Strictly fans are convinced Bruno Tonioli SWORE live on air this evening

But did he say what they think he said?

Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli has a reputation for his very enthusiastic critiques.

But fans got overexcited themselves when it seemed like Bruno had let an F-bomb slip as he complimented Debbie McGee’s performance.

Fans took to Twitter to share their disbelief.

One wrote: “But Bruno said a swear though.

While another added: “Did Bruno just stop the F bomb live on national TV?!”

However, what he ACTUALLY said was nowhere near as offensive.

He told Debbie: “You’re very precise, you’re so dainty.

“I love all this clipped movement.

“There’s no faffing about with the free hand, hit the beat and get it done and get it clean.

“Well done my darling.”

So it was ‘faffing about’ that had viewers confused!

Some fans hadn’t been so easily fooled, and stepped in on social media to point it out.

One helpfully wrote: “Rewind …he said faffing.”
