my steps and I’ll just familiarise myself and make sure I know the routine” and I kicked my leg out and I’ve pulled a hamstring.’
