Bruno Tonioli thinks Strictly romances are 'wonderful'

runo Tonioli thinks the "Strictly Come Dancing" curse can be "wonderful".

The 63-year-old judge insists the relationships formed on the show should be seen as a "blessing" because it is always good to see "passion".

Asked if he believes in the so-called curse, he said: "I think it's been created: sometimes it could be a blessing? I mean, people together and passion is a wonderful, wonderful thing!"

And Bruno thinks it's common for relationships to form in the workplace so there is nothing different about it happening on the show.

He told Event magazine: "I love it that people are so involved, but it could happen in any situation where people work close together. It could happen in a factory, it could happen in an office.

He said: "I like Joe Sugg. He never danced and he just keeps improving, and people respond to that."
